Latest Update Jed Lowrie with 8 multi-hit games over his last 15 Thu Jul, 24, 08:37 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.
Lowrie has been able to turn things around of late and with a decent power stroke ( 5 RBI last six games) to go along with his recent increase in batting average, he makes for a solid bounce back candidate in the second half. Considering he qualifies at both second base and shortstop in most leagues, he is an instant add if he is able to keep this current streak going a little longer.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Lowrie came into Saturday's contest hitting just .146 (14-for-96) over his previous 25 games, so hopefully this multi-hit performance will kick start a hot streak for the A's shortstop.Analyst: Michael Pichan
Lowrie has certainly started off the season on a low note, but has now connected for five hits over his last 15 at-bats as he is starting to show signs of life. He is sitting on a .221 average with four home runs and 31 RBI through 285 at-bats, which has resulted in a drop in the batting order all the way to the seventh spot. Although his recent production is nice to see, he will have to do more before gaining the trust of his fantasy owners once again. Analyst: Matthew Beck
While he broke out of a 2-for-19 slump with hits in each of his last two games, Lowrie is going to get Sunday off against lefty Andrew Heaney. The always reliable and rarely-productive Nick Punto will handle the work at shortstop.Analyst: Howard Bender
