Brett Lawrie (finger) took batting practice on the field at the Blue Jays' complex in Dunedin, Florida, on Wednesday.
Lawrie also took ground balls during his work on the field, and Jays manager John Gibbons said Lawrie may be ready to begin a rehab assignment by this weekend. It's a nice development for the infielder, who was believed to still be a few weeks away from returning. He could rejoin the club in early August after a short rehab assignment if things continue to progress. Jul 30 - 8:22 PM

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

Lawrie's ninth blast of the season, which came off of Al Alburquerque, boosts his slash line to .239/.286/.418 along with 34 RBI.
