Lowrie will return as the A's second baseman next season, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

GM David Forst reportedly said that Lowrie will be returning, suggesting the team plans to pick up his $6 million option for 2018. The veteran suited up for 153 contests, racking up a career-high 49 doubles to go with 69 RBI, a .277 average and 86 runs. Given it'll be the last year of his contract, Lowrie will be motivated to perform well again in what will be his age-34 season.

Lowrie went 3-for-5 with a double, a grand slam, five RBI and two runs against the Tigers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The last three games have seen Lowrie drive home nine runs courtesy of four extra-base knocks, but his hot streak actually extends all the way back into August -- over his last 17 games, Lowrie's hit .365/.468/.603 with a couple homers, 16 RBI, 15 runs and a startling 13:8 BB:K. The veteran second baseman has easily set a new career high in walks (67) this season, driving what's been one of the best campaigns of his inconsistent, injury-ravaged career.

Lowrie went 1-for-3 with three RBI from a run-scoring double, a sacrifice fly and a bases-loaded walk in Monday's 8-3 win over the Tigers. He also had an additional walk.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie made the most of his at-bats in the win, leading to his second multi-RBI game in the last five contests. The veteran has reached safely in nine straight games and has seven of his 10 RBI in September over the last six contests as well. Factoring in Monday's production, he's now slashing .340/.460/.560 over 63 September plate appearances.

Lowrie is not in the lineup Sunday against the Phillies.

Lowrie went 3-for-4 with two RBI from a double and a triple and two runs in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie burned one of his old squads with the pair of run-scoring hits, raising his September line to .378/.477/.568 in the process. The 33-year-old has yet to go deep this month, but he's already tallied six extra-base hits (five doubles, one triple) and is now just three short of eclipsing the career-best 62 he smacked back in 2013.

Lowrie went 1-for-2 with an RBI double and a walk in Tuesday's 11-1 loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie's first-inning two-bagger with a man on opened the scoring on the night for either team and would turn out to be the Athletics' only run of the contest. The veteran extended his hitting streak to four games in the process, and he's hit safely in eight of nine September contests overall. Lowrie is slashing .333/.450/.455 over 40 plate appearances this month and is sporting an impressive 34.5 percent line drive rate over that span.

Lowrie is not in the Athletics' lineup Saturday for Game 2 of their doubleheader, Joe Stiglich of NBC Sports California reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll cede starting duties to Joey Wendle. Lowrie went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in the front end of this pair of games and likely will return Sunday if he doesn't appear as a pinch hitter in the nightcap.

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

EDGE Analysis

Coming off Tuesday's solid performance, in which he went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored, Lowrie will get the day off. With Lowrie sitting out, Oakland will start Franklin Barreto at second base.

Lowrie went 3-for-4 with two walks and three runs in Monday's 11-9 extra-inning loss to the Angels.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie has started September wielding a hot bat and now sports a five-game hitting streak dating back to the end of August. The veteran infielder has been consistent offensive force throughout the season, as he's upped his RBI total in each successive month and currently boasts his best slash line (.274/.353/.440) since 2013.

Lowrie is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

As a 33-year-old on a team out of playoff contention, Lowrie will likely receive more frequent days off in September, but he probably won't be pushed to the bench on a regular basis, as he still looks set to return to the Athletics in 2018 after the team declined to move him at the trade deadline. He'll get a breather Sunday, however, affording middle-infield prospect Franklin Barreto a turn at the keystone.
