Brett Lawrie (2B,3B)

Oakland Athletics - 36% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

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.

Brett Lawrie expects that playing his home games on a natural grass surface instead of the turf in Toronto will allow him to stay healthy this year. (Source:

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.
