Jays' Brett Lawrie to miss rest of season with strained oblique
Toronto third baseman Brett Lawrie played in just 70 games this season.
The Blue Jays on Tuesday moved third baseman Brett Lawrie to the 60-day disabled list, thus ending his 2014 season. Lawrie has been sidelined since Aug. 5 with a strained oblique. Earlier this year, he missed 36 games because of a fractured index finger.
For the time being, Danny Valencia and Juan Francisco figure to continue sharing third base duties in Lawrie's absence.
Lawrie, 24, ends his season with a line of .247/.301/.421 (100 OPS+) and 12 homers in 70 games played. He'll be arbitration-eligible for the first time this upcoming offseason.
