Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Shut down after HBP
Lawlar will miss the next 6-to-8 weeks after being struck by a pitch Friday and suffering a fractured left scapula, Sam Dykstra of MLB.com reports.
This injury shouldn't impact Lawlar's availability for the start of spring training, but it's certainly disappointing to see his fall season cut short. He was playing great ball in the Arizona Fall League prior to the injury, as he was batting .278 with two home runs, seven RBI, four stolen bases and nine runs scored across 11 contests with Salt River....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Flashing in Arizona Fall League
Lawlar hit just .212/.299/.353 over 20 games in Double-A to wrap up the 2022 regular season, but he's impressed through six contests in the Arizona Fall League, smashing two homers and stealing two bases with a 7:7 BB:K.
It's well worth keeping in mind the context of Lawlar's small sample of Double-A struggles -- this is a 20-year-old kid who was on his second promotion of the season after opening in Single-A. Lawlar's overall line is a far more accurate indicator of his potential: .303/.401/.509 with 16 home runs, 39 steals and a 57:115 BB:K. He'll need to clip that strikeout rate a bit and show more power in the high minors, but Lawlar certainly looks the part of a future All-Star. Arizona probably won't rush him to the big leagues, so look for him to spend much of 2023 in Double-A, with a mid-to-late-season promotion to Triple-A if he excels as expected.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Rises to Double-A
The Diamondbacks promoted Lawlar from High-A Hillsboro to Double-A Amarillo on Tuesday.
With outfielder Corbin Carroll soon expected to receive a promotion from Triple-A Reno to the big club, Lawlar will become the Diamondbacks' top prospect in the minors before long. The righty-hitting shortstop, who went 1-for-4 with a run scored in his debut for Amarillo on Tuesday, is now at his fourth affiliate of 2022 after slashing .288/.385/.477 with three home runs and 13 stolen bases in 130 plate appearances at Hillsboro....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Adjusting to High-A
Lawlar went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored for High-A Hillsboro on Saturday.
After initial struggles following his promotion from Single-A Visalia, Lawlar has found a groove with multiple hits in three of the last seven games for the High-A affiliate. He's 9-for-32 (.281) with four doubles, two RBI and six runs scored during that stretch.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Added to Futures game
Lawlar has been added to the All-Star Futures Game as an injury replacement, Jose M. Romero of the Arizona Republic reports.
Lawlar joins fellow Arizona prospect Corbin Carroll as participants in the showcase of minor-league talent. He's batting .332 in the minors this season, with most of that work at Single-A Visalia. Lawlar was promoted to High-A Hillsboro last week and is batting .095 (2-for-21) through six games for the Hops.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Gets call to High-A
The Diamondbacks promoted Lawlar from Single-A Visalia to High-A Hillsboro on Monday.
He made his debut for Hillsboro later Monday, going 1-for-4 with a stolen base, an RBI and a run. The 20-year-old was bumped up a level after he slashed .365/.461/.623 with eight home runs and 23 stolen bases across 191 plate appearances with Visalia. Regarded as one of the top prospects in the lower levels of the minors, Lawlar is an excellent asset in dynasty leagues and should make a push for the majors by the 2024 season, if not sooner....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Back in action for Single-A club
Lawlar (back) has gone 5-for-8 with a triple, two doubles, five runs, three RBI and a stolen base in two games for Single-A Visalia since returning from the 7-day injured list Wednesday.
Lawlar has resumed raking for Visalia since rejoining the full-season affiliate following a six-game rehab assignment in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League. Before he was shut down for about three weeks with the back injury, Lawlar slashed .352/.461/.600 over 33 games at Single-A.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Collects five hits in rehab game
Lawlar (back) went 5-for-5 with a double, a triple, two RBI and three runs scored for the Diamondbacks' affiliate in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League on Tuesday.
This was Lawlar's second rehab game in the ACL -- he was hitless in two at-bats and hit by a pitch Monday -- in his bid to get back to Single-A Visalia. He started at shortstop and played seven of eight innings in the field before being taken out for the final frame. The shortstop appeared to be unaffected by the back injury that landed him on the injured list May 25. Prior to his injury, Lawlar sported a .352/.461/.600 slash line with seven home runs, three triples, four doubles, 30 runs scored, 21 RBI, and 18 stolen bases over 33 games. A return to the Rawhide is expected by the end of the week.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Set to return
Lawlar (back) is expected to play in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League beginning Monday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Lawlar will play several games there before returning to Single-A Visalia, where he batted .352 with seven home runs and 18 stolen bases prior to hitting the injured list. The shortstop experienced discomfort in his back last month, which was eventually diagnosed as a benign bone growth on the third rib of his right side. Lawlar was examined by an interventional radiologist and was cleared to resume playing. If the issue does recur, it could be addressed with an ablation procedure.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Evaluated for back injury
Lawlar was placed on the 7-day injured list with a back injury Thursday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
The issue was described as "mid back soreness," and Lawlar was further evaluated in Phoenix on Thursday. He is also set to meet with a team physician Friday. It's a tough break for one of the most exciting prospects in the league, as he's hitting .352/.461/.600 with seven homers and 18 steals through 33 games with Single-A Visalia.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Double-digit hit streak
Lawlar went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a second run scored for Single-A Visalia on Saturday.
Lawlar served as the designated hitter Saturday and lived up to the title. He hit a solo homer in the first inning and followed with a single in the third and fourth innings. The 19-year-old shortstop extended his hitting streak to 10 games, during which he's 20-for-44 (.455) with seven extra-base hits, 10 RBI and 11 runs scored.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Raking in Single-A
Lawlar is hitting .336/.452/.555 with six homers and 17 steals through 29 games for Single-A Visalia this year.
The No. 6 overall pick in last year's draft, Lawlar had an abbreviated 2021 due to August shoulder surgery, but he's been back with a vengeance this year. Still just 19, Lawlar has flashed a spectacular bat and baserunning ability. Less spectacular: his fielding, as he's made 12 errors in 23 games at shortstop, good for a horrendous .864 fielding percentage. If he doesn't improve on that front, a move to second base (or perhaps the outfield) may be forthcoming, but scouts have generally been bullish on his ability to stick at shortstop, so that can't be ruled out. Arizona will probably bring him along fairly steadily, but there's a lot to like about the profile.... See More ... See Less
