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 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.
