  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Sent down Friday

    Lawrence was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

    Lawrence struggled over two major-league appearances in July, posting an 11.88 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 8.1 innings. After giving up five runs in 2.2 innings as the primary pitcher Thursday against the Mariners, he'll head back to the minors. It's possible that he rejoins the Blue Jays as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen at some point.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Sunk by Mariners

    Lawrence worked as the primary pitcher Thursday against Seattle, allowing five runs on seven hits over 2.2 innings. He did not factor in the decision.

    Anthony Banda opened the game for Toronto and was charged with two runs while notching just one out. That got him tagged with the loss and allowed Lawrence to escape with a no-decision despite his own ugly performance. Lawrence gave up a run in the second and four in the third before departing having tossed 52 pitches. The right-hander was again strung by the long ball -- he yielded two Thursday and has now served up five homers over his past 12.1 frames. Lawrence has bounced back and forth between Triple-A and the majors this season, and he could be headed back down following Thursday's poor outing.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Lines up as primary pitcher

    Lawrence is expected to serve as Toronto's primary pitcher behind opener Anthony Banda against Seattle on Thursday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Kevin Gausman (ankle) is unable to start Thursday, so the Blue Jays will instead turn to Banda and Lawrence to cover the early innings in the series opener versus the Mariners. Lawrence surrendered six runs over 5.2 innings during his previous appearance for Toronto on July 2, when he served as long relief in a doubleheader.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Recalled from Buffalo

    Lawrence was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

    Lawrence was sent down Sunday after he gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six in 5.2 relief innings against the Rays on Saturday. However, the right-hander should serve as a multi-inning relief option for Toronto once again after right-hander Trent Thornton was optioned to Triple-A on Wednesday.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Sent back to Triple-A

    The Blue Jays optioned Lawrence to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

    Lawrence was up with Toronto for just one day after he was designated as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader with the Rays. With Kevin Gausman exiting after two innings in his start in Game 1 with an ankle injury, Lawrence was called upon in long relief and was the pitcher of record in Toronto's 6-2 loss. He was charged with six runs -- all earned -- on seven hits and one walk while striking out six over 5.2 innings out of the bullpen.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Called up as 27th man

    Lawrence was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to serve as the 27th man during Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays.

    Lawrence was sent to the minors in mid-June, but he'll be available to provide length out of the Blue Jays' bullpen during Saturday's twin bill. Over his first three major-league appearances of the year, he's posted a 3.68 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 7.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Returns to Triple-A

    Lawrence was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

    Lawrence joined the big-league club and pitched four relief innings Friday against the Yankees, and he'll return to the minors in favor of a fresh arm. He's given up three earned runs on six hits with three strikeouts and two walks over 7.1 innings for Toronto this season.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Officially recalled by Toronto

    Lawrence was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

    The Blue Jays used several relievers during Thursday's loss to the Orioles, so Lawrence will be available as a long reliever in the big-league bullpen rather than making his scheduled start in Buffalo on Friday. Jeremy Beasley was sent down to make room on the active roster.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Slated to rejoin big-league bullpen

    Lawrence is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Lawrence was slated to start for the Triple-A club Friday, but he'll instead provide length out of the Blue Jays' bullpen since the team used several relievers during Thursday's blowout loss to the Orioles. The 34-year-old made two relief appearances for Toronto in early May and allowed just one run in 3.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Headed back to minors

    Lawrence was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Lawrence was called up Wednesday, and he pitched 3.1 innings across two appearances, allowing one earned run. The Blue Jays had to drop a player from the active roster after a doubleheader Saturday, and Lawrence will return to the minors as a result. He should contribute to the big-league bullpen again at some point this season.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Added to big-league roster

    The Blue Jays selected Lawrence's contract from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Lawrence has performed well out of the Buffalo rotation this season, logging a 2.82 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in 22.1 innings over four starts with the affiliate. He'll settle into the bullpen for the Blue Jays, with his addition giving the big club a fresh arm who's capable of providing some length. Infielder Gosuke Katoh was designated for assignment to clear room on the 40-man roster for Lawrence.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Sent to MiLB camp

    The Blue Jays reassigned Lawrence to their minor-league camp Monday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Lawrence is expected to report to Triple-A Buffalo to begin the 2022 campaign. The 34-year-old last saw action in the majors with the Mariners in 2018, covering 23.1 innings over 11 relief appearances while posting a 7.33 ERA and 1.63 WHIP.

  • Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Back with Jays on MiLB deal

    Lawrence re-signed Monday with the Blue Jays on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to major-league spring training.

    Lawrence made 39 big-league appearances (two starts) between the Blue Jays and Mariners during the 2071 and 2018 seasons, then spent at year overseas in Japan before bouncing around between affiliated and independent ball the past two seasons. He rejoined the Toronto organization last May and spent time between Triple-A Buffalo and Double-A New Hampshire, submitting a 4.40 ERA and 1.12 WHIP across 86 innings. The Blue Jays likely view the 34-year-old as quality starting pitching depth in the upper levels of the minors, but he'll face an uphill battle to resurface in the big leagues at any point in 2022.

  • Twins' Casey Lawrence: Added to player pool

    The Twins added Lawrence to their 60-man roster pool Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Lawrence joined the Twins for spring training as a non-roster invitee, but he wasn't present with the team for summer camp after he wasn't among the players initially included in the 60-man pool. Now that he becomes the 59th member of the pool, Lawrence will report to the team's alternate training site and bolster the organization's pitching depth.

  • Twins' Casey Lawrence: Returns stateside with Twins

    Lawrence signed a minor-league deal with the Twins on Tuesday.

    Lawrence has thrown 78.2 big-league innings, struggling to a 6.64 ERA. He spent 2019 with the Hiroshima Carp of the NPB, posting an unremarkable 4.80 ERA over 110.2 innings.

  • Casey Lawrence: Officially heads to Japan

    Lawrence agreed to a contract with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp to play in Japan in 2019.

    As expected, Lawrence will head overseas to play in Nippon Professional Baseball after being granted his release by the Mariners in late November. Across 11 relief appearances in 2018, he posted a 7.33 ERA and 1.63 WHIP.

  • Casey Lawrence: To play ball overseas

    Lawrence has been granted his release from the Mariners, TJ Cotterill of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Lawrence appeared in 11 games out of the bullpen for Seattle a season ago, posting a 7.33 ERA and 1.63 WHIP with 14 strikeouts across 23.1 innings. He'll look for better results overseas, likely in Japan.

  • Mariners' Casey Lawrence: Credited with win in combined shutout

    Lawrence (1-0) picked up the win in Wednesday's 9-0 victory over the Astros, tossing three scoreless innings of relief and allowing one hit and two walks while striking out one.

    The 30-year-old entered the game after opener Matt Festa gave Seattle a clean first inning, and five other relievers then combined to preserve Lawrence's first big-league win of the year. Given his 7.08 ERA through 20.1 innings for the M's this year, don't expect much fantasy value from Lawrence over the final days of the regular season.

  • Mariners' Casey Lawrence: Called up by Mariners

    Lawrence was recalled by Seattle on Tuesday.

    The 30-year-old has pitched 17.1 innings for the Mariners this season, getting knocked around for an 8.31 ERA. He'll be a low-leverage relief arm for the Mariners down the stretch.

  • Mariners' Casey Lawrence: Optioned to Triple-A

    Lawrence was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday.

    Lawrence spent five days with the Mariners, allowing three runs in three innings in his only appearance. His 8.31 ERA through 17.1 major-league innings suggests he's unlikely to be a fantasy asset if and when he returns to the big leagues. The move makes room for Robinson Cano's return from his suspension.
