MESA, Ariz. — Jed Lowrie is staying with the Oakland Athletics to increase the infielder’s third stint with the membership, reaching settlement on a one-year contract.
The A’s introduced the deal Saturday.
Lowrie, who turns 38 subsequent month, returned to Oakland final season on a minor league contract and have become a key contributor on a membership that missed the playoffs after three straight berths.

Earlier within the week, the A’s introduced again fan favourite veteran catcher Stephen Vogt. Oakland traded away ace Chris Bassitt, first baseman Matt Olson and third baseman Matt Chapman.
