Will Carroll's Team Health Report

SI.com's Will Carroll posted his Team Health Reports for all 30 teams. But we don't care about all 30 teams. Click the link, because it's definitely well-worth your time, but here are some notable items:

On Jed Lowrie:
I don't begrudge any guy his chance, but Lowrie is better in small doses. He can be streaky, but he tends to be overexposed, which leads to injuries, as it did last year. Wrist and shoulder injuries affect his rating a lot more than mono, but it's the kind of thing that seems to pop up with this kind of player. The Astros have Matt Downs backing things up as their super-sub, but he's just a poor man's Lowrie. How much the medical staff can prop up Lowrie through small dings will go a long way in helping the team.
