Lowrie Passes Lugo in RBIs, but not Errors
Jed Lowrie is really starting to hit his stride now that he’s settled in playing everyday since Lugo has been on the DL:
Jed Lowrie: 122 at-bats, 28 RBIs (6 in the last 3 games), 0 Errors
Julio Lugo: 261 at-bats, 22 RBIs, 16 Errors
So Lugo can play third on days that Casey sits (that sounds dangerous) or maybe fill in at SS once in a while for Lowrie (but we have Cora to do that) or come in as a defensive replacement (only if we have a 10 run-lead). There is really no other way to slice it, Tito can’t go back to Lugo until we clinch a Playoff berth. The numbers don’t lie.
