Lowrie draws bases-loaded walk in 10th to lift A's over Mariners

  With his team mired in a tough stretch, Oakland manager Bob Melvin was worried about missed opportunities — especially when a pitch in the dirt with the bases loaded in the 10th inning didn't scoot far enough to get a runner home. ''I think the umpire blocked one pitch for us that might have been a run,'' Melvin said. ''So now you're thinking...

The Oakland A’s infield weaknesses

The Oakland A’s seem to be back on track in this series against the Los Angeles Angels. Their pitching has been on point and their offense has picked back up. However, there is still one weakness that has never been resolved. Even though they tried to strengthen these positions before the trade deadline, second base and shortstop remain the weakest positions for the Oakland A...

A’s place Jed Lowrie on DL with fractured finger

Jed Lowrie initially wanted to play through his fractured right index finger, but the Oakland Athletics have changed that. The A’s announced on Thursday that they have placed their shortstop on the disabled list. Lowrie suffered the fracture last week when he took a hard ground ball off his finger. Since sustaining the injury, Lowrie […]

Athletics Injury Update: Jed Lowrie expects to hit DL

Oakland Athletics shortstop Jed Lowrie appears to be headed to the disabled list with a fractured finger. As I reported last week, Lowrie bruised his finger on a ground ball in the fourth inning of the A’s game last Monday, August 4th.  As reported by Sports Injury Alert yesterday, Lowrie had hoped to play through the injury but a move seems likely after today’s game to put...

Athletics Injury Update: Jed Lowrie to play with fractured finger

The Oakland A's hammered the Kansas City Royals last night by the score of 11-3. The win improved the A's to 73-46, first in the American League West. Josh Donaldson homered twice and Brandon Moss had four hits to lead a 20-hit attack. The A's played without Jed Lowrie, who has missed four of the last eight games with a finger injury. It appears that Lowrie plans...

Jed Lowrie's finger injury improving

Jed Lowrie remained out of Oakland's lineup for a second game in a row with a bruised right index finger, but there is an excellent chance the shortstop will be back in action Thursday against the Twins. Lowrie said Wednesday that the swelling has subsided substantially and he planned to do a little light throwing before the A's day game. Lowrie could have pinch-hit - but...

MLB trade rumors: Oakland A’s edition

With the offseason upon us, the MLB rumors start to flow freely – even for small market teams like the Oakland A’s. Even though these first few weeks of the offseason have not been particularly busy for the Athletics, the rumors still exist since there are still many deals to be made. The first major rumor that has been big news lately is that the St. Louis Cardinals have their...

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...

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. Much is being made about Houston's payroll in 2013, which will likely end up around $25 million on Opening Day. But because the team isn't spending...

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...
