OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Infielder Jed Lowrie is returning to Oakland after a one-year stay in Houston.

The Athletics acquired Lowrie from the Astros on Wednesday for minor league right-hander Brendan McCurry less than a year after Lowrie left Oakland to sign a three-year deal with Houston.

"Jed is a very good player," A's general manager David Forst said. "He was very good here, he had a good year in Houston. It was a good opportunity for us."
