Athletics' Brett Lawrie remains sidelined Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1:24 pm ET) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie remains out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Tigers.
Lawrie hasn't played since Friday while dealing with a back issue; however, he's seen much improvement and will likely start Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He has hit .279/.310/.364 with two home runs and 16 RBI in 165 at-bats. Max Muncy is drawing another start at third base in his place.
The A's are favorites (-125) at home on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.

Ailing Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie out Saturday, maybe Sunday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Third baseman Brett Lawrie is one of the few hot Athletics, but he is out of the lineup Saturday against the host Rays. Bob Melvin has stated that he's a "little banged up" and added that he could be out Sunday as well because the games are on artificial turf.
Versatile Max Muncy is manning the position instead.
Lawrie is on a five-game hitting streak in which he has eight hits in 20 at-bats. His slash line on the season is .279/.310/.364.
A's 3B Lawrie goes 3 for 4 with a double for second straight day
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/20/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie went 3 for 4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the Astros. It's the second consecutive three-hit performance for the first-year Athletic, as he brought his batting average up to a season-high .280.
Lawrie has been rather quiet in the power department, owning just two home runs on the season so far. But he gets on base regularly and has been a productive member of the A's offense.
Athletics' Brett Lawrie yet to homer in May
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie hit double-digit home runs in each of his last three seasons, but he's managed just two homers in 2015 and none in May.
In addition to struggling to find his power stroke, Lawrie has drawn just six walks this season, though three have come in his last four games. Four of the six walks have come against lefties, but he's hitting just .176/.263/.235 against lefties this season, continuing his struggles against southpaws from the last few seasons.
Lawrie has hit .255/.292/.338 in 145 at-bats. His on-base percentage and his slugging percentage would mark career lows in both categories.
|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.
