Brett Lawrie needs to be a Fantasy part-timer


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(6/11/2014) With a large debt to his 11 home runs and 36 RBI, Brett Lawrie is currently starting in 77 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com, but in at least some weeks of the remaining schedule for the Blue Jays, that number should drop dramatically.

Lawrie has been just a moderate power threat away from Rogers Centre, as he has just four home runs and four doubles in 109 at-bats. He is also batting .202 in away games, and while some of a .207 BABIP is the result of bad luck, a 22.9 percent infield fly rate (per FanGraphs.com) has played a role, too.

Lawrie is just one of a handful of players whom I highlighted in a blog post on hitters who have been impacted by park factors. As with the other players included in the analysis, owners should consider Lawrie's upcoming venues when determining whether to start or sit him.


Brett Lawrie smacks three-run home run vs. Tigers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 5-3 win over the Tigers Tuesday.

Lawrie's ninth-inning shot extended the lead to 5-0, and the Blue Jays ended up needing the insurance, as the Tigers answered with their own three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth before bowing out. Lawrie has hit .239/.286/.418 with nine home runs and 34 RBI in 201 at-bats.


Brett Lawrie drives in three


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie drove in three runs Saturday against the Royals.

Lawrie was hit by a pitch in the first inning, driving in a run. He would go on to drive in a run on a single in his next bat, and add a sac fly later in the game. Lawrie finished 2 for 3, with no runs scored and three RBI. Through 190 at-bats, Lawrie is hitting .232/.279/.405.


Hitting coach sees bright future for Brett Lawrie


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2014) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie might have just a .224 average through 43 games, but hitting coach Kevin Seitzer continues to see a bright future for the 24-year-old infielder, per MLB.com.

"He's full of talent," Seitzer said. "He's still young, 24 years old, learning the pitching and making adjustments throughout the big league season and he's coming along great. So even though his numbers aren't where he wants them or where we want them, the quality of at-bats he's been having, I take my hat off to him. Especially after how slow he started, he's just been phenomenal."


Brett Lawrie clobbers homer in defeat of Athletics


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Brett Lawrie rediscovering his power


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie has rediscovered his power, according to the Toronto Star.

Through 144 at-bats, Lawrie has already popped seven home runs. Over the past two seasons, he experienced somewhat of a power drought, homering once every 44.5 plate appearances. A big part of his success is due to hitting coach Kevin Seitzer.

“[Lawrie's] getting himself in a good position consistently and not over-swinging, using his hands, not trying to do too much and really staying in the middle of the field,” Seitzer said. He added that experience has helped Lawrie calm down at the plate, and learn how pitchers are going to throw to him. 

Lawrie is hitting .236 in 144 at-bats.

Brett Lawrie likely to return this weekend


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) The Blue Jays expect to have third baseman Brett Lawrie back in the lineup during a weekend series against the Angels, manager John Gibbons told MLB.com Friday.

"Hopefully [he's back Saturday] or Sunday. He's going to run some more sprints today and see how it goes," said Gibbons.

Lawrie missed his fourth game in a row Friday due to a hamstring injury, but has not been considered a candidate for the disabled list at this point.

Upon his return to action, Lawrie may even see some time away from third, with Juan Francisco's strong play recently. Gibbons seems open to the idea of playing Lawrie at second base against right-handed pitchers, where he has played four games this season.

"Right now, we're looking at everything," said Gibbons. "When [Francisco is] hot, we have to look at keeping him in there."
