Brett Lawrie went 1-for-3 on Saturday with his 16th double of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has been reasonably productive for Oakland this year. He now has a .285 average with seven home runs and 35 RBI. More importantly he has been able to remain healthy and in the lineup, something that has given him trouble in the past.

Brett Lawrie came up with a huge game for the Athletics, finishing up at 3-for-5 from the plate with two singles and one grand slam (his seventh home run of the year). He finished with four RBI and one run scored himself with two strike outs.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has had a monster month so far, batting .361 with a .410 OBP and a .994 OPS. He has now put up eight RBI over the last week and if he can keep this up then he will make for a great value play.

Brett Lawrie hit a double in four plate appearances on Saturday afternoon against the Angels. He drove in a run on the hit and later came around to score in the inning.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has hit well for the A's this season. He is batting .288 with six home runs and 29 RBI. More importantly, the oft-injured infielder has managed to stay healthy thus far. He is a middle-of-the-road fantasy option as he normally bats at the end of the lineup.

Brett Lawrie went 3-for-5 with three singles and two RBI against the Padres on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie continues to provide steady production, batting .279 with six homers thus far. He's not ever going to be a flashy player, but Lawrie has earned his keep, and should be starting in all but the most shallow of mixed leagues.

Brett Lawrie finally broke his hitless streak with a 2-for-4 effort. He hit one single and also launched a solo home run.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie started his June off with a four game hitting streak (multiple hits in each game), and then allowed his fantasy value to plummet by going hitless for five games. He was a solid pick only a week ago, but it is still hard to recommend him only one game removed from his hitless streak.

Brett Lawrie put together his fourth three-hit game of the season, and fourth straight multiple hit game as he went 3-for-4. He hit two singles, one home run, and finished with one RBI and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has been absolutely on fire, and probably would have finished with more RBI if his teammates in front of him could figure out how to get on base. He has been a popular pick on daily sites now for the past couple of days, so expect his price to quickly rise.

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-4 with a single, a RBI double, and a run scored against Detroit on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie hit for a .295 average in May, and has brought his hot bat with him into June, starting the month off with three multi-hit games in a row, and raising his overall average to .281. If he can tack on some more power and counting stats to his better average at the plate, it won't be long before he's in the top-15 on the player rater at 2nd and 3rd base. Keep Lawrie active in all but the most shallow mixed leagues.

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-3 with two singles, a walk, and a run scored against the Tigers on Tuesday. He also struckout once in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie continued the success he had at the plate in May (.295 avg) with another multi-hit game on Tuesday. He's not providing a ton of counting stat value, but Lawrie is a solid option for fantasy with occasional pop.

Brett Lawire was able to pick up his first hit since returning to the lineup on a 1-for-4 effort for Oakland. His one hit was a home run that scored two runs. He did not take any walks and he also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie had struggled in his first two games since missing four days with an injury. He had been riding a five game hit streak before having to leave the lineup and had begun to look like a viable option in some deeper leagues and even a value pick in daily games. Look for him to pick up his batting average, but do not expect many more home runs as he is not a natural power hitter.

Brett Lawrie put together another great performance as he went 3-for-4 at the plate with two singles, and one double. Unfortunately, his teammates' bats were virtually nonexistent, so he was unable to knock in any runs or score himself.

Fantasy Impact: Brett Lawrie's recent production has really come out of nowhere. He has a solid month, but his batting average has still jumped a hefty 25 percentage points over the last two games. There is no reason not to take a chance on Lawrie in daily games, since Houston will be starting Scott Feldman, who has been struggling to the tune of a 5.06 ERA.

Brett Lawrie had his best night at the plate with a 3-for-4 game against the Astros. He finished up with two singles, and one double with one RBI, although he was never able to make it around the bases and score.

Fantasy Impact: Brett Lawrie's season totals look rather pedestrian, but he has actually had a very productive May, with a .314 batting average, .342 OBP, and .728 OPS. Right now he is very much under the radar, he may be a solid value play across various formats.

In a 2-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, Oakland Athletics' Brett Lawrie went 0-for-3 with a walk and struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has had a very up and down season so far this year. The 2B and 3B position eligible fantasy player is now batting .261 with 10 R, two HR, 14 RBI and a single SB on the year. He's definitely an option for fantasy teams in deep leagues, but he's not exactly a must-own player right now in most leagues. If you own him in traditional fantasy league(s) and don't have a better option to go with at either 2B, 3B, or Util/Flex, then you'll have to take your chances with him for now and hope for the best.

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and strikeouts against the Twins on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie's hitting streak is made even more impressive by having five multi-hit games in the last six. During the streak Lawrie has raised his average from .214 to .279, and he is nearing the top-15 on the player rater at both 2B and 3B, making him viable even in shallow mixed leagues. This might finally be the season where Lawrie plays up to his massive potential.

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles against the Rangers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It was Lawrie's second multi-hit effort in a row, and it extended his hitting streak to seven games, as well as raising his batting average to a decent .250. Lawrie is still striking out in about a third of his ABs, with two HRs and one SB, making him a good AL-Only play (especially with multiple positional eligibility at 2nd & 3rd), but only a deeper mixed league one.

Brett Lawrie slugged his second home run of the season in the first inning of the game, scoring three runs. He was unable to do anything else with his other two at-bats, but at least he did not strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has not had a great season so far, only batting .224, but he has managed 10 RBI. If continues to produce RBI, then he will retain some value in deeper leagues, but for now there is no real reason to roster him.

Brett Lawrie went 2-for-2 with a single and a home run on Sunday against the Brewers. He also walked once.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has been having a quiet spring training, but this game was an exception as he hit his second home run. Lawrie has yet to deliver on the promise that he had as a prospect, but the Athletics are hoping he can do so under their watch. Draft Lawrie late in mixed leagues if you still believe there is some hype to be had.

Brett Lawrie hit a two-run home run in Saturday's Cactus League game. It was his first homer of the spring and he is batting just .179 thus far.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie is being counted on to replace Josh Donaldson's production this season. If you are considering drafting Lawrie, don't be scared off by his slow spring. Be more concerned with the fact that he has been injured often throughout his career.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has always had a lot of potential, but has also struggled to stay on the field. Here's hoping he can avoid injuries and put together a productive season. He has some big shoes to fill as All-Star third baseman Josh Donaldson was part of the five player deal that brought Lawrie to Oakland.
