Great news for Brett Lawrie owners, as he returned to the field today and played 4 innings of extended spring training ball. The great news is that there were no reported setbacks and he went 2-2 with a walk in three at-bats. General Manager Alex Anthopoulos stated earlier this week that they would love Lawrie to log 20 at bats before he returns to the big league lineup. Expect Lawrie to continue to play daily so long as he responded well to his first outing, as there can be delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) that does not appear for 24-36 hours after a game/practice.
Lawrie could return as early as next Friday as the Blue Jays open a series with the division rival New York Yankees if all goes according to plan. His return couldn’t come soon enough for the slumping 3-6 Blue Jays, who need a boost to their underperforming lineup.
Last season, Lawrie hit .273/.324/.405 with 11 home runs, 48 RBIs, and 13 stolen bases in 125 games.

(AP) -- The revamped starting staff of the Toronto Blue Jays has been a major flop. In fact, its only win didn't come from one of their big-name newcomers.
