A's shortstop Jed Lowrie leaves game versus Indians with neck injury

A's Lowrie irks Astros during blowout

Smart, Talented Jed Lowrie Turns 30 Today

Lowrie With SoxI once had the opportunity to speak with Jed Lowrie and ask him if it was true that he hit the first home run ever at New York's Citi Field. With a smile, he corrected me on two counts: first, it was pre-season (April 4, 2009) and second, it was a grand slam. Lowrie is one of those players who brings dignity and class to a major league uniform. A graduate of Stanford...

The Oakland Athletics: To trade or not to trade?

With the trade deadline quickly approaching, the Oakland Athletics have been pretty quiet. As of now, the Athletics lineup looks pretty solid. The A’s have been both great offensively and defensively this season, which has allowed them to take a two game lead in the AL West before the All-Star break. It is definitely not necessary for the Athletics to partake in a trade this year...

Jed Lowrie On Injuries and The Real Jed Lowrie

Jed Lowrie has played for three organizations already, despite having accrued little more than two full seasons worth of Major League plate appearances. That might be because the oft-injured 29-year-old has never had so much as 400 plate appearances in a given season since his major league debut in 2008. Through it all, he’s been trying to shake off those injuries and prove himself...

Are the Houston Astros an embarrassment to MLB?

After yesterday's trade of Jed Lowrie to the Athletics, a new narrative is popping up around the Houston Astros by some mainstream writers: the team is an embarrassment that makes the A's and Marlins look like big spenders.

Past injuries won't slow Lowrie down

Five years ago, Jed Lowrie was considered among the top prospects in the Red Sox organization. Lowrie did not rank far behind names like Jacoby Ellsbury and Justin Masterson. But since Lowrie got his chance with the Red Sox in 2008, he has been unable to remain healthy for a complete season. There was a wrist injury, a shoulder problem and mononucleosis. So in his four seasons...
