|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.
A's 3B Brett Lawrie busts out with four hits, four RBI on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/30/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie had himself quite a night at the plate against the Dodgers on Wednesday. Lawrie went 4 for 5 with a home run, two doubles, four RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base.
In the fifth inning, Lawrie brought his team to with a run when he ripped an RBI double to make the score 3-2. In the seventh, he chipped in a two-run single to give the A's a 4-3 lead. And he capped off his night by launching a solo home run, his ninth of the year, in the ninth inning. It was too little too late however, as the Dodgers held on for the 10-7 win.
This was the first four-hit game and third four-RBI game of Lawrie's career. The strong showing at the dish gives Lawrie a .268 batting average over his last 10 games.

|(7/7/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie led off the 10th inning with a solo home run on Tuesday. The shot put the A's on top to stay.
It was Lawrie's second career extra-inning home run and first since Sept. 5, 2011.
Lawrie went 1 for 4 and hit his eighth homer of the year. It was his first homer since June 24 and just his second RBI since then.
Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie gets rare start in second spot
|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 continues hot streak with grand slam
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/15) Athletics third baseman Brett Lawrie blasted his third career grand slam in Wednesday night's 8-2 win over the Rangers.
The grand slam went for Lawrie's seventh home run of the year. Lawrie has been hot at the plate of late as he's hitting .395 over his last 10 games. In that span, Lawrie has posted 10 RBI, with four coming Wednesday night.
Lawrie finished Wednesday's game 3 for 5 with two singles. His slash line for the year is now .292/.327/.431.
|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.
