JED LOWRIE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Two Versions of Jed Lowrie

Major League Baseball interrupts this Thanksgiving holiday week to announce that Jed Lowrie has been traded from the Astros to the A’s in exchange for minor-league reliever Brendan McCurry. Perhaps it’s a move you find a little strange — Lowrie is in his 30s, and he’s due real money for at least another couple years. He’s going from one team with a very low payroll to another...

The Oakland A’s reacquire Jed Lowrie

Jed Lowrie can’t escape the Oakland A’s. The A’s have reacquired the shortstop from the Houston Astros in an one-for-one deal in exchange for minor league pitcher Brendan McCurry. It marks a return to the organization for the 31-year-old, who last played with the club for two seasons in 2013 and 2014. On the surface, the move makes sense for both teams.

Oakland A’s free agent rumors: Emilio Bonifacio

Emilio Bonifacio The Oakland A’s are in need of a quality middle infielder. Preferably one that can play shortstop since the likelihood of Jed Lowrie returning is slim.
