New Arrival: Jed Lowrie, if, Oakland

IMG_0014

Jed Lowrie was traded from Houston to Oakland this season, with Houston getting Chris Carter, Brad Peacock and Max Stassi. I was pretty happy with the trade; I always thought that Lowrie was super underrated, and just needed some real playing time to put up decent numbers. The players that the A’s gave away were all prospects, but ones that had lost some of their sheen. Of the group Peacock was my favorite, but even he was not as sure as a bet as he looked in 2011.

Lowrie would get over 600 at bats, and hit .290 with a .344 OBP. He would hit 15 HR, with a .791 OPS and +122 OPS+. He would be one of the better middle infielders in the league, especially since he was able to bounce between 2B and SS.
