Latest Update Lowrie homers in A's loss Tue Sep, 09, 12:06 AM
Has good offensive and defensive instincts. A doubles machine, he also boasts pretty good home-run power for an infielder. Uses excellent positioning on defense. Can play anywhere in the infield.
Flaws: : Doesn't have enough speed to be a big factor on the basepaths. Needs to continue to cut down on his strikeout totals. Doesn't have a top-tier arm for the shortstop position.
The home run was just Lowrie's second since the beginning of June, bringing his total to a measly six for the season. The power outage has limited his fantasy value. Still, he's just a year removed from swatting 15 dingers in 662 PA and two years removed from hitting 16 in 387 PA. It would be nice to see him make a push for double digits over the next three weeks. The A's are desperate for pop. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Lowrie is now 6-for-19 (.316 BA) since being activated from the disabled list back on September 1 as he does his best to turn things around after a sub-par start to the season. Considering he qualifies at both second base and shortstop in most league formats, Lowrie makes form a solid investment down the stretch if he can continue to keep up the pace he has set over the last week of the season. Through 424 at-bats, Lowrie is slashing .242/.317/.352 with five home runs and 43 RBI in 2014. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Lowrie is healthy again and ready for action. He'll slot right back in at shortstop and should be activated immediately.Analyst: Howard Bender
Fantasy players in weekly leagues should get Lowrie back in their lineups this week.Analyst: Steve Pimental
