Oakland Athletics designate Jed Lowrie for assignment during woeful 2022 season

The Oakland Athletics made a few roster moves prior to their game Wednesday. Among them, veteran infielder Jed Lowrie was designated for assignment. This means a team could claim Lowrie on waivers, he could accept an assignment to the minors (if he goes unclaimed) or he could be outright released here within the next seven days.

Oakland A’s start cutting dead weight with Jed Lowrie

It was a matter of time before the Oakland A’s started getting rid of some unnecessary veteran pieces. Jed Lowrie is the first to go. The A’s made a series of moves on Wednesday as they look to see what they have with some of their younger players. JP Sears and Cal Stevenson are headed to the majors. To make room on the roster, Paul Blackburn is heading to the Injured List and Lowrie was designated for assignment.

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Designated for assignment

Lowrie was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Wednesday. Lowrie wasn't in the lineup for the last two games, and he'll lose his spot on the 40-man roster after slashing just .180/.245/.263 with three home runs, 16 RBI, 14 runs and a stolen base over 50 games with the Athletics this year. It wouldn't be surprising to see the 38-year-old become a free agent if he goes unclaimed on waivers. Seth Brown should see increased playing time as the Athletics' designated hitter.

An Ode to Jed Lowrie

A while back, around the start of the 2021 MLB season, I wrote an article about one Mr. Jed Lowrie, who the A's had just signed for his 3rd tour of the A's, a tour that has now reached it's end. That end, a rather unceremonious DFA, was, in all honesty, well deserved. A .180/.245/.263 with a WRC+ of 49 (100 is league average, for reference) is not very good, to say the least. That aside however, Zombie Jed Lowrie did prove to be real (at least last year; the half-life of zombies might be shorter than once thought), but that aside, he has done very well over the years and has played some of his best baseball as an Oakland Athletic while being the consummate professional on and off the field. Even aside from that, on a personal note, he was one of my favorite A's players, so it is sad to see that the end is nigh.

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Left out of Monday's lineup

Lowrie is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels. Lowrie is just 2-for-16 (.125) since being activated from the injured list last week, so he will get a mental break Monday. Stephen Piscotty will serve as Oakland's designated hitter instead.

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Singles in return from IL

Lowrie (shoulder), activated from the injured list earlier in the day, served as the designated hitter and went 1-for-4 in a loss to the Angels on Tuesday. Lowrie was logging his first game action since June 26, and it was naturally a nice plus that he was able to not only suit up, but hit safely right out of the gate. However, Lowrie's .187 average and .522 OPS, as well as his middling 85.8 mph exit velocity and career-low 17.8 percent line-drive rate, all support the notion that he's likely lost some bat speed and power in his age-38 season.

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Returns from injured list

Lowrie (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday, Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Lowrie wound up missing slightly more than a month with a left shoulder injury, but he's ready to go after grabbing six hits (including a pair of homers) in five rehab games. The Athletics don't have much incentive to give a ton of at-bats to a 38-year-old on an expiring deal down the stretch, however, so it's unclear how often he'll be in the lineup going forward.

Athletics' Jed Lowrie: Stellar night for Las Vegas

Lowrie (shoulder) started at first base in Triple-A Las Vegas' win over Albuquerque on Saturday and went 4-for-5 with a solo home run, a two-run shot and four total runs. Lowrie played nearly a full game and seemed to have rediscovered his stroke at the plate following a 1-for-11 showing over his first three rehab contests. Lowrie's extended stint on defense was also a good sign for his previously injured shoulder, and it remains to be seen if the Athletics feel he's shown enough to be deemed ready for activation to open the week.
