Fantasy Impact: Lowrie is only a viable option right now in the deepest of fantasy leagues.

In a 7-1 win over the Giants, Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: The home run was only Lowrie's second of the year. After hitting over .300 in both April and May, he has cooled down a bit in June, hitting just .270 to go along with two home runs and four runs batted in. He's not a suggested option to go with right now in standard fantasy leagues, but he's definitely a viable option to go with in deep ones.

In a 4-2 loss to the Brewers, Jed Lowrie went 0-for-4 at the plate.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie is a solid fill-in middle infielder in standard fantasy leagues and a must-start in deep ones.

In a 4-0 loss to the Brewers on Wednesday, Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 at the plate.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie is still hitting .307 this season despite the 1-for-4 performance yesterday and is still an middle infielder most fantasy teams should consider starting if their roster is really thin at either the second base or shortstop position.

In Wednesday's 5-1 victory over Minnesota, Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie (who is now hitting .315 on the year) is definitely a must-start in deep fantasy leagues at the moment and is a viable option to go with right now in standard leagues too.

In a 13-3 loss to the Mariners, Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 at the plate.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie is a recommended option to go with in deep fantasy leagues and is definitely a sneaky player to consider going with in standard leagues right now. He's currently flying under the fantasy radar in most leagues and still not being owned in many of them, despite hitting a solid .308 right now in 120 at-bats this season.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie was shut down for a period, and it was unclear if he'd be able to return in the minimum, so this is good news for those considering Lowrie. However, even in a weak middle infield class that's been further weakened by injuries and suspensions, Lowrie isn't an especially attractive option.

The Athletics have placed 2B Jed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list. Lowrie remains on crutches due to his shin injury, and the team will shut him down for nine to 10 days before he resumes baseball-related activities. (Source: Susan Slusser on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie was a fringe fantasy asset, mainly due to the overall weak class of 2B. Prior to the injury, he was only posting an OPS south of .700. He's further limited by the offense around him and his home park. He could require a brief rehab stint once he's back to action, so he'll almost certainly require more than the 15-day minimum.

In a 7-3 loss to the Tigers on Thursday, Jed Lowrie collected two hits (one being a double), drew two walks and struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie is a solid option to go with in all fantasy leagues right now. He is currently sporting an impressive .325 batting average to go along with 12 runs batted in in 80 at-bats.

Jed Lowie went 2-for-4 on Thursday

Fri, Apr 22nd 8:22am EDT
By CD Hill

In a 7-3 win over the Yankees, Jed Lowrie finished with two hits, one run batted in and one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has a solid .286 batting average right now and while he should still only be recommended for deep fantasy leagues, he is someone to monitor over the the next few days to a week or so to see if he can maintain this level of success at the plate. If he can, consider him as a viable option in all fantasy leagues moving forward.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with two doubles, a RBI, and a run scored against the Mariners on Thursday. He also struckout once in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has shown flashes of potential, especially in his previous time with the A's in 2013 when he hit .290 with 15 homers, 80 R, and 75 RBI. The skills seem to be there for Lowrie to repeat that performance, but it is unlikely he will due to his inability to stay on the field. Lowrie has had 500 or more AB only twice in his career due to injuries, and simply cannot be counted on because of that. Take him as a flier in deep mixed or AL-Only leagues, as there is a bit of upside (especially since he'll earn 2B eligibility early in the season), but have a backup plan.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie was always a temporary fix for the 'Stros, as they awaited the arrival of potential superstar SS Carlos Correa. Injuries also played a role, as Lowrie was out for months with a torn ligament in his thumb, and was unable to regain his form afterward. Lowrie will likely be a starter for the A's, but his injury history makes him extremely risky to draft, so consider him a late-round flier with solid power upside.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-5 with a single, a RBI-double, and a strikeout against Oakland on Saturday. He also scored a run in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has been very streaky this season, from his high point in April (.300 avg/4 HR), to his pair of hitless streaks (0-26 in late Aug. & 0-17 in mid Sep.). Looking to next season, it seems like Lowrie's talent remains in the top-10 level for shortstops, and his dual eligibility (3B) will make him a solid option in next year's drafts. The issue will always be health with Lowrie, but you can get him in the later rounds, mitigating some of the risk.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-5 with a strikeout and a grand slam home run against the Twins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie made his one hit count, blasting his second homer in as many games, and his third in the last six. Lowrie should be active in all but the most shallow of formats, as he's got one of the best power/average combo bats among shortstops when healthy.

