Jed Lowrie agrees to three-year, $23 million deal with Astros
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) The Astros announced Monday they signed infielder Jed Lowrie to a three-year contract. Lowrie is guaranteed to make $23 million, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Lowrie will make $8 million in 2015, $7.5 million in 2016 and $6.5 million in 2017, according to Heyman. The team has a $6 million option for 2018, which includes a $1 million buyout.
The deal runs through 2017 and includes a team option for 2018. Lowrie is back for his second stint with Houston after batting .244 with a career-high 16 home runs, 18 doubles and 42 RBI in 97 games for the Astros in 2012.
Lowrie has a career .261/.330/.411/.741 slash line in seven MLB seasons. He has a .279/.370/.505/.875 slash line in 61 games at Minute Maid Park. He also has 11 home runs, 15 doubles and 31 RBI.
Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Lowrie will play at shortstop, per MLB.com.

|(12/10/14) Free-agent infielder Jed Lowrie is talking to multiple teams, including the Astros, according to FoxSports.com.
The 30-year-old Lowrie hit .249/.321/.355 over 502 at-bats last season. Houston has reportedly been interested in bringing back Lowrie for some time. Lowrie was a member of the club in 2012 before being dealt to Oakland prior to the 2013 season.
Report: Astros interested in bringing back SS Jed Lowrie
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/8/14) The Astros have expressed interest in signing free agent shortstop Jed Lowrie this offseason, the Houston Chronicle reports. After posting back-to-back seasons of 15-plus home runs (one of which came with Houston in 2012), Lowrie hit only six out of the park in 2014. He slashed .249/.321/.355 over 502 at-bats for the A's last season.
Athletics do not extend qualifying offer to shortstop Jed Lowrie
|(11/4/14) With the Athletics bypassing a qualifying offer to infielder Jed Lowrie, he is now free to sign with any team.
By not extending the offer, the Athletics will not receive draft pick compensation if Lowrie signs with another team.
The shortstop hit .249 with six home runs and 50 RBI in 2014.
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.

|2014 summary: In 2013, Jed Lowrie became a doubles machine on the way to hitting a career-high .290, but last season, two-baggers were in shorter supply for the Athletics' shortstop. Lowrie reverted to a .249 batting average with 29 doubles, putting him on a pace that was more typical of his pre-2013 work, and his home run power all but dried up. Though Lowrie produced only six home runs all season long, he was roughly on a 40-doubles pace until he fractured his finger in August. In December, the Astros plucked Lowrie off the free agent market with a three-year deal.|
Playing time status: Lowrie will be the Astros' starting shortstop, presumably keeping the seat warm until top prospect Carlos Correa is ready to take over.
2015 outlook: Though there is at least a remote possibility that Lowrie could give way to Correa late this season, owners should count on getting something close to a full season's worth of at-bats from the former Athletic. Lowrie has come full circle, having played for the Astros before going to the A's, and that 2012 season in Houston was his best power year with 16 home runs in 97 games. The potential for a power resurgence makes Lowrie a viable late-round pick for standard mixed league owners.
