Giants considering Lowrie as contingency plan

The Giants are reportedly looking at Jed Lowrie as a potential option at third base in the event that Chase Headley decides to sign elsewhere, according to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick.

Though primarily a shortstop over his first seven big league seasons, Lowrie is open to the idea of also playing second base or third base. Each of his 129 starts in the field for the A’s last season came at shortstop, though he has made 83 appearances at third base and 58 at second base during his career.

It was reported earlier Monday by MLB.com’s Brian McTaggart that the Astros are interested in a reunion with Lowrie, while Crasnick adds that the Marlins could be another potential landing spot.

Lowrie seems to be developing a significant amount of interest in recent days and his market would only develop further if Headley was to make a decision in the near future.
