Brett LawrieAs I wrote last night, it looked as if Brett Lawrie was getting closer and closer to the big leagues -- instead he's headed to a Las Vegas hospital to get a X-rays on his left hand, the National Post reports.

Lawrie was hit on the top of the left hand in the first inning of Tuesday's game against the Tucson Padres.

Earlier in the day, FoxSports.com's Ken Rosenthal tweeted that "signs point" to Lawrie being called up on Friday. That's uncertain now.

Before the Jays' game with the Indians, Jays general manger Alex Anthopoulos told reporters Lawrie was "close" to being called up. 

Lawrie was hitting .354/.413/.677 headed into the game, but was in his first season playing first base. He'd previously played second, and defense has never really been his strength. However, according to the National Post, Jays minor league infield coordinator Mike Mordecai's most recent report on Lawrie's defense was "glowing."

Jays had to wait on Lawrie until John McDonald is off I.R. and the bullpen is better rested.  The team is finishing up a homestand, so maybe the best time to call up Canadian-born Brett is just before the next series in Toronto.

He'll be ok, the kid is a tank. Maybe this delays the call-up a week or so but unless its a break he will be up here pretty soon. I hope its nothing too serious!

Jays waited too long, now he's hurt

Lawrie had no room to improve his hitting & TOR waited too long;

now he's hurt & the Jays GM can only blame himself.
