PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — The New York Mets uttered that dreaded three-letter acronym for the first time in spring training, and it involved Jed Lowrie: MRI.
NEW YORK (AP) — Brodie Van Wagenen has certainly been busy since changing careers.
Heading into his first spring training as Mets general manager, the former player agent has already engineered a major roster overhaul that has New York eyeing the playoffs in a beefed-up NL East.
NEW YORK (AP) — Jed Lowrie would rather talk about wine than whine.
The infielder visited Citi Field on Wednesday after finalizing a $20 million, two-year contract with the New York Mets, likely less money and a shorter term than he would have gotten before the free-agent market for solid-but-less-than-stellar veterans buckled a year ago.
"I think that argument could be made," he said. "But you deal in reality, and so I'm excited to be a Met."
NEW YORK (AP) — Free agent infielder Jed Lowie and the New York Mets have agreed to a $20 million, two-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.
The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Thursday because the agreement is subject to a successful physical.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics plan to discuss a contract extension with manager Bob Melvin this offseason as well as possible new deals with home run leader Khris Davis and All-Star second baseman Jed Lowrie.
Two days after the A's lost to the New York Yankees in a wild-card game, team officials began mapping out the framework for 2019 with hopes of capitalizing on the team's first playoff appearance in four years.
A look at the American League wild-card game between the Oakland Athletics and New York Yankees:
Schedule: Wednesday, at New York, 8:08 p.m. EDT (TBS).
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Oakland Athletics' minds are already partly on the wild card playoff game looming in the Bronx.
They're still finishing up the regular season in Orange County with an attention to all the little details that could make a difference in the postseason.
Khris Davis hit his major league-leading 48th homer and the A's locked up their winningest season in 16 years with a 5-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night.
SEATTLE (AP) — Champagne flowed in the clubhouse as players bopped around and screamed in a wild celebration after the Oakland Athletics clinched their first playoff berth in four years.
"It's a lot of fun," a soaked Khris Davis said. "We're just trying to enjoy the moment. It's a blast. We've been waiting for this day for a while. I feel so much excitement. It's just a dream come true."
SEATTLE (AP) — The Oakland Athletics clinched their first playoff berth in four years, then beat the Seattle Mariners 7-3 Monday night behind Khris Davis' major league-leading 46th home run.
Jonathan Lucroy, Jed Lowrie and Matt Chapman also homered for the A's, assured no worse than an AL wild card.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Whether playing 20 straight games without a break, bouncing back from a tough loss or pulling off a late-game rally, manager Bob Melvin sure appreciates his resilient Oakland Athletics.
Stephen Piscotty hit a two-run single, Matt Chapman and Matt Olson each doubled in a run, and the A's jumped on the New York Yankees early for an 8-2 win Wednesday night.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Matt Chapman continued his torrid second-half hitting with a pair of solo homers to help Oakland to another series victory, sending the Athletics to Houston for three crucial games with the first-place Astros.
Jed Lowrie drove in three runs with a homer and double, and the Athletics' bullpen preserved an effective outing by call-up Chris Bassitt for a 6-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have placed ace James Paxton on the disabled list with a forearm bruise, one day after the left-hander was struck by a line drive.
Paxton was facing the third batter in the first inning Tuesday night when Jed Lowrie lined a ball back up the middle, hitting the pitcher hard. Paxton walked toward second base in obvious pain as a team trainer and manager Scott Servais rushed onto the field.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Another solid outing from Mike Fiers and Jed Lowrie's 100th career home run helped the surging Oakland Athletics move a step closer to first place in the AL West.
The Seattle Mariners, who were eight games ahead of Oakland six weeks weeks ago, are just trying to stick around in the wild-card race, a task that got a little tougher following an injury to ace James Paxton's pitching arm.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Seattle Mariners ace James Paxton was replaced by Felix Hernandez in the first inning Tuesday night after being hit by a line drive on his pitching arm.
X-rays on Paxton's left arm were negative, and he was diagnosed with a forearm contusion.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Bob Melvin might have a little better understanding of the anxiety other teams feel when his Oakland Athletics come roaring back in the late innings.
Seattle nearly did it to the A's. These AL West rivals are among the best at staying in games until the very end despite a big deficit.
Jed Lowrie drove in four runs to back Sean Manaea, and the A's held off a late Seattle rally to beat the Mariners 7-6 on Monday night in a matchup of playoff contenders.
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Playing with a sore hand and a banged-up left leg, the Oakland Athletics' Jed Lowrie would be the first to confirm that winning ugly is way better than losing.
