Description: Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie had a two-run single in the season finale against the Rangers.
Insight: Lowrie provided some much needed insurance with his two RBI in the ninth inning to extend the Athletics lead to 4-0. Overall however, Lowrie had a down season compared to his numbers last year. He hit .249/.321/.355 with six home runs and 50 RBI this season.

9/22/2014 6:47:00 PM

Description: Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with the game-winning RBI in the bottom of the ninth to lift Oakland past Houston, 4-3.
Insight: Lowrie has had his struggles this season, but it must have felt good for him and the A's to overcome a two-run deficit in the ninth to comeback and win. Lowrie is batting .242 with 35 extra-base hits, 43 RBI and 54 runs.
 
9/1/2014 1:17:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie (fractured finger) has been activated from the disabled list
Insight: He's already admitted he isn't 100 percent, but after missing three weeks he's going to try to play. In 110 games, Lowrie is hitting .238 with five home runs, 42 RBI and 53 runs scored. It's probably best to avoid him for a while until we see how well he can swing a bat.
 
8/29/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie (fractured finger) will begin his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.
Insight: Lowrie is expected to play in Triple-A over the weekend and if all goes well, rejoin the big league club on Tuesday when rosters expand. In 110 games, Lowrie is hitting .238 with five home runs and 42 RBI.
 
8/14/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie (fractured finger) played Wednesday, but is expected to go on the disabled list.
Insight: Lowrie (.238, 5 HR, 42 RBI) tried, but the broken finger effected his hitting and throwing. Lowrie has not been able to reproduce last season's solid numbers (.290, 15 HR, 75 RBI, 80 runs). The A's are going to call up Andy Parrino.
 
8/13/2014 6:06:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie (fractured finger) is in the lineup Wednesday.
Insight: Lowrie has a fractured right index finger, but he's going to try to play through it. He hasn't had a good season at the plate and the injury won't help him turn things around.
 
8/12/2014 9:07:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie's MRI revealed a fractured right index finger, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Lowrie intends to keep playing through the injury. He hasn't had a good season at the plate and the injury won't help him turn things around.
 
8/8/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie (finger) is in the lineup Friday, according to John Hickey of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Lowrie was out of the starting lineup the last three games due to a bruised finger. His .290 average, 15 homers and 75 RBI last season made him a strong option at shortstop for fantasy owners, but he's followed up that campaign with a .245 average, five homers and 42 RBI.
 
8/6/2014 1:05:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie (finger) is not in the lineup for the second straight game Wednesday.
Insight: Lowrie is dealing with a bruised finger. His .290 average, 15 homers and 75 RBI last season made him a strong option at shortstop for fantasy owners, but he's followed up that campaign with a .245 average, five homers and 42 RBI. Eric Sogard is starting at shortstop again.
 
8/5/2014 7:33:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie is out of the lineup Tuesday due to a bruised finger, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Lowrie's .290 average, 15 homers and 75 RBI last season made him a strong option at shortstop for fantasy owners, but he's followed up that campaign with a .245 average, five homers and 42 RBI.

Description: A's shortstop Jed Lowrie is not in Thursday's starting lineup. SOURCE: Jane Lee, MLB.com
Insight: He's been dealing with a strained neck/trap muscle. Lowrie has followed up a very productive 2013 season (.290, 15 HR, 75 RBI) with a mediocre year in 2014 (.241, 3 HR, 20 RBI). Nick Punto will make the start at shortstop but he's not worth owning in fantasy.
 
5/24/2014 11:34:00 AM
Description: A's shortstop Jed Lowrie is not in Saturday's starting lineup.
Insight: Although he missed a couple of games with a neck strain, this appears to be a regularly scheduled day off. Lowrie's numbers have been mediocre this season (.251, 3 HR, 18 RBI) after a very productive 2013 (.290, 15 HR, 75 RBI, 80 runs).
 
5/22/2014 5:46:00 PM
Description: A's shortstop Jed Lowrie returned to the lineup Thursday against the Rays. SOURCE: Susan Slusser, San Francisco Chronicle
Insight: He had been out with a neck strain. Lowrie's numbers have been so-so (.258, 3 HR, 18 RBI) but the league's lack of depth at shortstop makes him worth holding onto in fantasy.
 
5/20/2014 2:39:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie left Sunday's game with a neck strain and is not in Tuesday's lineup.
Insight: Lowrie is considered day-to-day. Nick Punto will again take over at shortstop, but has little fantasy value with his .225 batting average, zero homers and six RBI.
 
5/18/2014 1:55:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie left Sunday's game with a neck strain, according to John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group.
Insight: Lowrie is considered day-to-day. Nick Punto took over at shortstop Sunday at Cleveland.
 
5/18/2014 9:47:00 AM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie is just 2-for-14 (.143) in his career against Indians starter Justin Masterson.
Insight: For a 180-pound guy who plays in a huge ballpark, Lowrie hits far too many fly balls (50 percent FB rate). That's why he's only hitting .259 with a .279 BABIP even though he's lowered his K rate and raised his walk rate from last year. Avoid him Sunday against Masterson.
 
5/16/2014 10:16:00 PM
Description: Oakland shortstop Jed Lowrie went 2-for-5 with a homer and two RBI Friday against the Indians.
Insight: Lowrie is batting .266 with three homers on the year, but he has a solid 20/22 K/BB, 14 doubles and 24 runs scored.
