Brett Lawrie hit a grand slam in the ninth inning to extend the lead, and the Blue Jays finished off the Twins 9-3 on Tuesday.
Lawrie's only hit of the game was a big one, as he sent a Jared Burton fastball deep into the Minnesota night to give the Jays some insurance runs. The homer was his third this season. Lawrie also had an RBI sacrifice fly earlier in the game, giving him five RBI total on the evening, and the five-RBI night was his first ever in the majors. Apr 16 - 12:18 AM

Brett Lawrie hit a two-run homer off Josh Zied in the seventh inning Wednesday as part of the Blue Jays' 7-3 win over the Astros.

The Jays had the lead at the time, but Lawrie pretty much put the game away with his show. It was the first extra-base of the year for the struggling third baseman, who entered the night 3-for-29 with one RBI. He is healthy, so better days are ahead.

Brett Lawrie went 0-for-3 with a walk as the Blue Jays defeated the Rays 3-0 on Wednesday.

Lawrie is now hitless in ten at-bats to begin the season. The former top prospect is expected to make strides with the bat after leaving plenty to be desired since making his big league debut in 2011.
Apr 2 - 10:24 PM

Brett Lawrie homered and doubles in the Blue Jays' 10-6 win over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Lawrie is 8-for-19 with two homers over his last five games, raising his average to .346. It looks like he'll bat sixth in between left-handed hitters Adam Lind and Colby Rasmus in the Toronto lineup, at least at the start of the season. He could move up if Jose Reyes has injury problems or Melky Cabrera struggles.

Brett Lawrie had a solo homer and a two-run single against the Rays on Friday.

The homer was his first in 40 at-bats this spring. Lawrie is hitting .350 and has struck out just twice all spring, the second of those coming two weeks ago. He's talented enough to take a real step forward this year and become an All-Star-type player at third base. However, he also remains one of the AL's biggest injury risks among position players.
Mar 21 - 4:26 PM

Brett Lawrie will not play on Saturday due to tightness in his hamstring.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons indicated that Lawrie wanted to give it a go, but the team wanted to play it cautiously and give him a day of rest. The 24-year-old was a disappointment during his injury-plagued 2013 campaign, but has been a popular post-hype sleeper in early fantasy drafts.
Mar 1 - 11:52 AM

Brett Lawrie finished the season with a productive afternoon, going 2-for-3 with an RBI, run scored, two walks and a double in Sunday's 7-6 loss to the Rays.

The native Canadian hit safely in his last four games and reached base eight times in 10 attempts on Saturday and Sunday. Lawrie, 23, slashed .254/.315/.397 with 11 homers, 46 RBI and nine steals in 107 games. He could be a popular post-hype selection in March fantasy drafts.

Despite a swollen mouth sustained from a hit by pitch in Friday's contest, Brett Lawrie is in the Blue Jays starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays.

Lawrie noted that he was very lucky that he didn't lose any teeth or require stitches after the incident. He'll hit in the second slot in the Jays lineup against Chris Archer on Saturday afternoon.

Brett Lawrie had a productive night at the plate, going 1-for-3 with a run scored, RBI and stolen base in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Rays.

The 23-year-old third baseman still hasn't quite delivered on the massive hype that surrounded him when he entered the league, but continues to show flashes of his massive talent. He's slashing .248/.304/.390 with 11 homers, 40 runs, 45 RBI and nine stolen bases in 105 games this season.

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in the Blue Jays' 7-2 win over the Yankees on Wednesday.

Lawrie's two-RBI double in the first inning started the scoring, and he later came around to score on an error. After a slow start the infielder has been on fire in August, batting .370 with 12 RBI and 14 runs scored. He's hit safely in 24 of 27 games this month.

Brett Lawrie connected for a two-run home run Friday against the Astros.

Finally healthy after his lingering ankle injury, Lawrie is hitting .351 with four home runs and 17 RBI over his last 31 games. His batting average has jumped from .199 to .262 during that time.
Fri, Aug 23, 2013 11:59:00 PM

Brett Lawrie finished a home run short of the cycle in Monday's 3-1 victory in Seattle.

Lawrie has collected four extra-base hits during his current eight-game hitting streak. That stretch has dragged his average to .233, up from .204. Lawrie has gone 15-for-45 (.333) since the Jays moved him back to third.

Brett Lawrie will play third base for the remainder of the season.

The Blue Jays experimented with Lawrie at second base for six games, but they've officially pulled the plug on that idea. It's possible he could be given another shot at the position next season should the club bring in a third baseman over the winter.

Brett Lawrie will start at second base in Saturday's game against the Orioles.

Lawrie has been exclusively a third baseman until now, but will make his first major league start at second base after playing there in each of his final three rehab games. It remains to be seen if he can handle the position defensively. The Blue Jays will likely go with a committee of Maicer Izturis and Mark DeRosa at third base.

Blue Jays activated 3B Brett Lawrie from the 15-day disabled list.

Lawrie has been sidelined since May 27 with a sprained left ankle. The Blue Jays were using him at second base during his rehab assignment, but it's not clear how he'll be used now that he's been activated from the DL. Munenori Kawasaki was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.
