(5/14/13) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie doubled twice among three hits on Tuesday as Toronto pounded out 18 hits in a 10-6 win over the Giants.
Lawrie went 3 for 5 in the game and his double to right field in the sixth inning drove in his 10th run of the season.
The Toronto third baseman has hits in three straight games, including two doubles and a home run. He's up to four homers to go with his .200 batting average.

(5/10/13) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie continues to disappoint since coming off the disabled list, a frustrating sign for Fantasy owners who drafted Lawrie as a borderline No. 1 option. Lawrie was drafted as the 13th third baseman on average in CBSSports.com leagues, but he ranks outside of the top-50 at his position so far.
Given Lawrie's pedigree and track record, Fantasy owners should definitely be expecting more from him moving forward. He remains a solid buy-low candidate thanks to his power potential, but his short-term value has just about hit rock bottom, as he is just 4 for 32 in eight games to open the month of May.
As Scott White notes in his Hit Parade column, Lawrie is a particularly poor starting option for Week 7 (May 13-19). The Blue Jays are one of three teams with just five games on the schedule this week, so Lawrie would have to bust out in a big way to be worth a place in your lineup. Hope he gets it turned around soon, but don't expect much this week.

(5/10/13) In an effort to shake Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie from his season-long slump, hitting coach Chad Mottola held an early batting practice session with him Thursday. The goal is for Lawrie to calm down at the plate as his batting stance contains too much motion, resulting in a .179 batting average.
"We're just trying to simplify things," Mottola told the Toronto Sun. "The way he works, he's fast-twitch and he tends to try to do more when he starts struggling and thinks that's going to help. So we're just trying to calm him down, teach him ways to calm him down."

(5/5/13) The Blue Jays gave third baseman Brett Lawrie a rest on Sunday against Seattle and starter Joe Saunders. Lawrie is batting just .197 this season with three homers and seven RBI over 66 at-bats.
The slick-fielding third baseman has gone 0 for 7 over his last two games after ending a seven-game hitting streak in which he went 9 for 27 (.333) with all three of his homers.
Yankees shut out Blue Jays
Hiroki Kuroda pitched two-hit ball for eight dominant innings and the New York Yankees again beat Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays, 5-0 on Friday night.
Blue Jays can score a lot, but can they score (and win) often enough?
The Blue Jays are the only team in baseball to score double-digit runs in three straight games. Is it enough to get them going?
Hit Parade for Week 8
Some heavy hitters are finally starting to return to form and good health, leaving owners with many tough decisions. Our Scott White looks at all of the streaks and matchups in his latest Hit Parade.
Blue Jays crush Giants for fourth straight win

Brett Lawrie posts three-hit night
|Brett Lawrie impressed during a 43-game stint in the majors in 2011 and was the starter at third base from Day 1 for the Blue Jays in 2012. He batted .291 with a .425 slugging percent, eight homers, 33 RBI and 11 stolen bases in the first half but was not the same after suffering an oblique injury in August. Lawrie spent some time on the disabled list and returned in early September to hit .237 with a .361 slugging percentage in his final 25 games. While it was not as impressive as his callup one year earlier, Lawrie showed owners a lot to like in his first full season in the majors and has a ton of potential at age 22. He should continue to progress in 2013 and with the offseason moves Toronto made, will be batting in a potent lineup. Lawrie is not yet at elite status but based on his potential, target him in the early middle rounds on Draft Day. (Updated 12/18/12)|
