The Blue Jays announced this evening that infielder Brett Lawrie has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. He’ll make his return Tuesday for the start of a big series against the first-place Orioles.
Lawrie has been sidelined since he suffered a broken right index finger when he was hit by a pitch on June 22. He went 4-for-10 (.400) with a double and two walks over three minor league rehab games with High-A Dunedin. The Blue Jays had him play both second and third base during his rehab stint, so he figures to alternate between the positions upon his return.
Lawrie, 24, is just .244 with a .299 on-base percentage this season, but he has produced 12 home runs and 38 RBI over just 69 games.
