Worth noting

• Shortstop Jed Lowrie (fractured right index finger) is expected to be activated off the disabled list in time to start Monday's series opener against the Mariners at the Coliseum.

Lowrie is among several players who will join the club, with rosters expanding Monday for the final month of the regular season. The A's are anticipating to call up a handful of Minor Leaguers, none of whom were named Sunday since they had yet to be informed.
