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 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,'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, )
Fri. Aug 15, 2014
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)
