Athletics Place SS Lowrie on DL
(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- Shortstop Jed Lowrie was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Oakland Athletics Thursday due to a hairline fracture in his right index finger.
Lowrie has played with the injury since Aug. 4, but it started affecting his performance in a negative way, making him realize he should rest and recuperate.
Oakland currently has the best record in baseball.
Infielder Andy Parrino was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to take Lowrie's place.
