Lowrie selected as Astros' player representative
CHICAGO -- Astros shortstop Jed Lowrie was recently elected by his teammates to be the team's player representative to the Major League Baseball Players Association this season. Jason Castro, Justin Maxwell and J.A. Happ are alternate reps.

Lowrie, who attended Stanford, said the job comes with a lot of responsibility, especially with the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

"I think there's probably going to be many guys asking about it, so I'm going to do my best to answer any questions that I can, and if I can't, I'll refer them to the right people," Lowrie said.

Lowrie hasn't yet had a chance to study the new CBA as closely as he would like to, but he plans to read it thoroughly.

"Obviously, with the season, we're focused on playing right now," Lowrie said. "I'm going to make sure I understand it."
