|Brett Lawrie moved to 60-day DL, ending his season |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(9/2/14) The Blue Jays transferred infielder Brett Lawrie to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, a move which will bring his season to an end due to an oblique injury.
Lawrie has been out since Aug. 5 as a result of the injury, and there is no indication he has made much progress while recovering. He finished the season with a .247/.301/.421 line in 259 at-bats, with 12 home runs and 38 RBI.

(8/22/14) There's no timetable for Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie's return, according to Sportsnet.
Lawrie has been sidelined since August 5 due to an oblique injury. Lawrie is currently rehabbing in Arizona. Manager John Gibbons said he has no idea when Lawrie will return. "When he'll be back, I have no idea, nobody knows," Gibbons said. Lawrie hit .247/.301/.421 over 259 at-bats.
|Is that stashed superstar really worth the wait? |

(8/12/14) So you're at the point, with the season winding down, where you have to win at all costs. Seems straightforward enough. The only problem is your bench is overflowing with players you can't actually use -- ones that are injured but too valuable to drop, like Brett Lawrie, Brandon Phillips, Adam Eaton, Michael Wacha, Paul Goldschmidt, Yadier Molina, Ryan Zimmerman, Joey Votto, Carlos Gonzalez or Masahiro Tanaka.
Or maybe your albatross isn't injured but just doesn't inspire much confidence right now, like Pedro Alvarez, Justin Verlander or Mike Minor.
I've got news for you: This late in the year, when winning is paramount, you can consider dropping them. Granted, it shouldn't be the goal because the competition can only benefit from whatever you forfeit, but sometimes, it's your only choice.
I break it down player-by-player in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, so if you could a little assistance with that season-shifting dilemma, be sure to check out.
|Brett Lawrie placed on DL with oblique injury |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/7/14) The Blue Jays have placed third baseman Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Aug. 6, with an oblique strain. But he's expected to miss 3-6 weeks.
The team has grown accustomed to playing without Lawrie, who had been coming off a broken finger and has had just one at-bat since June 22.
|Report: Blue Jays worried about Brett Lawrie |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/7/14) The Blue Jays have become concerned that the back tightness experienced by third baseman Brett Lawrie is in the same region as the left oblique strain that landed him on the disabled list for almost a month in 2013.
Lawrie underwent an MRI on Wednesday after being pulled from the Tuesday game with back tightness. John Gibbons declined to reveal its results to the National Post "until the time's right."
The 24-year-old Lawrie was slidelined with a right oblique strain in 2012 and left oblique strain last season. He has played just one game for the Blue Jays since June 22.
|Brett Lawrie's overall line in 2013 won't inspire many Fantasy players to move him up preseason ranking lists: a .254 average, with 11 home runs and nine steals in 401 at-bats. Lawrie did miss about 55 games with two injuries -- a rib cage tweak in the World Baseball Classic and an ankle injury from a May slide. At the time of his ankle injury, Lawrie was hitting .209 with five home runs. In his final 70 games, Lawrie hit .279, with a .340 OBP, 14 doubles, and six home runs. It's still not what many who pegged Lawrie as the next big thing were hoping for, but it's easy to forget he's just 24 years old and was a perennial top prospect for the Blue Jays coming up through the minors. There's still some hope for Lawrie as a third baseman who can hit for power, steal some bases, and give an owner a .280-.290 average with 30-ish doubles. His 2012 and 2013 campaigns should drive his price down far enough to make Lawrie a Draft Day bargain.
