M*A*S*H Unit Gains a Shortstop
Add Jed Lowrie to the walking wounded. The shortstop, who has been sharing the position with Jed Lowrie, had to leave Thursday’s game in the bottom of the fourth inning with what the club described as an “irritated left forearm”.
I’m not sure yet if that is of any relation to Lowrie’s left wrist, which was surgically repaired in April.
Lowrie has not been hitting at all since he returned from the disabled list the second game after the All-Star break.
Overall this season, Lowrie is hitting .143. He has 17 strikeouts in 56 at-bats.
