Line of the Day: April 18th, 2011

2B/SS Jed Lowrie of the Boston Red Sox was 4-for-5 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored in a 9-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. It was Lowrie's second home run and raised his batting average to .516 (16/31) for the season. I can't imagine a scenario where Marco Scutaro gets his starting job back, barring injury.

Line: 5 AB, 2 R, 4 H, 4 RBI; HR

Fantasy perspective: Lowrie has 15 hits in his last 24 at-bats (.625 BA) over the last 10 days. He's only 22.8% owned in ESPN leagues and 37% owned in Yahoo! leagues. He qualifies at both 2B and SS and have major value at either position as long as he continues to see the bulk of playing time at shortstop. I'd love to see him get some time at 3B, too, on days when Kevin Youkilis or Adrian Gonzalez get a breather as the DH.
