Brett Lawrie knocks three-run home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2014) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie went 1 for 3 with a three-run home run in his team's 9-3 win over the Orioles Tuesday.

Despite slugging four home runs, Lawrie has struggled offensively in the first few weeks of the season. He has hit just .135/.198/.297 with 15 RBI in 74 at-bats.


Brett Lawrie drives in five in big win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie had just one hit Tuesday against the Twins, but he made it count in a 9-3 win.

Lawrie went 1 for 4 in the game, but the lone hit broke the game open, as he clubbed a grand slam in the ninth inning. He drove in an additional run in the sixth on a sacrifice fly.

Lawrie is hitting just .132/.175/.302 through 14 games, albeit with three home runs and nine RBI.   


Brett Lawrie's intensity might be hurting him offensively


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Blue Jays manager John Gibbons explained to MLB Network Radio why third baseman Brett Lawrie can be a streaky hitter.

"Brett's wired tight and it helps him defensively, but can work against him offensively. His hand waggle is timing," Gibbons said. 

Despite the slow start, Gibbons is not worried about Lawrie -- who is batting .121 through nine games -- and feels he still has a bright future.

"He had a great spring, and he's always pushed himself to be the guy," Gibbons said. "He shows up to play every day. He'll run through walls for you. I think he'll be one of the better players in game."


Brett Lawrie hits first home run Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie recorded his first home run of the season while going 1 for 4 in his team's 7-3 win over the Astros.

The two-run shot came in the seventh inning and concluded the scoring on both sides. Lawrie has struggled at the plate so far, hitting .121/.171/.212 in 33 at-bats.


Brett Lawrie sporting fat lip


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie is sporting a fat lip after getting hit by a pitch in Friday's game against the Rays, the National Post reports. Lawrie said he did not require stitches and did not lose any teeth. 

Lawrie got back into the lineup in Saturday's game against Tampa Bay. He went 1 for 3 with an RBI Friday and is batting .248 on the year with 11 homers and 45 runs batted in over 395 at-bats for the Blue Jays. Lawrie has gone just 2 for 22 over his last six contests. 


Brett Lawrie has solid performance for Toronto


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie had a nice game Tuesday night during a win over the Diamondbacks from Arizona. Lawrie had two hits and two RBI on the performance.

Lawrie finished the game going 2 for 5 with his 37th and 38th RBI of the season. He's batting .255 for the Blue Jays. Lawrie added his seventh stolen base in the game.

Still just 23, Lawrie has gone just 6 for 31 (.194) with five runs batted in over his last nine games.

Despite streak, still reasons to doubt Brett Lawrie's power


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(8/21/2013) Over the past 21 days, Brett Lawrie has been the most productive second base-eligible player in standard Rotisserie leagues, and he's been among the top four third basemen in Roto and Head-to-Head. Looking beyond the .400 batting average he's put up over that stretch, there are reasons to be hopeful about Lawrie's future, but there are also reasons to temper your expectations.

The good news for Lawrie and his Fantasy owners (not to mention the Blue Jays) is that he has struck out only six times in 75 at-bats during his current hot streak. That could represent another step forward in the improvement of his contact skills, which started last season. Still. that probably won't be enough to make Lawrie a .300 hitter going forward, much less a .400 hitter. He's also gotten help from a .426 BABIP during his streak, and that mark should fall substantially.

Most important, I had hoped that Lawrie would hit for more power, like he did in his 2011 rookie campaign. That year, he posted a 45 percent flyball rate that we hadn't seen him approximate in the minors or since then as a major leaguer. Maybe Lawrie's ground ball and line drive approach will be better for his batting average, but it's probably not good for his overall Fantasy value. As a result, I'm looking at Lawrie as a nothing more than a fringe option in standard mixed leagues.


Brett Lawrie hitting over .400 in August


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2013) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie went 1 for 4 Sunday against the Rays, extending his hitting streak to eight games. Lawrie has failed to record a hit in just one of 17 August games.

