Jed Lowrie is a free agent who was called up from the minor leagues in 2008 to play for the Boston Red Sox. He has primarily played shortstop throughout his career but has played second and third base as well. After playing 3 years with the Red Sox, he was traded to the Houston Astros before going on and playing for Oakland Athletics and then back to the Astros before going back to Athletics and finally, the New York Mets.

During Lowrie’s time with the Athletics, Lowrie set a new Oakland record for most doubles in a season: 49 in 2017. A year later, on July 10, 2018, owning a .288 batting average with 16 home runs and 62 RBIs, Lowrie was named as an All-Star for the first time in his career.

Lowrie and his wife Melissa are involved in several community and philanthropic initiatives, particularly around veteran and children’s issues.
