Jed Lowrie, with just two weeks remaining in the regular season, has yet to make a start for the Mets. As long as the Amazin’s are pushing for the postseason, it sounds like Lowrie will only be used off the bench.
Manager Mickey Callaway was asked on Saturday whether Lowrie will start this year. The skipper’s comments implied that the Mets don’t think the infielder gives them their best shot at snatching a wild card spot.
"Right now, we know that he's an option and he's going to continue to be,” Callaway said. “We're trying to get into the playoffs and we're going to continue to play the players that we think are going to allow us to do that.”
