Astros | Jed Lowrie returns from disabled list

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:03:10 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (finger) is back in the lineup Thursday, July 30, batting fifth versus Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Matt Shoemaker.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) hasn't played since late April, so this is a notable boost for the Astros lineup. It will be interesting to see how his playing time is handled, as his return could also decrease the playing time for Luis Valbuena and Chris Carter. Lowrie has always been injury-prone, but when he's healthy and in rhythm, he's a capable hitter. In the beginning, though, it's probably best to just monitor his progress and see if he's returning to form.

Astros | Jed Lowrie to return Thursday

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 21:21:22 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) is set to come off the 15-day disabled list Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is expected to serve as the starting third baseman with Carlos Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) likely to be a permanent fixture at shortstop for many years to come.

Astros | Jed Lowrie hitless in rehab game

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 22:40:50 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) was hitless in two at-bats during a minor-league rehab game with Class AA Corpus Christi Wednesday, July 22. It was his first rehab game. The team expects him to play several games in the minors before he is activated.

Fantasy Tip: When Lowrie ($3,300; or 6.6% of cap) returns he is expected to play some third base and shortstop, spelling rookie Carlos Correa ($5,100; or 10.2% of cap).

Astros | Jed Lowrie playing third base at Class AA

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 16:03:39 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) is playing third base for Class AA Corpus Christi Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: With Carlos Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) locked into the everyday shortstop role, it makes sense to move Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to third, especially with Luis Valbuena ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) hitting just .205 with a .287 on-base percentage. Still, fantasy owners can expect Lowrie to be eased in, and Valbuena has 19 home runs, so he isn't going to be relegated to a full-time bench role, likely.

Astros | Jed Lowrie to begin rehab stint

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 22:37:43 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Class AA Corpus Christi Wednesday, July 22. He hasn't played since April 27 due to a torn ligament in his thumb. He will need several games in the minors before returning to the team.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie is expected to see time at both shortstop and third base when he returns, as Carlos Correa ($5,100; or 10.2% of cap) has taken over the starting shortstop duties.

Astros | Jed Lowrie wants to play rehab games

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 13:32:19 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) said he would like to play in a few rehab games next week.

Fantasy Tip: Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) probably is a few weeks away from returning to the team, so owners should continue to monitor his progress. Lowrie probably will see playing time at third base and designated hitter when he returns and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore.

Astros | Jed Lowrie takes BP

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 05:30:30 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) took batting practice Thursday, July 16, for the first time since thumb surgery.

Fantasy Tip: He needs a bit more time before beginning a rehab assignment. Lowrie will have to slot in at third base and DH when he comes back because Carlos Correa is playing so well. Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) will be an excellent low-end SS on FantasyScore when he returns.

Astros | Luis Valbuena could move across diamond

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 17:08:39 -0700

Houston Astros 3B Luis Valbuena has taken ground balls at first base recently and could be moved across the diamond to first base when SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) returns from injury. 1B Chris Carter hasn't gotten going in the first half and 1B Jon Singleton hasn't replicated his success in the minors to the major leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Valbuena ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has 19 home runs and is an excellent source of power for home run-starved fantasy teams, but he's hitting just .199 (57-for-286) on the season. A move across the diamond could help him add dual-position eligibility, though, which would make him a little more attractive to owners. Don't forget about Lowrie ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) in deep mixed and AL-only leagues as he nears a return.

Astros | Jed Lowrie rehab update

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 19:30:10 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) is fielding grounders and "swinging at an intensity of 60 to 70 percent," according to manager A.J. Hinch.

Fantasy Tip: No timetable has been established for Lowrie's ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) return, although it is likely that he will be used at other positions due to the emergence of Carlos Correa ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) at shortstop.

Astros | No return date yet for Jed Lowrie

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 18:02:53 -0700

Houston Astros SS Jed Lowrie (thumb) continues to build up hand strength as he makes his way back from thumb surgery. It has been 10 weeks since he tore a ligament in his right thumb, and he is making slow and steady progress. Still, he needs to clear several hurdles before he can go out on a minor-league rehab assignment. He has been taking batting practice in the cage on flips and fielding grounders once per week.

Fantasy Tip: There is no timetable for his return, and it will be interesting to see how he slots in with Carlos Correa ($5,100; or 10.2% of cap) now a prominent fixture in the picture. Lowrie might see time at third base and designated hitter, as well as spelling Correa at short on occasion.
