Jed Lowrie back in action Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6:07 pm ET) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie returned to the starting lineup Monday night against the Angels, one day removed from getting hit in the foot by a pitch, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. He is hitting .245 with six homers and 46 RBI over 474 at-bats this season.

Derek Jeter will play final seven games


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2:05 pm ET) Manager Joe Girardi told the New York Daily News that he intends to have retiring shortstop Derek Jeter in the starting lineup for each of the Yankees' final seven games.

"Obviously, some of those days are going to be DH days to keep him going," Girardi said.

Jeter has begun his final homestand with four straight multi-hit games, batting .471 (8 for 17) with a home run and two doubles during that stretch.

"He's hit the ball with more authority," Girardi said. "That's the ups and downs of a hitter. A lot of times, when a guy is older and they're going through it, everyone's ready to write him off. That's what happens. That's the nature of the business. But he's swung the bat extremely well."

(9/21/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie was hit in the foot by a pitch in his first at-bat Sunday against the Phillies, but the Athletics didn't remove him from the game until the fifth inning. Nick Punto took his place.

"He's all right," manager Bob Melvin told MLB.com. "Just got it pretty good on the foot. As a shortstop you have to have your range, and on the ball in the hole he was having a little trouble getting over there."

Lowrie is day to day.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) Rays infielder Nick Franklin is in the starting lineup for Tuesday game against the Yankees, as he gets set to make his team debut.

Xander Bogaerts credits rest for turnaround


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/15/2014) Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts, who homered again Sunday at Kansas City to give him four home runs along with a .359 (23 for 64) batting average in 16 games since returning from an eight-day absence for a concussion in late August, thinks that break may have contributed to this surge, according to the Boston Herald.

"When I went down for a few days helped me out a lot," he said. "So, I feel good."

Bogaerts suggested he also benefited from the All-Star break, and the numbers back it up. In the 11 games immediately after the break, he hit .317 (13 for 41) with two home runs compared to .103 (11 for 107) with one home run in the 29 games immediately before it.

Manager John Farrell chooses to focus on the mechanical difference he sees from Bogaerts when the rookie is, in his own mind, well rested.

"Since coming back from the concussion he's been more balanced, and what it's allowed him to do is see the ball a little more clearly," said Farrell. "He's not lunging as violently to his front side and he's staying behind some swings. He's been able to carry it now for quite a while."
