Blue Jays place Brett Lawrie on the disabled list

Brett Lawrie exited Monday’s game with a sprained left ankle and now the Blue Jays have placed him on the disabled list.

Lawrie also spent part of April on the DL with a rib cage injury and has hit just .209 with five homers and a .642 OPS in 37 games when healthy enough to play. Mark DeRosa drew the start at third base in Lawrie’s absence yesterday, but the 38-year-old has hit just .206 as a part-timer this season and hasn’t topped a .750 OPS since way back in 2009.

If nothing else Lawrie will have plenty of time to make friends on Twitter now. His sister too.

    No surprise to anyone who saw the injury happen. Besides DeRosa, Izturis and Bautista can also play third base. Would not be surprised if Bautista saw time at third in the upcoming games in NL parks.

    Needing fresh arms in the pen, the Jays also demoted 2 pitchers who threw yesterday and called up three relief pitchers.

      Look for one of the Relief pitchers to be used tonight, and then get demoted for Andy Laroche. I would really like to see Jim Negrych called up, he can man 2B while Izturis or Bautista play at 3B.

        Makes sense to me.

    Me upon entering pharmacy: Where do you keep the douches?

    Pharmacist: Just over there, on the shelf

    Lawrie presumably responded to the news by throwing his helmet into an MRI machine and screaming for 45 minutes.

    And Lawrie’s not the worst of those pugilistic Beavermen either. I saw this headline and at first I thought it was an old Jodie Arias trial article, but….

      Holy hell am I going to get some good mileage out of that story. Thanks.

        De nada.

      Trapping local beavers takes skill and patience.

        They bit and scratched me up pretty good…but I was much younger then and could handle the loss of blood.

        how about eating beavers?

        That is confidential information.
