Lowrie is not in the Athletics' lineup Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

It's a bit surprising that Lowrie will take a breather against a right-hander (Marcus Stroman), considering his success against them, but the A's want to let him rest during the Thursday matinee. Adam Rosales fills in for him at second base, but assuming all else is OK, Lowrie should be back in the lineup Friday.

Lowrie is not in the lineup Friday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie has been better against right-handed pitching this season (.818 OPS vs. RHP, .650 OPS vs. LHP), so the Athletics opted to give him his first off day in the month of July since southpaw Steven Matz is on the hill for New York. Adam Rosales will replace him at the keystone for the night.

Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a double and a run in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder produced his first multi-hit effort since July 6, which also marked the last time he'd notched a two-bagger. After an impressive first three months of the season, Lowrie has had a rough landing in July, slashing .186/.226/.271 with just three extra-base hits (two doubles, one home run) and a .218 wOBA over 62 plate appearances. However, Lowrie's line-drive rate (25.0 percent) and hard-contact rate (32.5 percent) over that span remain relatively in line with those of previous months, so his current .256 BABIP since July 1 may be the primary culprit with respect to his unsightly numbers.

Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie's 10 homers on the season represent his best tally in that category since 2013, while his .455 slugging percentage is his highest since 2010. The veteran round tripper was his first since June 15, however, and the 33-year-old is hitting just .188 in 12 July games.

Lowrie went 3-for-4 with a two-run single and a run in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran infielder has been a steady offensive presence during what has been one of his best seasons at the plate in several years. His latest stretch of success includes hits eight of his last 10 games, including three multi-hit efforts over that span. Lowrie has impressively rapped out 37 extra-base hits through 341 plate appearances as well, putting him on pace to eclipse the career-best 62 he generated over 662 plate appearances in 2013.

Lowrie went 2-for-4 with his ninth home run, two RBI and two runs against the Astros on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

So ends a nine-game homer drought in which Lowrie hit just .194, but he'd been showing signs of emerging from that slump over the past couple games. Lowrie's career-long injury woes have always situated him at the fringes of fantasy relevance in most leagues, but he's producing a few interesting stats as things stand right now, headlined by 49 runs scored along with a .288 average and those nine homers.

Lowrie (knee) went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in a win over Houston on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie, who was held out of the starting lineup the previous two games, was able to do some damage against his old team in his return. It was the second baseman's 25th double of the season and brought his slugging percentage to .478, his best mark since he slugged .526 with Boston in 2010.

Lowrie (knee) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

It will be the third consecutive game Lowrie doesn't start, though he did record a pinch-hit RBI double Sunday. Regardless, it seems his minor knee sprain is continuing to act up, so Franklin Barreto will start at second base in his stead. It doesn't appear a DL stint will be necessary, so consider Lowrie day-to-day as the week progresses.

Lowrie (knee) came in to pinch hit during Sunday's contest, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie came in to bat in the seventh inning and smacked a double but was subsequently pulled for a pinch runner. This news comes as a surprise considering the team announced that he could be going to see a doctor Monday to get an examination on his knee sprain. For the time being, Lowrie should still be considered day-to-day with the A's having a scheduled off day coming Monday followed by a three-game set in Houston.

Lowrie might see a doctor Monday due to his knee sprain, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lowrie is out of the lineup again after getting scratched Saturday due to the minor sprain, but the need to see a doctor increases concern for the second baseman. If he does indeed get the knee examined, there will likely be a clear timetable moving forward. For now, Franklin Barreto will make his second career start at the keystone during Sunday's series finale.
