Brett Lawrie tweaked his hammie

Brett Lawrie left Monday’s Blue Jays-Phillies game with tightness in his right hamstring. He evidently suffered the injury while running to first base during a groundout in the top of the fourth inning. Lawrie is listed as day-to-day for now. Though, for the record, I can’t remember the last guy who left a game with a hamstring thing didn’t end up hitting the disabled list at some point or another.

On the season Lawrie is hitting a mere .229/.276/.407. Perhaps some time off will do him good.

    That’s what he gets for pointlessly hustling.

    – Robbie Cano and his two working “hammies”

      That was a slow grounder that he normally would have beaten or an infield hit.Once he realized that he had a problem, he wisely slowed down in order to prevent a serious injury.

      “I’d take Cano over Pedroia for durability.”

    Shoulda dove.

    Must’ve been all that 2nd base of late.

    Stop being an troll Craig. Lawrie has ben very productive this year. Take a look at his RBI stats and his home run stats. After a slow start to the season, he has upped his average significantl in recent weeks.

      I took a look. He’s gained 50 points on his BA in a few days. The guy was tearing up the pea patch over the last week to 10 days. With runners on? .333/.339/.593/.932 in 54 PAs.
      With RISP? Out of this world. They are cartoon numbers. He doesn’t need a rest at all. A rest to do what? Regress?

      Mr. Calcaterra’s post on Lawrie lacked any real depth

        Yep

    “On the season Lawrie is hitting a mere .229/.276/.407. Perhaps some time off will do him good.”

    Craig, a little perspective here: Over the last 7 games prior to last night, Lawrie has hit .467/.484/.667, so, no, some time off likely won’t do him good because his bat has been hot. In the same timeframe, Melky the ‘Roid Monsterâ„¢ (thanks Olney) has hit .300/.344/.533.

    Last night, Lawrie said the hammy had been bothering him for some time now, and it’s to the point where, if he doesn’t rest it, hell end up losing more time.

      So is it the turf that kills the Jays’ hammies? Seems like it.

      • nbjays - May 6, 2014 at 1:54 PM

        I dunno. The turf has been improved for this season and, besides Lawrie, the only person who has had a hammy issue is Jose Reyes, and he has a history of being fragile.

        He has been playing on the road in NL parks lately.

    It only hurts when he plays second base.

  7. proudlycanadian - May 6, 2014 at 5:21 PM

    He has been excellent in the games he played at second base. Great range and hot at the plate.
