News: Lowrie (finger) was officially placed on the 15-day DL Friday. Impact: This was the expectation all along, as Lowrie has been diagnosed with a hairline fracture in his finger. Despite playing through the injury of late, it's now expected to cost the shortstop two-to-three weeks of action. Infielder Andy Parrino was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to take his place on the 25-man roster.(RotoWire, )

News: The Oakland Athletics placed Lowrie on the 15-day disabled list after a 7-3 loss Thursday to the Kansas City Royals with a hairline fracture of his right index finger. Impact: Lowrie suffered the injury on Aug. 4 and attempted to play through the pain. He is hitting .238 with five home runs and 42 RBIs in 110 games, including starting 103 at shortstop. He hit .308 with 10 multi-hit games in his past 29 games.(STATS, 6:53pm)

News: Lowrie will land on the 15-day DL due to a hairline fracture in his finger, and is expected to miss two-to-three weeks as a result of the injury, Joe Stiglich of CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Lowrie had been playing through the injury since suffering it while fielding a grounder Aug. 4, so the DL move does come as something of a surprise at this time. The shortstop reportedly told the Athletics he was content with playing through the injury, but the team advised him to reconsider after he failed to show improvement over the last couple of days. It doesn't sound like surgery is in the cards for Lowrie, but his injury for any length of time hurts an Athletics squad that is short on talent up the middle. Andy Parrino is expected to receive the call-up from Triple-A Sacramento to take Lowrie's spot on the active roster.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) expects to be placed on the 15-day DL, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: Lowrie has been hampered by a fractured finger of late, but was still able to go 1-for-3 at the plate in Wednesday's start. He says he isn't helping the team much in his current state, and the disabled list now seems like the most probably course of action. Look for Eric Sogard or Nick Punto to be his primary replacements at shortstop, while Alberto Callaspo may be in line for extra work at the keystone.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (hand) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Royals. Impact: Lowrie is dealing with a fractured right index finger, but has said that he'll play through the injury. While he started Wednesday's game, Lowrie will concede shortstop duties to to Eric Sogard on Thursday. Sogard will bat ninth against Kansas City starter James Shields.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie is out of the lineup Tuesday at Kansas City, Susan Slusser of San Francisco Chronicle reports. Impact: The absence marks Lowrie's second in a three-game span, which is notable considering he missed two outings last week due to a bruised finger. Since his return to the lineup, he's managed just one hit, a triple, with no counting stats in 12 at-bats. In his place, Eric Sogard will slide over to shortstop, while Alberto Callaspo covers second base.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie was diagnosed with a fractured right index finger Tuesday, but he intends to continue to play through the injury, the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser reports. Impact: He was out of Tuesday's lineup -- the second time in three games he's been on the bench -- and this explains why. It's anyone's guess how he can play through a broken index finger on his throwing hand, but that appears to be the current plan. However, we wouldn't expect him to be in the lineup every day, as it would seem prudent to rest him when possible. Eric Sogard is playing third base and batting ninth for the A's Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins. Impact: Lowrie will take a seat after starting the previous two games following a finger injury that sidelined him for two games. Eric Sogard will start at shortstop and bat ninth for the Athletics.(RotoWire, )

News: Lowrie (finger) appeared as a pinch-hitter Thursday and could return to the starting lineup Friday, the Associated Press reports. Impact: After sitting Tuesday and Wednesday because of the injury, it's an encouraging sign that Lowrie was used off the bench Thursday. If he's able to return to the lineup, Eric Sogard will likely sit Friday after starting at short in Lowrie's place.(RotoWire, )