Lowrie homered and moved over 1,000 hits for his career, and the Oakland Athletics held on for an 8-7 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday, their ninth win in 11 games.
Lowrie took no issue with a potential blowout turning into a nail-biter, a rare occurrence for Oakland's bullpen.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Newly acquired Mike Fiers pitched 5 1/3 strong innings and the Oakland Athletics beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Wednesday night.
The A's broke a 2-2 in the eighth inning when Khris Davis hit a fielder's choice grounder off Dodgers reliever J.T. Chargois (2-3), scoring Marcus Semien from third.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Detroit Tigers left-hander Blaine Hardy gave up Jed Lowrie's infield single to begin the seventh inning for the Athletics' first hit, ending a no-hit bid as the clubs opened a weekend series Friday night.
Hardy had issued only a pair of walks to Matt Olson — the first on a 13-pitch plate appearance in the second. Before the walk, Olson's drive to right went to a crew chief review and was confirmed as sailing just right of the pole.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — With a 21-6 record since mid-June, the Oakland Athletics are storming into the All-Star break on quite a roll.
Their ace is pitching like he was earlier in the season and they're continuing to hit home runs on the road at a sizzling rate.
Stephen Piscotty went deep for the fifth time in nine games on Sunday as the A's beat the San Francisco Giants 6-2.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A pair of tiny replica All-Star jerseys hung in Jed Lowrie's locker, gifts for his two young children.
After a scary collision in right field, the Athletics second baseman is hopeful he'll still be able to wear his during next week's gala in Washington.
Lowrie had to come out of Oakland's 7-1 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Friday night because of a bone bruise and calf bruise in his left leg.
CLEVELAND (AP) — Jed Lowrie and Khris Davis gave the Athletics an opportunity for another come-from-behind win. Stephen Piscotty completed the job.
Piscotty belted a go-ahead, two-run homer in the 11th inning as Oakland rallied for a 6-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday afternoon.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Jed Lowrie loves the feeling of coming through with a clutch hit late to lift his team, and he just keeps showing a knack for it.
He is a big reason the A's are rarely out of games even when down by a couple of runs.
The Oakland second baseman delivered his 12th game-winning RBI after filling in beautifully at third base during Matt Chapman's absence, hitting a three-run double in the decisive sixth to help rally the Athletics past the San Diego Padres 6-2 on Tuesday night.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — When Paul Blackburn needed 47 pitches to make it through the first two innings, it didn't seem he would last long for the Oakland Athletics.
Then Blackburn found his groove and led the streaking A's to another win.
Blackburn pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning and Oakland won its fifth straight game, beating the Cleveland Indians 3-1 on Friday night.
DETROIT (AP) — The Oakland Athletics left home as a .500 team, looking for a spark. They're returning to the Coliseum looking very sharp.
Jed Lowrie had two more hits, Sean Manaea pitched six strong innings and the Athletics beat the Detroit Tigers 4-2 Thursday to sweep a four-game series.
DETROIT (AP) — The Oakland Athletics leaned on pitching, defense and Jed Lorie's clutch hitting to overcome their lack of a long ball.
Lowrie hit an RBI double in the fourth inning and Chris Bassitt pitched six innings to help Oakland beat the Detroit Tigers 3-0 on Wednesday night.
The A's did not clear the fences, ending their major league-record streak at 27 road games.
"We put home run swings on them," manager Bob Melvin said. "We just didn't get rewarded for them."
DETROIT (AP) — Jed Lowrie didn't need a home run this time. A single up the middle was plenty.
Lowrie drove in the tiebreaking run in the top of the ninth inning for a second straight game, and the Oakland Athletics rallied from six runs down to beat Detroit 9-7 on Tuesday night, handing the Tigers their seventh straight loss.
DETROIT (AP) — Edwin Jackson figures he'll enjoy pitching for as long as teams are willing to put him on the mound.
Jackson tied a record Monday when he played for his 13th major league club, allowing a run in six innings for the Oakland Athletics in their 5-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Called up from Triple-A for his first big league appearance of 2018, Jackson matched the mark for most teams set by former reliever Octavio Dotel.
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Five home runs. Back-to-back twice.
The Oakland Athletics put on quite the power display in beating the San Diego Padres 12-4 on Wednesday.
Light-hitting Franklin Barreto got the barrage started when he connected for a 424-foot, three-run home run in the second inning off rookie lefty Joey Lucchesi, who was returning from more than a month on the disabled list. Josh Phegley, Mark Canha, Matt Olson and Jed Lowrie also went deep for Oakland.
