The Houston Astros have brought back a familiar face as they resigned Jed Lowrie to a three year deal reportedly worth around 23 million over the three years.  Lowrie was the everyday shortstop for Houston during the 2012 season before being traded to the Oakland Athletics for the 2013-2014.  In 97 games with the Astros in 2012, Lowrie hit 16 home runs while posting a .769 OPS and playing solid defense (.980 fielding pct.)

Lowrie came to the Astros from the Red Sox, where he was drafted in 2005, in 2011 and then dealt after the 2012 season to the A’s for current Astros Brad Peacock, Chris Carter and minor league catcher Max Stassi.