Category: , Game Recaps


Jed Lowrie went 1-for-3 with a walk, a strikeout, and a solo-HR against Minnesota on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie's hot streak continued on Saturday, as he hit his second homer in his last five games. Lowrie has been displaying the same high-level skill set that he showed back in April, and it bodes well for current fantasy owners, and as him being a likely top-tier SS draft option (that can be had late b/c of injury history) next fantasy season.

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-3 with two singles, a double, and two runs scored against the Twins on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has done a 180 since his hitless streak, going 8-for-14 (.571) with four doubles, four runs scored, and a home run over his last four games. AL-Only owners should activate Lowrie if they haven't already, as should deeper mixed league players. He's worth a waiver wire grab in all leagues.

Category: , Game Recaps


Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored against the Mariners on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Whatever funk Lowrie was in during his hitless streak seems to have vanished, as the shortstop now has two multi-hit games in his last three. Lowrie is a top-10 option at SS when he's on form, so keep that in mind as we head into the final stretch of the fantasy baseball season.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo homer against the Mariners on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: This is the version of Jed Lowrie that we were seeing back in April before his injury, with the batting eye to have multi-hit games, and the power to smash a home run. The homer snapped a 27-AB hitless streak, and the multi-hit effort was Lowrie's first since August 19th (the day before the streak began). Hopefully Lowrie can use this momentum to finish strong in September.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-4 with one strikeout against the Twins on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has went hitless in his last 22 AB, with only one walk in that span. The power-hitting shortstop has seen his average plummet since returning from the DL on July 30th, dropping from .300 to .225 after Friday's game. Lowrie only has one homer since his return, back on August 12th, and little else to go with it. He should be dropped in all but deep AL-Only leagues.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a solo-HR against the Giants on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: It was Lowrie's fifth homer of the season, but the first since April 27th, the last day he played before heading on the DL. This is what fantasy owners were hoping for in Lowrie's return, a good amount of pop to go with the solid average. This should be the start of a trend for the SS.

Category: , Game Recaps


Jed Lowrie went 1-for-2 with a RBI double, two walks, and a run scored against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie doesn't seem to have any ill effects from his time on the DL, as he's reached base three times in both of the last two games. If he can reclaim his power stroke then fantasy owners who kept Lowrie on a DL (or BE) slot will be rewarded handsomely for their patience.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with two singles, a walk, and a run scored on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't the flashiest of days for Lowrie, but it should encourage fantasy owners as he is showing little rust in the high-average department. Lowrie was on a tear in April, hitting nearly .300, to go with four homers, so if any of that can be repeated the rest of the way it will make for a big impact to anyone who held on to the shortstop.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie returned from the disabled list on Thursday, but he needed an extra game to get his first hit since coming back. Lowrie had been out since April 28th with an injury to his right thumb that required surgery. When healthy Lowrie is a top 10 SS, but with rookie stud Carlos Correa in the fold he will likely spend most of his time at 3B, a spot he has some familiarity with. Dual eligibility would be icing on the cake for Lowrie.

Jed Lowrie will has been placed on the 15-day disabled list and will undergo surgery on his right thumb to repair a ligament tear. He will be on the DL until after the All-Star Break at least. (Source: Astros.com)

Fantasy Impact: This is a huge blow to the Astros as well as fantasy owners. Lowrie was a top-5 option at the SS position so far this season, but his fantasy value takes a nosedive with this news. Lowrie should be held onto in AL-Only leagues, but in other formats (assuming you don't have a DL/BE slot to stash him in) you can consider dropping him if there are decent options on the waiver wire.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with a solo-HR and a double against the Padres on Monday. He also had one strikeout and a walk.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie was excellent on Monday, continuing his success early in this season, and it looks like the power is here to stay. However, in the short-term there is some bad news for Lowrie as he flew to Houston after the game with an injury to his thumb after sliding into home awkwardly. Lowrie will have a MRI to see if there is any serious damage.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-3 with two walks, a strikeout, and a run scored against the Athletics on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't the most impressive game for Lowrie, but he remained productive, something he's done almost every time out this season. Lowrie should be active in all fantasy formats as he is a top-six option at the SS position.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with a single and a double against the Athletics on Saturday. He also drew a walk, scored two runs, and had two RBI in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie was excellent on Saturday, and his batting average is just short of .300 (currently .296) after the multi-hit effort. Lowrie is sixth on the player rater at the SS position and should be in your starting lineup regardless of the fantasy format.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-5 with a single, a walk, and a run scored against the Athletics on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has found ways to be productive in almost every game so far this season. He and Springer scored the first runs of the game in the 10th inning on Friday, and it led to the eventual Astros win. Fantasy owners already know to keep Lowrie active in all formats.