Lawrie is batting .415 (27 for 65) with a .585 slugging percentage, 1.026 OPS, one triple, one home run, six doubles, eight RBI, nine runs and four stolen bases in August.


Brett Lawrie steals two bags


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2013) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie stole two bases Sunday during a loss to Oakland. Lawrie also went 3 for 5 at the plate with an RBI. 

Lawrie singled twice and had an RBI double in the game. He did not score in the contest. He's batting .245 and has five stolen bases on the year. 

The 23-year-old Lawrie has hit in nine of his last 10 games and has raised his average considerably over that stretch. He's up to nine homers and 28 RBI over 229 at-bats. 


Brett Lawrie 'using the whole field'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie pushed his hitting streak to nine games with two more hits Tuesday against the Mariners. Since returning from the disabled list July 13, Lawrie is batting .293 with a .533 slugging percentage and .883 OPS in 21 games.

Lawrie hit .209 with a .374 slugging percentage and .642 OPS in 37 games prior to going on the disabled list in late May. Manager John Gibbons explained Tuesday why Lawrie is having better success since returning.

"He's fouling off some tough pitches, where earlier he was swinging and missing and he was out," Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "He's using the whole field now. That's big. Unless you're just a guy that hits a ton of home runs ... you got to take hits the other way."


Brett Lawrie clubs three hits


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2013) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie had three hits Monday against the Mariners.

Lawrie clubbed a single, double and triple during the game. He finished the contest 3 for 4. Lawrie has been hitting well lately, picking up 12 hits over his last eight games. He's hitting .233/.293/.429 in 210 at-bats. 


Brett Lawrie putting together nice hitting streak


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2013) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie pushed his hitting streak to seven games with a single in four at-bats Sunday against the Angels. Lawrie is batting .360 (9 for 25) with one double, two home runs and three RBI in his last seven games.

Since coming off the disabled list July 13, Lawrie is batting .254 with a .478 slugging percentage, .978 OPS, three doubles, four home runs and 10 RBI in 19 games.


Brett Lawrie goes yard


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2013) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie hit his eighth home run Monday against the Athletics. 

Leading off the top of the sixth, Lawrie took an A.J. Griffin fastball out to left for the solo shot. Lawrie finished the game 1 for 3. He's hitting .207/.273/.391 in 184 at-bats.


Brett Lawrie's second base eligibility will stick all year


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/26/2013) With news that the Blue Jays will be moving Brett Lawrie back to third base for the remainder of the season, Fantasy owners... shrugged. 

We got what we needed from Lawrie (at least as far as playing time) -- six games at second base, giving him eligibility there for the rest of the season in most formats. Paired with his already-exisiting third base eligibility, Lawrie has received a marked boost in value. 

Now his owners simply need him to produce at a level higher than his current .205 average (with six homers and two steals). Just 23, Lawrie is still relatively young, but the former top prospect was so good in the minors -- with average, home run, and speed potential -- that it's frustrating to see him consistently struggle at the major league level.

I'm considering him a buy-low candidate right now. The Blue Jays have referred to this season as an "interrupted" one for Lawrie. Maybe with him parked at one position and injuries behind him, he can dial in over the next two months and show some glimpses of the player he can be in 2014 and beyond. 


Brett Lawrie to remain at third base


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2013) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie will remain at third base after a short-lived experiment at second base, the Toronto Sun reports. 

The Blue Jays suggest Lawrie could shift to second base in the future, but with Maicer Izturis and Mark DeRosa as options at second base, the club will shelve the experiment for the rest of the 2013 season. Lawrie played six games at second base but has 41 games of excellent defense at third base this season.


Brett Lawrie done at second


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/25/2013) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie will not play second for a while, according to MLB Network Radio. 

Manager John Gibbons said they've put the experiment on hold. Lawrie will move forward as the team's primary option at third. He's hitting .208/.269/.369 in 168 at-bats. 


Brett Lawrie to keep playing musical chairs


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2013) The Blue Jays are comfortable with infielder Brett Lawrie bouncing between second and third base, MLB.com reports Monday.

"Over time we're just going to take a look at that," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "We're just going to play him at both spots, see how it goes."

