    Color me as surprised that there is another injury surrounding Lowrie and the possibility that he could have a starting job and fulfill his potential.

    •  It’s very minor.  MRIs came up negative.  Worst case he misses 1 week from it.

         That’s good. Nothing would make me happier than to see him make it through **1** season without any serious injury. wrist, mono (illness.. yes..) that seem to follow him around. even last season he was tearing it up with the bat, before his wrist once again was hurt and his offensive stats plummeted the 2nd half of the season.

        *IF* he can stay healthy an entire season? It would not shock me to see him top 5 offensive numbers for a SS for the season.

    •  Color me surprised that Lowrie is a Rule 5 pick…. oh, wait.
