Jed Lowrie: Retires from baseball
Lowrie announced his retirement from baseball Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lowrie batted just .180/.245/.263 in 184 plate appearances last season with the Athletics before getting released in August. The 38-year-old infielder will hang up his cleats with 1,185 career hits and a lifetime .257/.330/.406 slash line spread over parts of 14 major-league campaigns. Beyond his seven years with the A's, he also spent time with the Red Sox, Astros and Mets.... See More ... See Less
Jed Lowrie: Parts ways with Oakland
Lowrie was released by the A's on Thursday.
Lowrie was designated for assignment by Oakland on Wednesday, and he's now officially on the open market. The 38-year-old has appeared in 50 games this season and has a .180/.245/.263 slash line with three home runs and 16 RBI.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Designated for assignment
Lowrie was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Wednesday.
Lowrie wasn't in the lineup for the last two games, and he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster after slashing just .180/.245/.263 with three home runs, 16 RBI, 14 runs and a stolen base over 50 games with the Athletics this year. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 38-year-old become a free agent if he goes unclaimed on waivers. Seth Brown should see increased playing time as the Athletics' designated hitter.... See More ...

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: On bench again Tuesday
Lowrie is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels.
Lowrie is 2-for-16 with a double and a walk in four games since being reinstated from the injured list last week, and he'll take a seat for the second consecutive contest. Chad Pinder will bat fifth as the designated hitter Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Left out of Monday's lineup
Lowrie is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels.
Lowrie is just 2-for-16 (.125) since being activated from the injured list last week, so he will get a mental break Monday. Stephen Piscotty will serve as Oakland's designated hitter instead.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Singles in return from IL
Lowrie (shoulder), activated from the injured list earlier in the day, served as the designated hitter and went 1-for-4 in a loss to the Angels on Tuesday.
Lowrie was logging his first game action since June 26, and it was naturally a nice plus that he was able to not only suit up, but hit safely right out of the gate. However, Lowrie's .187 average and .522 OPS as well as his middling 85.8 mph exit velocity and career-low 17.8 percent line-drive rate all support the notion that he's likely lost some bat speed and power in his age-38 season....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Returns from injured list
Lowrie (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lowrie wound up missing slightly more than a month with a left shoulder injury, but he's ready to go after grabbing six hits (including a pair of homers) in five rehab games. The Athletics don't have much incentive to give a ton of at-bats to a 38-year-old on an expiring deal down the stretch, however, so it's unclear how often he'll be in the lineup going forward....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Stellar night for Las Vegas
Lowrie (shoulder) started at first base in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Albuquerque on Saturday and went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, a two-run shot and four total runs.
Lowrie played nearly a full game and seemed to have rediscovered his stroke at the plate following a 1-for-11 showing over his first three rehab contests. Lowrie's extended stint on defense was also a good sign for his previously injured shoulder, and it remains to be seen if the Athletics feel he's shown enough to be deemed ready for activation to open the week....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Plays first two rehab games
Lowrie (shoulder) went a combined 1-for-8 with a walk over his first two rehab games with Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The veteran was eased into his first game action in a month Tuesday by logging three plate appearances while playing first base, and he subsequently took a full complement while serving as the designated hitter Wednesday. With no apparent setbacks, it's possible Lowrie will only require another couple of games before activation is considered.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Picking up rehab pace
Lowrie (shoulder) took batting practice Friday and is slated to do so again Saturday while also running the bases, Sonja Chen of MLB.com reports.
The veteran also performed running drills on the field Friday and came away from the pregame work saying his swing particularly felt good. The Athletics will reevaluate Lowrie after Saturday's activities in order to determine the next steps in his recovery process.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Receives cortisone shot
Lowrie (shoulder) underwent an MRI that revealed some fluid in his shoulder, and he received a cortisone shot, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
Lowrie landed on the injured list with a shoulder injury Thursday, and he'll rest for a few days prior to resuming a strengthening program. The 38-year-old doesn't have a timetable to return, but it's possible that he'll require more than the minimum of 10 days on the IL.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Undergoes MRI
Lowrie had an MRI on his shoulder Thursday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Lowrie landed on the injured list Thursday, but the team is looking to clarify the extent of the injury. The issue initially emerged in early June, but Oakland believed that Lowrie had made enough progress to avoid an extended absence. Instead, Lowrie will be sidelined for at least the next 10 days....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Placed on 10-day IL
Lowrie (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.
Lowrie didn't appear in the last three games due to a left shoulder injury, and the issue will force him to miss at least a week and a half. It's not yet clear when the Athletics expect him to return to action, but he isn't guaranteed regular playing time for the rebuilding squad once he's cleared to rejoin the team.... See More ...

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Battling shoulder injury
Athletics manager Mark Kotsay said Wednesday that Lowrie's recent string of absences from the lineup is related to a left shoulder injury, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "We're giving him this opportunity to see if we can get his strength back," Kotsay said of Lowrie, who initially sustained the injury July 9, when he collided with a baserunner while covering first base.
In the 18 games since he suffered the injury in question, Lowrie has picked up just four starts, including only one in the Athletics' most recent seven contests. Kotsay noted that the Athletics have considered placing Lowrie on the 10-day injured list, but the team looks as though it'll wait another day or two before making a decision on that front. The 38-year-old Lowrie is hitless in his last 25 at-bats and likely isn't a high-priority player for the rebuilding Athletics, so he could be phased out of the regular lineup even if he moves past the shoulder issue in the near future....

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Out against lefty
Lowrie is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Yankees, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The switch-hitting Lowrie is on the bench for the fourth time in five games, this time taking a seat versus a lefty starting pitcher (Jordan Montgomery). Given his recent usage as well as the 25-49 Athletics' status as a non-contender, the 38-year-old Lowrie may be more likely to see his role dwindle than grow as the season rolls along. The likes of Seth Brown and Christian Bethancourt may be better bets to pick up starts at designated hitter at Lowrie's expense.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Remains on bench
Lowrie is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Christian Bethancourt will serve as the designated hitter Saturday, and he's fifth different DH the A's have used over the past five games. Lowrie still appears to be the primary option as Oakland's DH, but that clearly doesn't guarantee a spot in the everyday lineup.... See More ... See Less
