Brett Lawrie went 3-for-5 with a grand slam off the Rangers' Wandy Rodriguez on Wednesday.

It's Lawrie's third career slam. He's 9-for-18 lifetime with the bases loaded. After a brutal start, he's been a fine regular for the A's this year, even if he still suffers in comparison to Josh Donaldson. He's hitting .292 with seven homers and 35 RBI.

Brett Lawrie went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles in Monday's win over the Padres.

Lawrie capped off the Athletics' three-run third inning with an RBI single, then added another one in the fifth inning to push the lead to 4-1. Lawrie had been batting .120 (3-for-25) since June 6, as he's been bothered by a back issue. He has a .279/.313/.403 triple-slash line on the season with six home runs and 25 RBI.

Brett Lawrie (back) will return to the lineup on Sunday.

Lawrie started Saturday's game on the bench but appeared as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning. Despite dealing with back issues off and on, Lawrie has only missed four games this season. Lawrie's .291 average is his highest since 2011. That was his rookie year.
Jun 6 - 7:55 PM

Brett Lawrie is not in the Athletics lineup on Saturday due to a recurring back issue.

The injury isn't believed to be serious, but manager Bob Melvin wanted to give him another day to make sure it doesn't worsen. Max Muncy is at the hot corner.
Jun 6 - 2:20 PM

Brett Lawrie went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored Friday against the Red Sox.

It was his fourth straight multi-hit game and his fifth in his last six games. Lawrie has pretty much abandoned his plate discipline with a 58/7 K/BB ratio, but he has pulled his batting average up to .291 to go along with five home runs and 23 RBI.
Jun 5 - 10:14 PM

Brett Lawrie delivered a pair of doubles against the Tigers on Wednesday.

Lawrie is batting .277, though it's with a lower OPS than usual because of his lack of power (four homers and 10 doubles in 195 at-bats) and extreme lack of walks (seven). The A's will still take it, given how awful he looked a month and a half ago.
Jun 3 - 9:59 PM

Brett Lawrie hit his fourth homer Friday in the win over the Yankees.

Lawrie is batting .296 in May after coming in at .229 in April. Still, we'd be more encouraged if it didn't come with a 27/3 K/BB ratio. Incidentally, that's identical to his mark from April. He actually has a 44/2 K/BB ratio against righties and a 10/4 K/BB ratio versus lefties.
May 30 - 1:43 AM

Brett Lawrie (back) went 0-for-4 at the plate in his return to the lineup Tuesday.

May 27 - 8:15 AM

Brett Lawrie (back) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday.

Lawrie has missed the last three games with back tightness, but he's apparently made improvement. The third baseman is batting .279/.310/.364 with two home runs and 16 RBI this season for the A's.

May 25 - 1:14 PM

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that Brett Lawrie is "a little banged up" and he plans to rest the third baseman for a second straight day Sunday.

The skipper wouldn't reveal exactly what Lawrie is dealing with, but whatever it is appears to be minor. He should be back in there on Monday.
