The Buyer's Guide: Jed Lowrie

1

Eric Roseberry

What does dancing legend Mikhail Baryshnikov have to do with A's infielder Jed Lowrie? It is related to why you should trade Lowrie ASAP.

Jed Lowrie wasn’t on the radar of many fantasy owners at the start of the season. He didn’t crack Baseball Prospectus’ Top 300 for 2017, and unless you play in the deepest of leagues he simply wasn’t a target. However, Lowrie is off to one of the best starts of his career. By ESPN’s Player Rater, he’s been the 15th-most productive second baseman this season. That level of production has started to gain Lowrie more attention from the fantasy community.

Over the past week, Lowrie’s ownership rate jumped from 19.3 percent to 33.5 percent in ESPN leagues. That was the ninth-largest percentage increase. Over at CBS, Lowrie saw a spike in ownership from 21 percent to 38 percent. In Yahoo’s latest “Transaction Trends,” he was the fifth most-added second baseman. It’s clear that Lowrie has become a player worthy of a closer look.

The Buyer's Guide: Talking yourself into Kevin Pillar

3

Eric Roseberry

He appears to have made adjustments at the plate, but will the effects be long lasting?

Depending on the size of your league, it can be difficult to find productive players to fill each outfield spot. Often, there are one or two spots where you’re left playing someone who’s going to get regular playing time, but ultimately could be a drain in several categories. Owners are always on the lookout for quality outfield options.

This is especially the case if you roster an outfielder who has suffered an injury or has been suspended. Adam Eaton and Starling Marte were starting outfielders who are missing a significant portion of the season (all of it, in Eaton’s case). Beyond that, there are several players currently suffering from injuries who find themselves out of action. This list includes players such as Ryan Braun, Joc Pederson, Denard Span, Mitch Haniger, Yoenis Cespedes, David Dahl and J.D. Martinez.

They might lack that one marquee name, but no system in baseball can boast of having as many players at the upper levels who project as average or better big leaguers.
