The 23-year-old native of Langley, B.C., has been out of the Blue Jays’ lineup since suffering a left high ankle sprain sliding into second base in a game against the Atlanta Braves on May 27.
Lawrie, who started the season on the disabled list this year with an oblique injury, is batting .209 with five home runs and 14 RBI in only 37 games this season.
Since first being called up to the majors in 2011, the young Canadian has played third base, yet there is speculation that he could switch over to second for the Blue Jays as the team recently experimented with him at that position in Buffalo.
#Bisons were rained out last night, so last AAA game Lawrie had 4 Ks and a walk. For his rehab, hit .282/.404/.436 in 47 PA. #Bluejays#Jays
