Manager Bob Melvin said Lowrie was "better" Wednesday morning.
"He felt much better swinging the bat today," said Melvin. "He still felt it a little throwing, but he'll be in here early tomorrow and we'll get a read on that. Much better chance than we had today."
Eric Sogard has been manning shortstop in place of Lowrie, who is batting .337 with 10 multi-hit games over his last 24 contests
