Brett Lawrie hammered a pair of home runs Saturday in a loss to the Blue Jays.
The Pale Hose matched a team record with seven home runs on Saturday, though all of them were solo shots. Lawrie legged an inside-the-parker in the second inning before taking R.A. Dickey deep again in the fourth. He added an RBI single in the sixth for good measure. The 26-year-old is now on pace for 20 home runs, which would best the 16 he belted last season. Unfortunately he's hitting just .241 with 88 strikeouts in 278 at-bats. Jun 25 - 5:50 PM

Brett Lawrie filled up the box score in the first game of Monday’s doubleheader against the Indians by going 2-for-2 with a three-run homer, two walks, a stolen base, and two runs scored.

His fifth-inning blast against Mike Clevinger was a no-doubter, as it traveled an estimated 417 feet. Lawrie has had a quiet may, but he’s up to six homers, 19 RBI, and three steals through 44 games. With a hitter-friendly stadium as the backdrop, he’s capable of being a useful middle infield option in mixed fantasy leagues.

Brett Lawrie is not in the White Sox's starting lineup Thursday against the Astros.

It will be his first absence of the season. Lawrie could use a day to clear his head. He's been pressing lately with 13 strikeouts and only three hits in his last 25 at-bats. Carlos Sanchez will take over at second base and bat second.

Brett Lawrie hit a solo home run in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Orioles, the third consecutive game in which he has gone deep.

Lawrie smacked a solo home run off the soon-to-be-demolished Ubaldo Jimenez in the fourth inning. The tater was his fourth of the season. Three of the four dingers came in this weekend's series against the Orioles. In addition to that quartet of blasts, he has driven in 10 runs, scored 15 and hit to a triple-slash of .290/.377/.505. The 26-year-old second baseman has a chance to surpass the career-best 16 homers he launched in 2015.

In his first year with the Sox, Lawrie is hitting .267/.347/.444 with nine RBI and 14 runs scored.

His solo shot off Brad Brach in the seventh inning briefly pulled the White Sox even at 3-3, but wound up being the extent of their scoring. Lawrie finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .264/.340/.414 with two bombs and eight RBI on the season.
Apr 29 - 10:23 PM

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-3 and drove in a pair of runs on Friday, helping to lead the White Sox to a 5-0 victory over the Rangers.

Lawrie's two-run double in the sixth inning increased the White Sox advantage to 4-0 at the time and would prove to be more than enough support for Jose Quintana. Lawrie also drew a walk in the contest and is now hitting a solid .288/.364/.424 with six RBI on the young season.
Apr 22 - 11:25 PM

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.

Apr 16 - 9:56 PM

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Monday's win over the Twins.

The White Sox' 4-6 hitters did the damage in this one, as Todd Frazier, Melky Cabrera and Lawrie all picked up a couple hits apiece. Lawrie's RBI was his first hit of the season, and he's still looking for his first extra-base knock.
Apr 11 - 8:06 PM

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer Thursday against the Angels.

Lawrie is now up to three home runs on the spring. It mostly had to do with staying healthy for once, but the 26-year-old managed career-highs 16 home runs and 60 RBI last season with the Athletics. He’ll have to manage to stay on the field again, but there’s reason to believe he can surpass those numbers playing half of his games in The Cell. With his eligibility between second base and third base, he’s a nice late value pick in mixed leagues.
Mar 24 - 7:47 PM

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-3 with a solo homer Friday as the White Sox and Indians finished in a 5-5 tie in Cactus League action.

The White Sox had a major-league worst .580 OPS out of their second basemen in 2015, so it’s not going to take much for Lawrie to be an improvement. Health is always going to be an issue with him, but he slugged a career-high 16 home runs last season and should have a decent chance to repeat with the move to a more hitter-friendly ballpark.
Mar 4 - 6:50 PM

White Sox and 3B Brett Lawrie avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.125 million contract.

The Sox acquired Lawrie from the A's last month. The infielder, who played third base primarily in 2015, is expected to play second base with the Sox. Lawrie batted .260/.299/.407 with 16 homers and 60 RBI this past season.
Jan 14 - 6:38 PM

White Sox acquired 3B Brett Lawrie from the Athletics for RHP J.B. Wendelken and LHP Zack Erwin.

In 562 at-bats with the A's in 2015, Lawrie hit .260/.299/.407 with a career-high 16 homers and 60 RBI. The 562 AB's were the most the 25-year-old infielder has received in his five years as a major league player. The A's had a need to move Lawrie after they acquired Jed Lowrie in November. And the White Sox had a big hole at third base.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that the White Sox are "not quite ready to pull the trigger" on a trade with the Athletics for Brett Lawrie.

Slusser previously reported that the A's and White Sox were close to a deal. The two sides are still said to be working on it, but it's not quite at the finish line.