Jed Lowrie went 3-for-3 with a double, two singles, and a walk against the Mariners on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: It was about as productive a day as anyone could hope for, and it comes as no surprise as Lowrie has been great to start the season. All that is left is to keep the power stroke going to ensure Lowrie stays a top-10 option at the SS position. Keep him in your lineup in all formats.

Jed Lowrie drew a walk in his lone AB as a pinch hitter against the Mariners on Tuesday. He also scored a run.

Fantasy Impact: Marwin Gonzalez got the start at SS, so Lowrie didn't make an appearance until the eighth inning as a pinch hitter. It was likely just a rest day for him as Lowrie has been great early this season. Keep Lowrie in your lineup in all fantasy formats.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-4 with two RBI singles against the Mariners on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie had been in a mini-slump, so it was great to see him have a productive game like this. Fantasy owners should have kept him active (and should continue to do so) as he has been a top-10 option at the SS position.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and a walk against the Angels on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has been in a mini-slump after his torrid start, but fantasy owners shouldn't be too worried as it's likely a blip on the radar. Lowrie remains a good source of power at the SS position, and someone who should stay in starting lineups in all fantasy formats.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts against the Angels on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: It was another off day for Lowrie as fantasy owners saw his average drop again, this time to .222. There is no reason Lowrie shouldn't remain in your lineup, however, as his power has been worth the tradeoff thus far.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-4 with a strikeout against the Angels on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Well you can't expect Lowrie to hit a home run every game. Lowrie's batting average did dip to .250 as a result of the 0-for, but that's just because of how few ABs have been had this early in the season. Keep him in your lineup in all formats.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with a 2-run homer and a RBI double against the A's on Wednesday. He also walked and struckout once.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie seemed to be due for a bounce back year, assuming he could stay healthy, but even so, few people expected him to rake like this. Lowrie is currently top-40 on the player rater, and his three HRs have him tied for 6th in the league in the early goings. All fantasy owners should keep him in their lineups going forward.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-3 with a single, a strikeout, and a HBP against the Athletics on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie wasn't any worse for wear after getting plunked, which was a welcome sign for Houston fans as well as fantasy owners. Lowrie should be kept in lineups in all formats as he's been pretty productive early in the season (especially with the two HRs).

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-5 with a single and a walk against the Rangers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It wasn't the flashiest of days for the shortstop, but Lowrie was at least respectable in leagues that factor in walks. He's not going to hit the cover off the ball every day, but he'll hit well enough (with the occasional HR) to warrant staying in your lineup.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-4 with a walk and three strikeouts against the Rangers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie cooled off a bit after having a homer in back-to-back games, but it isn't a cause for any concern for fantasy owners. He should be kept in all lineups going forward.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a solo-HR against the Rangers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Home runs in back-to-back games show that Lowrie's comeback year is in full swing. Health is the only concern with him, but he's in good shape right now. Hopefully Lowrie's power stroke continues, but regardless he should be kept in fantasy lineups in all formats.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-4 with a home run against the Indians on Thursday. The home run came in the ninth inning and ended a combined no-hit bid by the Indians.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie's homer was the only hit by the Astros on the day, and it had Cleveland RP Nick Hagadone nearly collapse in disappointment as it blew the combined no-hit bid in the ninth with one out. For Lowrie and his fantasy owners it was great to see him get his power swing going, especially heading over to Global Life Park to face the Rangers in the next series. Keep him in your lineup going forward and enjoy the rewards.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with two singles against the Indians on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: The hits weren't amazing, but Lowrie was the only Astros batter to have a multi-hit day against Carrasco. If Lowrie can handle the likes of him then look for those singles to turn into doubles (or even HRs) going forward against inferior SPs. Keep him in your lineup in all formats.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-2 with a walk against the Indians on Opening Day. He also scored a run.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie scored an insurance run after drawing a walk in the eighth inning. He's been showing quite a bit of patience at the plate as of late, something the K-heavy Astros desperately need in their lineup. Fantasy owners should keep Lowrie in their lineups as well, and look for him to potentially hit a HR against SPs like Bauer, Gallardo, and Lewis in the current and upcoming series, both of which are in hitters parks.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-1 with a walk against the Royals on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a short outing for Lowrie, but a decent one as he flied out in the 2nd and walked in the 5th. Lowrie is healthy and as long as that is the case he should be in most lineups, especially at the MI spot. Look for him to potentially get his power going with the first two series of the year being at hitters parks (Minute Maid & Global Life).

