Jed Lowrie had a big night with Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.
The infielder, who has yet to make his Mets major-league debut because of a sprained knee capsule suffered early in Spring Training, went 3-for-4 with a home run for the Syracuse Mets. It was Lowrie's first multi-hit game since beginning a rehab assignment; he was just 2-for-23 in six total games with High-A Port St. Lucie and Syracuse.

Lowrie, whom the Mets signed to a two-year, $20 million deal over the winter, played nine innings at third base. That's where he'll likely most of his playing time whenever he is activated from the injured list.
What that means for Todd Frazier isn't completely clear, as Mickey Callaway didn't give a straight answer when asked about Frazier's playing time before Friday's game, which began with Frazier on the bench. Logic dictates that Frazier, who's hitting .143, will see fewer starts.
Yahoo's Matt Ehalt reported Friday night that Lowrie will be reassessed Saturday but won't be activated yet.
