News: Lowrie (finger) was activated from the disabled list Monday and is in the lineup against the Mariners. Impact: Lowrie was expected to rejoin the Athletics when the rosters expanded, and that is the case. He was able to play a full game Sunday, but was held off the roster until September. Lowrie will man his usual spot at shortstop Monday and bat sixth for the Athletics.(RotoWire, )

News: The A's plan to activate Lowrie on Monday before their game against the Mariners. Impact: Lowrie was able to play a full game on Sunday. As bad as his season has been, he's better than their alternatives at shortstop. "He's a key part of our club, a two-way shortstop guy that's an everyday player for us, a switch-hitter who's a run producer," said manager Bob Melvin. "You've seen that over the last couple of years. So there are certain guys that you miss more so than others, he is one of those guys that's an important cog for us, so it'll be nice to get him back."(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) was sent to Triple-A Sacramento on a rehab assignment Friday and may return Tuesday, John Hickey of the Bay Area News Group reports. Impact: Lowrie was placed on the disabled list Aug. 15 with the injury, but appears to be on track for a Tuesday return when the rosters expand. He should take back his spot as the everyday starter when he returns.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) took batting practice on the field Thursday for the first time since landing on the DL, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Lowrie's progress is certainly encouraging, and if the session goes well, he could be cleared to begin a rehab assignment as early as Saturday. There remains a chance that he could return to provide fantasy owners with nearly a month of consistent playing time as the A's continue to fight for a division title.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) could head out on a rehab assignment this weekend, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. Impact: With Lowrie's finger holding up to two-handed swings in the cages, the A's will return the 30-year-old to on-field batting practice Thursday. If all goes well, there's a chance Lowrie could begin a rehab assignment this weekend, with a return to the big club for Monday's series opener against Seattle at least within the realm of possibility.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) is slated to take batting practice Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Lowrie progressed to taking two-handed swings in the cages Wednesday, and will take what figures to be his final step before embarking on a rehab assignment Thursday with on-field batting practice. Still just a couple weeks removed from suffering a hairline fracture to his finger, Lowrie threw Tuesday and it reportedly went "fairly well." Barring a setback, he will likely return to the A's when rosters expand or shortly thereafter.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) is slated to play catch Tuesday, and if all goes well, he may embark upon rehab games later this week, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Lowrie has reported improvement in his fractured right index finger lately, but playing catch would mark one of the final hurdles to surpass before a return to the bigs is considered. His presence on the Athletics would be a welcome addition over the unpalatable offensive options, Eric Sogard and Andy Parrino, that have been utilized at shortstop during Lowrie's absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) hopes to begin throwing in a few days, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Lowrie has reported some improvement in his fractured finger over the last couple of days, potentially signaling that a return from the DL may not be far off. The Athletics have inquired about trading for the Rays' Yunel Escobar before the Aug. 31 waiver deadline, but if Lowrie exhibits notable improvement in the next day or two, the team may not need to make another acquisition to stabilize the middle infield.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) was taking grounders before Saturday's game but is still not making throws, MLB.com's Jane Lee reports. Impact: Lowrie will be eligible to come off the DL at the end of the month, but the fact that he still can't throw the ball suggests that might be a long shot. In the meantime, Andy Parrino and Eric Sogard will continue to split time at shortstop, but neither is much of a fantasy option.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie went 2 for 4 and scored a run in his return from the disabled list Monday, a 6-1 win over Seattle. Impact: The Oakland shortstop, now batting .241, hadn't played since Aug. 14. He fractured his right index finger Aug. 4 and attempted to play through the pain.(STATS, 6:53pm)
