Jed Lowrie open to returning to A's
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/1/14) Upcoming free-agent shortstop Jed Lowrie is willing to listen to the Athletics regarding a potential return next season but admitted that money will be a factor in his decision, MLB.com reports.
After two years of hitting at least 15 home runs, Lowrie saw his power fall in 2014, hitting .249/.321/.355 with just six home runs and 50 RBI in 502 at-bats. He enters free agency with a career .261/.330/.411 line along with 56 home runs and 284 RBI in 2,253 career at-bats.

Jed Lowrie exits after getting hit in foot
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(9/21/14) 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.
Athletics activate Jed Lowrie from DL; announce September callups
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/14) The Athletics announced several of roster moves prior to Monday's contest against the Mariners. The team activated shortstop Jed Lowrie from the disabled list. Additionally, they called up pitcher Fernando Rodriguez, catcher Bryan Anderson outfielder Billy Burns from Triple-A.
|Oh, so that's what all the hype was about. Jed Lowrie finally stayed healthy for a full season in 2013 -- playing not just 100 games for the first time, but 150 -- and the results were good enough to make him the fifth-best shortstop in Head-to-Head leagues and the seventh-best in Rotisserie. Despite playing half his games at one of the more pitcher-friendly venues in baseball, he clocked 15 home runs and was a doubles machine, contributing the third-most in all of baseball. He walked at a decent rate and never saw his batting average dip below .282. And hey, he's eligible at second base as well as shortstop. Unfortunately, he lost so many years to injuries that he's already on the verge of his 30th birthday, which is getting on up there for a middle infielder. Plus, some of his better attributes -- the doubles, the plate discipline -- are useless in Rotisserie leagues, giving him little room to regress in batting average. And of course, you never know when the injury bug will bite again. Because he probably maxed out his potential last year, you wouldn't want to reach for Lowrie on Draft Day, but as weak as shortstop is shaping up to be, he's a top-12 option there, if not at second base.
