Athletics trade for Jed LowrieMonday February 4th, 2013
Lowrie, who turns 29 in April, hit .244/.331/.438 for the Astros last season. The trade is bit of a homecoming for Lowrie, an Oregon native who attended Stanford before the Red Sox drafted him in 2005.
The Sox traded the oft-injured Lowrie and Kyle Weiland to the Astros last year for righthander Mark Melancon.
Get this: Lowrie will make $2.4 million this season, which made him one of the highest paid players on the Astros. Their top-paid players now:
RHP Bud Norris ($3 million)
1B Carlos Pena ($2.9 million)
RHP Jose Veras ($2 million)
LHP Wesley Wright ($1.025 million)
RHP Philip Humber ($850,000)
That's amazing. And the Astros will be playing in the American League West this season.
Houston starts a four-game series at Fenway Park on April 25.
