Latest Update Jed Lowrie (finger) will go on an injury rehab assignment this weekend Wed Aug, 27, 06:20 PM
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 successful two-handed swings on Wednesday means batting practice Thursday. Should that go well, then we're looking at a rehab assignment. Lowrie will be eligible to return on September 1.Analyst: Howard Bender
It shouldn't be a surprise that the A's want to give Lowrie an extra couple of days to recover. He has been underwhelming this year, but will look to make a positive impact upon his return to the lineup.Analyst: David Kerr
The switch hitting shortstop has been out since August 13 with a fractured index finger. His season has very disappointing from fantasy perspective, so there's no reason to stash him in redraft leagues.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
