Hitters to start in Week 18


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/27/2014) Need a sleeper hitter for Fantasy Week 18 (July 28-Aug. 3)? You won't find one much better than Austin Jackson. Of course, he's not the only "start" for the week. Stephen Vogt, Mike Napoli, Emilio Bonifacio, Chase Headley and Jed Lowrie also fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Jed Lowrie goes deep


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie cracked his fifth homer in Wednesday's 9-7 win over the Astros. Lowrie's second-inning solo shot gave him 39 RBI this season. He's hitting .238/.318/.351 in 353 at-bats.

Hitters to start in Week 17


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/20/2014) Looking for a sleeper for Fantasy Week 17 (July 21-27)? You might want to give a second look to Kurt Suzuki, Mark Teixeira, Scooter Gennett, Conor Gillaspie, Jed Lowrie and Corey Dickerson.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Jed Lowrie carrying nine-game hit streak into second half


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie ended the first half on a nine-game hitting streak. Lowrie is batting .429 (15 for 35) with three RBI, four doubles and seven runs during the hitting streak.

Lowrie's batting average has risen from .217 to .239 over his last nine games. Unfortunately, Lowrie has been mired in a long power drought, as he's gone without a home run in 36 games.

In his career, Lowrie has a .257 average, .324 on-base percentage, .431 slugging percentage and .755 OPS in the second half. Though, last season he had one of his best post-All-Star-break performances. Lowrie hit .284 with a .475 slugging percentage, .793 OPS, two triples, eight home runs, 22 doubles, 38 RBI and 39 runs in 65 games.


Jed Lowrie sets career mark


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie has produced a career-high five straight multi-hit games. He's gone 2 for 4 in each, raising his average to .234. In that span, Lowrie has scored five runs and driven in two.

Despite his poor average, Lowrie's 23.7 percent line-drive rate is his best since his rookie year, notes MLB.com.

"Literally everything is exactly the same, except the hits weren't falling," Lowrie said before Wednesday's game. "It still is a head-scratcher."


Jed Lowrie stringing together multi-hit games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie collected two singles in four at-bats and scored once during a 6-1 win Tuesday vs. San Francisco. It was Lowrie's fourth straight two-hit game.

Although Lowrie hasn't homered in 31 games, he is batting .326 in his last 11 games, raising his season average from .215 to .231. He has four doubles, six RBI and eight runs in his last 11 games.


Hitters to sit in Week 15


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/6/2014) Thinking about starting Derek Norris, Steve Pearce, Josh Harrison, Nick Castellanos, Jed Lowrie or Austin Jackson in Fantasy Week 15 (July 7-13)? You might want to think again.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Jed Lowrie's struggles continue


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie is hitting .117 (7 for 60) with seven walks and 16 strikeouts in his past 15 games, notes ESPN.com. Lowrie's season average has plummeted to .220/.319/.333 in 264 at-bats.

Jed Lowrie a victim of bad luck


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Many Fantasy owners have been faced with the dilemma recently whether or not to hold onto Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie or potentially let him go to pick up players like Twins shortstop Danny Santana or Tigers shortstop Eugenio Suarez.

While I'm definitely buying into Suarez and starting to warm up to Santana being more than just a flash in the pan, I'm still against Fantasy owners dropping Lowrie, as I wrote earlier this week in Waiver Wire.

I understand Lowrie has been struggling for a long time. He's batting just .144 in his last 27 games and isn't showing signs of emerging from his slump. But honestly, it looks like Lowrie has been a victim of bad luck. He has just a .242 BABIP, which is well below his career average (.288) and the league average (.298, per FanGraphs.com). You then look at his contact rate, which is at a career-high 89.3 percent, and his swinging strike rate, which is at a career-low 4.9 percent, and nothing really looks out of whack.

If Lowrie wasn't making as much contact, then there would be some cause for concern. But since the contact rate isn't low, it just looks like the hits aren't falling or finding the holes for Lowrie.


Hitters to sit in Week 11


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/7/2014) Have your heart set on starting Derek Norris, Garrett Jones, Jed Lowrie, Josh Harrison, Jhonny Peralta or Oscar Taveras in Fantasy Week 11 (June 9-15)? You might want to think twice about that.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie homered and drove in two runs in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Angels. Lowrie's solo blast to right, his fourth homer this season, traveled 388 feet. He's hitting .245 with 22 RBI.

Jed Lowrie back in lineup Friday for Athletics


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie is set to start Friday against the Angels after being absent from the starting lineup Thursday with a neck ailment that has plagued him for a while.

The injury could be messing with his swing. Lowrie has been slumping since mid-May. He has just three singles in his last 29 at-bats as his average has fallen from .266 to .241 and slugging percentage has dropped from .411 to .369.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Jed Lowrie out Saturday, should return Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2014) Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie was out of the lineup yet again Saturday, as his lingering neck injury continues to trouble him.

Lowrie was sidelined for the third time in a week due to neck soreness, though he should be back in the lineup Sunday. The switch-hitter feels more pain when hitting from the left side, so he should be able to play against a lefty Sunday in the series finale, according to MLB.com.

"The best thing to do for me is to let him get a day off," said manager Bob Melvin, "and then have him on the field for the game tomorrow against the lefty [J.A. Happ]."

Lowrie is available off the bench.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
