Lowrie (toe) underwent surgery in September for a deviated septum, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie had already had season-ending foot surgery in August, but this issue -- which he indicated he'd had for the past decade -- was also addressed. The 32-year-old is apparently ahead of schedule in his recovery from the first surgery, as he's slated to leave behind his walking boot and is hoping to resume baseball activities in November with an eye toward being fully healthy by the start of spring training.

Lowrie (toe) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

He has already undergone season-ending surgery to remove a bunion on his left foot. This move allows the A's to add shortstop prospect Chad Pinder to the 40-man roster, as he will be needed to man the six spot when Marcus Semien is placed on paternity leave later this week.

Lowrie (foot) will undergo season-ending surgery to remove a bunion from his left foot, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie, out since August 4, will see his season come to an end after feeling significant pain for several weeks. The 32-year-old finishes with a .263 average, two home runs, and just 27 RBI in 87 games played. Lowrie's production at the plate has steadily declined over the past few seasons, but his defensive skill set has not receded. Expect him to return to the Oakland starting lineup next season. For now, Max Muncy will presume the starting role at second base.

Lowrie (toe) had an MRI on Monday, John Hickey of the East Bay Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The results of Lowrie's MRI have yet to be announced, but they should be known in the coming days. Lowrie has said that he's still feeling the same amount of pain in his toe, so a return before the end of August seems doubtful at this point in time. In the meantime, expect Max Muncy to continue starting at second base while Lowrie's toe heals.

The Athletics placed Lowrie on the disabled list on Friday with a left foot injury.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie has been dealing with the injury for a couple of weeks now, so the Athletics finally decided to shut him down. There is a chance Lowrie could require surgery which would end his 2016 season. This injury could explain Lowrie's struggles at the plate in both July and August, hitting .202 and .125 respectively. Max Muncy looks to receive the bulk of the work at second base in Lowrie's absence.

Lowrie (toe) is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie has been dealing with a sore left foot, more specifically a bunion on his toe, for the past couple weeks and will be out of the lineup for Thursday's contest. He has been playing through it, but after talking about the injury Wednesday, Lowrie could spend some time trying to recover from the injury. He will be considered day-to-day for now and may be back in the lineup Friday, but will be replaced by Max Muncy at second base for Thursday's game.

Lowrie has been dealing with a sore left foot for the past few weeks, but has played through it and remains in the lineup, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie is indeed in the lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Angels, playing second base and batting eighth. Even though he's continued to play (only missing three games since the start of July), his bat has begun to suffer, hitting just .143/.178/.167 over the course of the last 10 games. It is worth keeping an eye on how Lowrie is playing, and he could wind up missing time if the A's decide that he needs a rest.

Lowrie is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie has gone 0-for-12 at the dish over his last three games, so A's manager Bob Melvin will give the second baseman a day off to recharge. Max Muncy steps in to make his first career MLB start at the keystone.

Lowrie is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie's nine-game hitting streak may be put on hold Sunday with manager Doug Melvin resting the switch-hitting infielder in favor of the lightly-used Tyler Ladendorf. While the 32-year-old Lowrie has dealt with some injury issues this season, he's been an effective performer in the A's lineup when healthy, accruing a .292/.347/.362 batting line across 268 plate appearances.

Lowrie was 1-for-4 with his second homer Wednesday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was only Lowrie's second of the season in 232 at-bats as he has struggled to find his power stroke so far in 2016. He has been a surprise for fantasy owners in batting average, posting a .293 mark to date. The lack of homers for Lowrie can be attributed to a significant drop in his fly ball to to 32%, a more than 10% drop from his average over the prior three seasons. If Lowrie can keep the batting average where it is, he does provide some value in deeper leagues at a middle infield position, but the current lack of power combined with no speed potential severely caps his upside.
