|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/26/15) The Athletics have played musical chairs with their second spot in the lineup lately with four players manning it over the last 16 games.
Make that five in 17 games. Brett Lawrie has been placed there for the first time this season Friday night against Kansas City.
Lawrie, who has batted second just seven times in his career, has been on a roll. He is batting .376 (17-for-45) since June 12.

A's 3B Brett Lawrie getting a day off on Tuesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/16/15) After starting 18 of the last 19 games, Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie will receive a day off on Tuesday, as he is being held out of the lineup against the Padres.
In that 18-game stretch, Lawrie is batting .279 with four home runs and 11 RBI. Lawrie is dealing with a bit of back stifness, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Max Muncy is getting the start at the hot corner on Tuesday.
Brett Lawrie homers in two-hit game for Athletics
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/13/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie went 2 for 4 in Friday's loss to the Angels.
Lawrie hit a solo home run in the fourth inning, his sixth of the year, driving in his 25th run.
|2014 summary: Every year, we hope for improvement from Brett Lawrie, but every year, we get more of the same. He was predictably mediocre in 2014, showing flashes of his 2011 greatness only on occasion, such as a 25-game stretch from mid-April to mid-May in which he hit .313 with six home runs, and he ultimately got hurt, playing in less than 130 games for the third straight season. But even if you assess him on a per-game basis, he was just the 17th-best third baseman in Head-to-Head points leagues.|
Playing time status: While the majority of Lawrie's injuries -- a strained oblique in 2012, a sprained ankle in 2013, a fractured finger in 2014, etc. -- seem like fluke occurrences, his all-out style puts him at greater risk than most players. His move to Oakland won't change his role at all since the Athletics gave up their third baseman, Josh Donaldson, in the deal.
2015 outlook: Of course, with the move to Oakland, Lawrie goes from one of the best hitter's parks to one of the worst, which won't help him regain the power stroke he showed as a rookie. By now, that ship has probably sailed, though. At age 25, Lawrie can still make something of his career, perhaps by taking advantage of a better-than-average contact rate, but it's going to take the kind of transformation you shouldn't be predicting on Draft Day. He's a last resort at third base.
