Fake Teams Fantasy Player of the Day: Red Sox Infielder Jed Lowrie

Red Sox infielder Jed Lowrie was a popular sleeper pick in the pre-season after his solid showing in 2010 where he hit .287-.381-.526 with 9 HRs, 24 RBIs, and 31 runs scored in just 171 at bats.

Lowrie went 4-5 with a HR, 2 runs scored and 4 RBIs on Monday afternoon in helping the Red Sox win their third game in a row. He has hit in 7 straight games and is 15 for his last 24 at the plate with 2 HRs, 8 runs scored and 9 RBIs. For the season, he is hitting .516-.545-.774 with 2 HRs and 9 RBIs.

Lowrie has a solid batting eye as he had a 15% K rate and 13% BB rate last year, and has improved the K rate in his limited at bats this season. Should he get more playing time this year, Lowrie should combine solid power and solid plate discipline at the shortstop position, but won't steal many bases while doing so.

Lowrie should be picked up in AL-only and mixed leagues as he has a good shot at seeing more playing time.
