TORONTO – Shortly after 11 oclock on Saturday morning, Brett Lawrie
wandered into manager John Gibbons office for a brief conversation. Nevin Lawson Jersey .
There were two topics: the status of Lawries injured right hamstring and
where he would play when he returns to the lineup.
Gibbons confirmed Lawrie will sometimes play second base.
"Hes got no problem with it," said Gibbons. "He basically said, hey,
whatever the boys need. I mean, hes here to win. Thats the name of the
game and like I said, I think it makes us better."
Lawrie was less enthused but reiterated what he has said before and what
Gibbons offered on Saturday morning.
"Just doing it for the team," said Lawrie.
The differences between second base and third base are many. The
footwork is different. The timing is different – third base is called
the "hot corner" for a reason.
Lawrie has history at second base, having played the position in
Milwaukees minor league system. Part of his hesitation for making the
switch is grounded in the pride he takes in how hard hes worked to
become a gold glove calibre third baseman, doing so almost entirely at
the major league level.
"I worked my butt off to get where Im at," Lawrie told TSN.ca on Friday.
"Im not saying its not going to help the team. Im here to do what it is
to help the team but I worked my butt off to be that good at third base
and continue to do what Im doing. I work every day over there. Still
continuing to get my work in and second base, it is what it is, man, its
not what Im here to do. I worked my butt off to do what I do out
Lawrie has appeared in four games at second base this season. He started
at second six times last year. His limited time there doesnt make him
feel more comfortable.
"Not necessarily," said Lawrie. "You got to have comfort to do it a
bunch of times in a row and Ive only done it for a couple of games but
you need a few games under your belt to make it comfortable."
Out of action since leaving in the fourth inning of Monday nights game
in Philadelphia, Lawrie is nearing a return. Its been a daily process,
as each day Lawrie has been intensifying the demands on his hamstring.
"He came out and ran and felt pretty good today," said Gibbons. "What
were going to do is were going to make him do it one more day and if all
is well hell be ready to go on Monday. So I would expect to see him on
If Lawrie plays on Monday night in the series finale against the Angels,
expect to see him at third. Los Angeles is scheduled to start
left-hander C.J. Wilson. Juan Francisco is a left-handed batter. The
realignment is aimed at keeping Francisco in the lineup against
right-handers, against whom he has greater success.
"Weve been watching him ever since he got here," said Gibbons. "Hes a
pretty good player. Hes off to a great start. I dont think wed be doing
our job if we just decided to sit him and not take advantage of what hes
Put together Reyes, Cabrera, Bautista, Encarnacion, Lind, Navarro,
Francisco, Lawrie and Rasmus and its a potent, long lineup one through
nine. If someone is struggling, the next guy can pick him up.
If the Blue Jays can keep everyone healthy for a period of time, it
would give Gibbons a bona fide American League East lineup.
"A good whatever division lineup," said Gibbons.

the hands of Rich Cho after Rod Higgins has stepped down as the teams
