Blue Jays transferred INF Brett Lawrie from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.
Lawrie landed on the disabled list in early August with an oblique strain and this move rules him out for the rest of the season. The 24-year-old batted .247/.301/.421 with 12 home runs and 38 RBI over 70 games this season and his inability to stay healthy has surely played a part in why he has failed to meet expectations since his impressive showing in 2011.

Brett Lawrie (oblique) still has no timetable for a return.

"When he’ll be back, I’ve got no idea," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. Lawrie isn't even with the team, as Gibbons said he's currently at his home in Arizona. While Gibbons said Lawrie is feeling better, he's still nowhere near a return. Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos previously said he doesn't expect Lawrie back before September.

Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos has ruled out Brett Lawrie (oblique) until September.

Lawrie landed on the disabled list Thursday with his third oblique strain in the past two years. While he's been ruled out for August, there's no clear timetable for his return.
Aug 7 - 4:06 PM

Blue Jays placed INF Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique strain.

Lawrie suffered the oblique injury Tuesday in his first game back from a fractured index finger. The 24-year-old infielder has appeared in just 70 of the Blue Jays' 115 games this season and will now miss most of August.
Aug 7 - 11:55 AM

Brett Lawrie's injury may involve his oblique and not his back as initially reported.

Lawrie had an MRI taken of his back after leaving Tuesday's game with some tightness, but the results were sent to Florida doctors for comparison with previous MRIs taken when Lawrie was suffering from an oblique injury in 2012. The doctors there and the team doctors in Toronto will compare and contrast the two images to get a feel for what Lawrie is looking at this time around. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons has been coy in divulging any information about the nature or extent of Lawrie's injury, so it's tough to guess how long he might be out at this point. More should become known on Thursday.
Aug 6 - 11:03 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons does not expect Brett Lawrie to land on the disabled list.

Lawrie left Tuesday's game against the Orioles with tightness in his lower back and underwent an MRI, the results of which have not been released. The 24-year-old infielder is day-to-day for now. Lawrie has appeared in just 70 of Toronto's 114 games this season.
Aug 6 - 4:32 PM

Brett Lawrie will undergo an MRI on his lower back.

Lawrie admitted to feeling something "grabbing" in his back earlier Tuesday and eventually took himself out of the game when the issue didn't go away. The good news is that he and the Blue Jays don't think it's serious. We'll find out Wednesday.
Aug 5 - 11:12 PM

Brett Lawrie left Tuesday's game versus the Orioles with lower back tightness.

Lawrie was playing in his first game after missing six weeks with a fractured index finger. The Blue Jays say his exit was precautionary, so he can safely be considered day-to-day. Still it's obviously frustrating for Toronto and for fantasy owners.
Aug 5 - 8:09 PM

Brett Lawrie will start at third base in his return from the disabled list Tuesday.

Lawrie played both third base and second base during his minor league rehab assignment, so he still figures to alternate between both positions. The 24-year-old has been sidelined for the past six weeks with a fractured index finger.
Aug 5 - 3:50 PM

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

A corresponding move will be made prior to Tuesday's game. Lawrie picked up four hits in 10 at-bats during a brief rehab assignment, and that was enough to convince the Jays that he was ready. He missed the last six weeks with a fractured index finger. Lawrie is expected to play both third and second base for Toronto.
Aug 4 - 9:58 PM

Brett Lawrie (finger) will be activated by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

It's not clear which position he'll play, as Lawrie has been used at second and third base during his rehab assignment. Regardless, it's obviously good news and a bit unanticipated, as Lawrie hadn't been expected to be activated until later this week. He returns to a .244/.299/.419 batting line with 12 homers and 38 RBI.
Aug 4 - 7:25 PM

Brett Lawrie (finger) played nine innings at third base on Sunday at High-A Dunedin.

Lawrie has also been seeing action at second base since joining Dunedin on Friday and will likely play both positions when he returns to Toronto. He's been out since June with a fractured index finger. The Blue Jays are not expected to activate him until later this week.
Aug 4 - 9:06 AM

Brett Lawrie (finger) went 1-for-3 with a walk and a pair of runs scored in his first minor league rehab game with High-A Dunedin on Friday.

He's expected to remain there for at least a week before the club makes a decision on an activation date. It remains unclear what position he will play with the Blue Jays once he is cleared to return.
Aug 1 - 9:29 PM

Brett Lawrie (finger) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Dunedin on Friday.

Lawrie is expected to be there for at least a week and will play both third and second base before the club makes a decision on where to put him once activated. He's been out since late June with a fractured right index finger.
Aug 1 - 5:57 PM

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.
