Toronto transferred infielder Brett Lawrie from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list, which means he won’t be eligible to return to the active roster before the season ends.
Lawrie has been out since early August with a strained oblique muscle and hit just .247 with 12 homers and a .722 OPS in 70 games before going on the DL.
Since a big 43-game debut as a 21-year-old in 2011 he’s hit a combined .261 with a .721 OPS in three seasons while missing 37, 55, and now 92 games.