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-3 with a double and two strikeouts against the Royals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a mixed day for Lowrie, as he had a nice double in his first AB, but then followed with two strikeouts. The biggest thing with Lowrie is he's healthy, and as long as that's the case he can provide a bit of pop to your lineup at SS or MI. Grab him off the waiver wire if he's available in mixed leagues, especially if your drafted SS won't be ready for Opening Day (like J.J. Hardy).

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with a single, walk, and a HR against the Braves on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie hit his first homer of the spring, and it seems increasingly likely that a bounceback season is in order. Lowrie is a top-10 SS in fantasy when healthy, and you can get him late in drafts because he is often overlooked. Take him if you want to wait on SS and need a little pop.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-2 with a double against the Yankees on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie was one of the few Astros that were able to get solid contact against Nathan Eovaldi of the Yankees. He's been hitting well all spring, and a bounceback season seems likely. Lowrie is a top-10 SS in fantasy as long as he's healthy.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-3 with a single against the Mets on Tuesday.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with two singles, one RBI, and a run scored against the Pirates. He also struckout once.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie is showing signs of being back to 2013 form, and if that is the case he can be a top-10 SS in fantasy as long as he stays healthy. Lowrie has some good pop for a SS (10-15 HRs), and because he is a switch hitter he is going to be a tough out all season long, scoring runs often in the power-packed Astros lineup. Draft him in the middle-to-late rounds in mixed leagues if you want to wait on the position.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-2 with a strikeout against the Nationals on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie, like most of the Astros, struggled against Max Scherzer on Friday. However, he has been good this spring, and as long as he stays healthy he is primed for a bounceback year. Look for him in all formats as he is a top-10 SS with a bit of pop.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-3 with a single against the Mets on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie has been consistently solid so far this spring, and will be the starting shortstop for the Astros. As long as he is healthy Lowrie provides a decent amount of pop (10-15 HRs) at the SS position, with a good average, and should have nice Rs and RBIs in the power-packed Houston lineup. Lowrie is a top-10 SS that goes late in drafts, so grab him if you wait on the position.

Jed Lowrie went 0-for-2 with two flyouts against the Nationals on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie finally cooled down on Sunday after having been great all Spring, but his average remains over .350 so there is nothing to worry about.

Jed Lowrie went 1-for-3 (the lone hit being a single) on Thursday against the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact: Lowrie had a decent day at the plate, but did groundout for the final out in the 5th inning with the bases loaded. He is locked in as the shortstop for Houston this season, and will look to stay healthy, and to get back to his 2013 form. Lowrie provides a decent amount of HR pop at the SS position, and should be a consideration in mid-to-late rounds in mixed leagues.

Jed Lowrie went 2-for-3 with two doubles (including one that went off the outfield wall), and scored a run against the Cardinals. He also struck out once.

Jed Lowrie was held hitless in two plate appearances Sunday against the Braves. Atlanta used eight pitchers to no-hit the Astros as a team in a 2-2 10 inning tie.

Fantasy Impact: Jed Lowrie was brought in this offseason to be the Astros everyday shortstop. After a sub-par 2014 season, Lowrie is looking to return to his 2013 form that saw him smack 15 HRs with 75 RBI. With the shortstop position lacking fantasy stars, Lowrie can be a top ten SS that is drafted in the later rounds in most formats.
