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

May 25 - 6:14 PM

Brett Lawrie is out of the A's lineup again Monday.

Lawrie hasn't played since Friday, and A's manager Bob Melvin acknowledged Sunday that the 25-year-old is "a little banged up." Max Muncy will handle the hot corner in Monday's afternoon opener against the Tigers.
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.
May 24 - 9:42 AM

Brett Lawrie is not in the Athletics starting lineup on Saturday.

Max Muncy is getting the call at the hot corner and batting fifth in the A's lineup against opposing right-hander Nathan Karns. Lawrie should be back in there for Sunday's series finale. The 25-year-old is hitting .279/.310/.364 with two homers and 16 RBI in 43 games.
May 23 - 11:58 AM

Brett Lawrie delivered a go-ahead two-run double in Friday's 7-5 win over the Rangers.

After being quiet for the first seven innings of the game, the Athletics' offense erupted for seven runs in the eighth against the Rangers' bullpen. Lawrie was involved in a close call on a check-swing against Neftali Feliz, but he stayed in the at-bat and poked an opposite-field double to put the Athletics in front. The 25-year-old has driven in nine runs over his last five games.
May 2 - 12:35 AM

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run to help the Athletics beat the Angels on Tuesday.

Lawrie added a big blow in the first inning against Jered Weaver, breaking a 2-2 tie with a three-run home run. The 25-year-old third baseman has had trouble gaining traction at the plate thus far, as the homer was only his second of the season. He's also hitting a meager .224/.259/.329 with 10 RBI.
Apr 29 - 12:20 AM

Brett Lawrie is not in the Athletics starting lineup for Saturday's contest against the Astros.

Max Muncy, who had his contract purchased on Saturday, will be making his major league debut and starting in his place at third base. Expect Lawrie to return to the hot corner on Sunday.
Apr 25 - 3:03 PM

Brett Lawrie went 0-for-4 with two more strikeouts in the loss to the Angels on Thursday.

While Josh Donaldson was delivering his fourth homer and sixth double for the Blue Jays. Lawrie thus far has three extra-base hits, four RBI and a 23/2 K/BB ratio in 65 at-bats. The A's might want to give Mark Canha a look at third base if this keeps up.
Apr 23 - 9:50 PM

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's win against the Astros.

Lawrie padded the Athletics' lead to 4-0 at the time with a second-inning solo home run off of Scott Feldman. It's only the third extra-base hit, and the first home run, in 35 plate appearances for Lawrie to start the season.
Apr 13 - 11:17 PM

Brett Lawrie went 3-for-5 in Wednesday's 10-0 win over the Rangers.

Lawrie doubled once, singled twice and scored a run in the contest. The life-long Blue Jay relocated to Oakland in the off-season. Lawrie slashed .247/.301/.421 in 2014 and has seen his batting average drop in each of the last three seasons. He hit .273 in 2012. The third-baseman will look to turn around that trend and having more games like Wednesday's, or more at-bats against Ross Detwiler anyway, should certainly help.
Apr 9 - 1:50 AM

Brett Lawrie walked, swatted a pair of home runs, and drove in four runs in four trips to the plate on Monday against the Rockies.

Lawrie ripped a solo home run to left in the fifth inning against Ryan Arrowood, then added a three-run shot in the sixth off of LaTroy Hawkins. He now has four dingers on the spring along with 10 RBI and a .244 average (10-for-41). Lawrie is hoping to rack up in excess of 500 at-bats this season, which would be a first in the majors for him.
Mar 30 - 7:42 PM

Brett Lawrie is out of the Athletics' Cactus League lineup for the second straight day Tuesday.

Lawrie felt a little sore after doing extra defensive work on Sunday, so the Athletics don't want to take any chances given his history. Consider him day-to-day right now.
Mar 24 - 1:13 PM

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run Saturday against the Reds.

Lawrie gave the A's an early 3-0 lead when he took Raisel Iglesias deep with two runners on base in the first inning for his first Cactus League home run. He's had an unremarkable spring, now batting just .179 (5-for-28). The Athletics hope he'll be able to be both healthy and productive, something Lawrie has had trouble with over his career.
Mar 21 - 7:02 PM

Brett Lawrie went 0-for-2 in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Mariners, dropping his spring average to .154 (2-for-13).

The Athletics' new third baseman, acquired in a November trade with the Blue Jays, has been slow out of the gate. In an injury-shortened 2014 campaign, Lawrie hit just .247. The A's are hoping the 25-year-old can finally live up to his hype as a former first-round pick.