Lawrie has gone 3 for 19 (.158) over five games since coming off the disabled list.

Brett Lawrie back at second


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2013) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie will start at second base Monday against the Dodgers.

Lawrie has primarily been used at second after being called up in July, but started Sunday's game at third. Lawrie will hit ninth against Hyun-Jin Ryu. Lawrie is hitting .203/.260/.367 in 158 at-bats. 


Brett Lawrie fine with playing at third base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/21/2013) After starting four straight games at second base since coming off the disabled list, Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie started at third base Sunday against the Rays. Lawrie said he's not frustrated by the move back to third base.

"Wherever I can help the team, wherever the team needs me any day I'll be there," he said, per The Toronto Star.


Brett Lawrie goes hitless in return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2013) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie was back in the lineup playing second base and batting eighth in his return from the disabled list Saturday against the Orioles.

Lawrie was hitless with one strikeout in a 7-3 win. It was his first game since May 27 due to an ankle injury. He is hitting .203. 


Brett Lawrie returns from the DL


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2013) The Blue Jays activated third baseman Brett Lawrie from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, optioning infielder Munenori Kawasaki to Triple-A Buffalo to make room on the roster. Lawrie is playing second base and batting eighth in Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Lawrie has been sidelined since the end of May due to an ankle injury, and hit .282 with an .840 OPS in 39 at-bats during his various minor-league rehab assignments.  


Brett Lawrie could return Friday


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(7/12/2013) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie could return as soon as Friday, the Toronto Sun reports. Lawrie is currently 2 for 12 with 3 RBI in a rehab assignment for Triple-A Buffalo. The club also has been using him at second base throughout the rehab assignment, but general manager Alex Anthopolous said "it's up to [manager John Gibbons]" as to whether or not the Blue Jays play Lawrie at second base upon his return to the majors.

Brett Lawrie a stellar add right now


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/10/2013) Blue Jays third baseman (second baseman??) Brett Lawrie has been tearing up the minor leagues on his rehab assignment.

In seven games, he's hitting .318 with a double, home run, stolen base, five runs scored and six walks. The 23-year-old also started at second base Tuesday, and manager John Gibbons hasn't ruled out playing Lawrie there when he returns. Lawrie began his minor league career at second base, playing 244 games there in 2009 and 2010. 

Second base eligibility would be a huge boost to Lawrie's sagging value. While he had a stellar minor-league career and made some noise with his 2011 debut, Lawrie was a bit of a disappointment in 2012, though he put up a respectable .273 average with 26 doubles and 13 steals. He was a mess in his first 37 games this season (.209 average with five home runs and two steals) before going on the DL.

But Lawrie has a ton of talent and could be a nice Fantasy asset for the second half. Owned in 63 percent of leagues, he may be available in some standard 12-team Points leagues as a free agent, but I wouldn't hesitate to offer some end-of-the-bench players in a buy-low attempt for Lawrie. 


Brett Lawrie could move to second


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2013) Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie could see some time at second base once he returns, according to Sportsnet. 

Manager John Gibbons admitted it's a strategy he's discussed. If the move were to happen, Maicer Izturis and Mark DeRosa would play third, with an occasional assist from Edwin Encarnacion. Gibbons cautioned that, while the team is thinking about the move, it's not a guarantee yet. 

Lawrie is hitting .209/.268/.374 in 139 at-bats in the majors. 


Brett Lawrie looks good with Triple-A


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2013) Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie moved his rehab from Double-A New Hampshire to Triple-A Buffalo Tuesday and started at second base against Syracuse. He's getting an extended look at second during the assignment, MLB.com reports. 

Lawrie (ankle) looked like he's ready to return to the Blue Jays, going 2 for 4 as the No. 3 hitter. He homered in the sixth inning (two-run shot), singled and stole a base. 

Lawrie went 3 for 9 (.333) with Double-A New Hampshire with four walks and three runs scored. He has said he hopes to return before the All-Star break. 

Toronto is "unlikely" to play Lawrie at second once he's activated.
