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.

Lowrie is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though he's a switch-hitter, Lowrie has been comparatively worse against left-handers this season, failing to produce an extra-base hit in 49 plate appearances against them. With southpaw Hector Santiago on the hill for the Angels, Lowrie will bow out of the lineup and afford Arismendy Alcantara a turn at the keystone.

Lowrie is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The switch-hitting Lowrie will head to the bench against Texas lefty Cesar Ramos. Tyler Ladendorf will man the keystone in Lowrie's absence, while Marcus Semien will move up to hit second in the order Monday night.

Lowrie went 3-for-5 in Sunday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

He snapped out of a 2-for-18 mini-slump with authority but Lowrie continues to have trouble producing with runners on base as the only RBI he's managed in his last 13 games came on a solo home run. His .303/.354/.366 slash line on the season still gives him plenty of fantasy value, however.

Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a game-tying solo homer and a pair of walks in Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was the hero for the moment in the top of the ninth, as he blasted a 349-foot shot into the right-field bleachers off Astros reliever Luke Gregorson with two outs to knot the score up at 5-5. Lowrie continues to exceed expectations this season, as he's now hitting .316 following his .302 May and his five hits in 13 at-bats to kick off June.

Lowrie went 1-for-3 with a triple and an RBI Friday against the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old infielder struggled a bit before missing time due to injury, but he hasn't missed a beat since returning from the disabled list, going 3-for-7 in the last two games. His average sits now at .309, considerably higher than his career average of .259, so he might regress as the season progresses.

Lowrie is in the lineup Wednesday, batting fifth and starting at second base.

EDGE Analysis

After a lower leg contusion put Lowrie on the DL for the minimum 15 days, the veteran utility man will immediate rejoin the A's lineup for Wednesday's matchup against the Mariners. He figures to take over the regular starting role at second base while Chris Coghlan, his replacement while he was on the DL, will likely work his way into a platoon role in the A's outfield.

Lowrie (lower leg) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie returns to the A's on the first day he's eligible after spending the minimum 15 days on the DL due to a shin contusion. His return is a welcome sight for an Oakland club that has been decimated by injuries of late. Lowrie figures to take back over his spot at second base, which would allow manager Bob Melvin to utilize Chris Coghlan's versatility elsewhere.

Lowrie (shin) thinks he will play one rehab game before coming off the DL on May 25, after he was able to run for the first time Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Earlier this week, reports came out that Lowrie was hitting off a tee, and after beginning to run again Wednesday, his progression is on pace to get him back the first day he's eligible. Lowrie went on the DL with a shin contusion on May 10 and will likely take back his spot at second base over Chris Coghlan, who started in his absence.
