Jed Lowrie 2B/SS/3B OAK 3 days ago

Lowrie collected a double and a triple while driving in a run and scoring a run in Wednesday's 9-4 loss to the Tigers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It was another solid game for Lowrie, who now has a six-game hit streak going. He's never hit higher than .290 in a season, so it's not likely that his average will stay at the .312 mark it is at now. Still, Lowrie has ben a solid producer this season in the middle of the Oakland lineup.

Lowrie, who is out of the lineup Sunday against the Blue Jays, is dealing with a minor calf injury, John Hickey of the Oakland Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lowrie could probably play through the injury if necessary, but with the season still in its infancy, manager Bob Melvin decided it was best to hold out the infielder for rest to avoid the calf issue turning into something more serious. Tyler Ladendorf received the starting nod at second base Sunday, but Lowrie is expected to be back in the lineup Monday against the Tigers.

Lowrie is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, John Hickey of the Oakland Tribune reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

It looks to be nothing more than a rest day for the sizzling Lowrie, who started each of the past five games, going 9-for-21 at the dish. The recently recalled Tyler Ladendorf will make his first start of 2016 at second base in place of Lowrie.

Lowrie went 4-for-5 with an RBI and two runs in Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Yankees.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 32-year-old is looking to revitalize his career in Oakland after losing his job in Houston last season to Carlos Correa. Lowrie's true value comes from his versatility and expanded position eligibility. In 2015, he played 47 games at third base and 17 at shortstop. So far this year, Lowrie has 12 starts at second base and two at short. Depending on your league's settings, the veteran might be eligible at three infield positions by mid-May.

Lowrie is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lowrie went just 1-for-12 over his last four games, so he will get a day to clear his head Sunday. Chris Coghlan will fill in at second base in Lowrie's absence.

Lowrie appears locked in to the starting second base job for the A's to begin the season.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Lowrie was re-acquired from the Astros in the off-season and gives the A's some pop at second base to replace the traded Brett Lawrie. Lowrie is more suited for second base as his arm strength was sometimes a problem when he played shortstop for the A's in 2013 and 2014. Health has always been a major issue for Lowrie and it reared its head again in 2015 as he only appeared in 69 games for the Astros. If Lowrie can stay on the field, he has a chance to be a sneaky deep league play as he will have both 3B and 2B eligibility early on in the season and could provide double digit homers from a middle infield slot.

Lowrie has been traded to the Athletics, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The story is still developing, and at this point it's unknown what Oakland will send back to Houston in exchange for the versatile infielder. Lowrie, who's due to make $7.5 million in 2016, is capable of playing second base, third base and shortstop, and at this point it's unclear where Oakland plans to use him long-term. The 31-year-old played primarily at third base last season, appearing in just 69 total games while battling injuries to his thumb, foot and quad.
