(7/29/2015) Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a thumb inury, could return during his team's current homestand, according to the Houston Chronicle.

“We’ll get one more game in before we get the brains together and figure out what’s the next step for him,” manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday afternoon. “I’m happy with his progress. Talked to him this morning, he was really happy with some of the action he’s gotten at third, some of the at-bats he’s taken. We’re still hopeful that at the end of this homestand or very quickly, we’ll have a chance to maybe get him back.”

Lowrie has played five minor-league rehab games as he continues to work his way back to a return to the Astros.

(7/24/2015) Astros rehabbing third baseman Jed Lowrie had an encouraging night at the plate Friday with two hits, including a double, for Double-A Corpus Christi, per MLB.com.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Astros infielder Jed Lowrie, who launched his rehab assignment Wednesday night and was hitless in two at-bats after losing nearly three months to a thumb injury, appears destined to make a switch from shortstop to third base upon his return to Houston.

Young standout Carlos Correa has established himself as the starting shortstop, but third baseman Luis Valbuena has struggled despite a power surge. Lowrie would likely take over as the starter at that position.

"It's been a while, but I've felt comfortable at third when I played there," he said.

Lowrie, who last played third base for Boston in 2011, was off to a strong start before going down. He will return with a slash line of .262/.333/.416 and four home runs in 60 at-bats.

Lowrie has been out for the last 10 weeks after he tore a ligament in his right thumb which required surgery. His next step is to take a full round of batting practice.

"When he's ready to go out and play, we'll have a game plan for him as he gets into games," manager A.J. Hinch said. "I talk to him every day in some capacity. We've really haven't gotten too specific. He's taken ground balls at short and third. He's watching and he understands. He's played just about everywhere in his career, but having a definitive plan -- until we put a calendar in front of him where he's going to go, [Double-A] Corpus [Christi] or [Triple-A] Fresno, it's nothing that we're discussing."
