2B - FA
Brett Lawrie has been placed on the disabled list due to his strained hamstring.
The White Sox gave him time off to see how it would respond, but they've ultimately decided to have him rest for the full two weeks, if not longer. He's been too inconsistent for standard leagues this season, but he's proven useful in good matchups.
Brett Lawrie is day-to-day after leaving Thursday's game with left hamstring tightness. He was 0-for-1 on the night.
Lawrie was in the midst of a slump. He should have been benched if owned. Whoever the White Sox deploy at second base is not worth a roster spot.
The White Sox let a 5-2 lead slip away and lost 5-6 in extra innings on Wednesday. Their six through eight hitters did not record a single hit and that looked to be a contributing factor in their loss. Brett Lawrie hit seventh and was one of those guys. He finished 0-for-5 with two strikeouts.
Lawrie looked good before the break. Unfortunately he has looked awful since. He has had one good game over his last seven, and over that span is only hitting .115. Give him some time on your bench until he starts showing he can turn things back on. Remember that just before the break he was hitting over .260. He is still on pace for 60 runs and RBI. He can serve as a good bench option since he is both 2B and 3B eligible. Just do not wait on him too long if something better comes along.
Brett Lawrie went 1-for-4 with his 11th home run of the season in Wednesday's win over the Twins.
Lawrie has been solid for the White Sox, and he's provided limited value in terms of standard fantasy leagues. He has nice pop, as evidenced by his 30 extra-base hits to this point in the season, and he has also contributed six stolen bases.
Lawrie went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts as the White Sox lost 11-4 to the Washington Nationals.
The White Sox are falling in the standings and so is Brett Lawrie's batting average. He's now hitting .236 and leads the team in strikeouts with 73, nineteen more than Jose Abreu.
