Brett Lawrie (2B,3B)

Oakland Athletics - 43% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

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.
