A's Brett Lawrie dealing with lat issue
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(8/19/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie has not been in the starting lineup for the last two games because of a lat issue, reports MLB.com.
"He's a little bit banged up," manager Bob Melvin said. "He'd typically be in there against the lefty, so we're a little bit limited."
His status for Wednesday's game is not known at this time.
A's 3B Brett Lawrie held out of lineup Monday vs. Orioles
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(8/17/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie was held out of the starting lineup Monday against the Orioles. It was just the third time since June 29 that Lawrie was not in the starting lineup.
Lawrie, who homered during Sunday's 18-2 loss, is batting .185 (10 for 54) through 14 August games. He also has one double, one triple, two home runs, four RBI, six runs, two walks and 18 strikeouts this month.
Athletics Brett Lawrie gets rare day off, Max Muncy starts
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(8/1/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game, after starting 95 games this season, including the last 14 and 25 of the last 26.
Max Muncy gets the call at the hot corner for Saturday's game, starting for the first time since June 28 and ninth time this year.
|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.
