Brett Lawrie homered, stole a base and scored two runs in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

Lawrie hit a solo home run, his third of the season, in the fourth inning before walking to lead off the seventh. He promptly stole second base -- his second steal of the year -- and came around to score on an Austin Jackson RBI single. In his first year with the Sox, Lawrie is hitting .267/.347/.444 with nine RBI and 14 runs scored.

Brett Lawrie went deep for the second time this season as the White Sox lost to the Orioles on Friday.

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.

Lawrie has now hit in six straight games, with Saturday's blast being his first of the year. The infielder is batting .286/.318/.405 with three RBI and five runs scored in 11 games.
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.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 11:44:00 AM

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics are close to trading Brett Lawrie to the White Sox.

The White Sox are expected to receive two minor league players in return, though the specifics aren't known. Lawrie was expected to move since the addition of Jed Lowrie last month and Chicago has made it a priority to acquire a third baseman, so it's a natural fit. Assuming the deal is completed, the White Sox will have him under team control for two years.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 08:41:00 AM

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle hears that the Angels "don't have a ton of interest" in Brett Lawrie.

The Halos have been one of the clubs linked to the infielder, but it appears their interest is mild. The A's are expected to trade Lawrie following the acquisition of Jed Lowrie, with the Indians, Tigers and White Sox among the interested parties.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 09:44:00 PM

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have talked to the Athletics about Brett Lawrie.

The A's are expected to trade Lawrie after the acquisition of Jed Lowrie, and the Angels make sense as a landing spot since they have a hole at third base and also potentially second base. The Indians, Tigers and White Sox are among the other clubs that have also showed interest in Lawrie over the last couple of weeks.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 04:24:00 PM

According to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Indians, Tigers, and White Sox have expressed interest in trading for A's infielder Brett Lawrie.

Slusser wrote last month that the Athletics are likely to deal Lawrie this winter following the acquisition of Jed Lowrie, and there appears to be a nice market developing for the 25-year-old. Danny Valencia may also be on the block for Oakland. Lawrie batted just .260/.299/.407 in 2015 and rated poorly on defense, but he does have some attractive tools and two more years of club control.
