It appears as if Brett Lawrie is making progress. The Blue Jays’ 3B finally got into some rehab play earlier this week at the single-A level. Lawrie has been out since May 27 with a sprained ankle.
The Jays figure Lawrie will need two weeks of minor league action before rejoining the big club. He’ll likely play a couple games in single-A and then transition to triple-A much like Jose Reyes did during his rehab.
Lawrie got off to a dreadful start after being rushed through a previous rehab assignment to start his season. He hit only .209 in 37 games. The Jays do, however, miss Lawrie’s glove at 3B. And with no Melky Cabrera in the line up (put on DL last Thursday), I’m sure the Jays will welcome the 23-year-old’s bat.
