Fantasy Impact: 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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Fantasy Impact: On May 1, Lawrie's batting average stood at .290. Approximately a month later, Lawrie's average stands at .251. The 26-year-old is right about where he should be. As the weather continues to get warmer, his power numbers should increase.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has started all 40 games this season for the White Sox. He is 0-for-13 over his last three games with seven strikeouts so the timing for a day off makes sense. Lawrie should return to the lineup on Friday when the White Sox take on the Royals.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has gone hitless in his last two games, but has drawn four walks. He currently possesses a batting average of .281 and an OBP of .389.

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk as the Sox fell to the Angels on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: After a slow start, Lawrie is beginning to turn things around. He's hitting .286 with an OBP of .355. It's time to start putting Lawrie in the starting lineup, especially when the Sox are playing at U.S. Cellular Field. Also, don't be surprised if Robin Ventura moves Lawrie up in the lineup. The Sox No. 2 hitter, Jimmy Rollins, is currently hitting just .217.

Brett Lawrie did not have an official at-bat on Wednesday afternoon against the Angels, but walked three times. He now has a .345 OBP this season.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie had 16 strikeouts against one walk coming into the game, so walking three times is pretty surprising. He has been very productive over the last 10 games, posting hits in eight of ten games, including four multi-hit games. The White Sox expected big things from Lawrie and while a .741 OPS and four RBI may not be big things per se, a .283 batting average shows progress. Fantasy owners should see Lawrie as very little more than CI depth and a potential option as a backup 3B.

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-5 (collected a single) with one run scored and struck out twice in Oakland's loss to Texas by the score of 8-6 on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie can only be suggested as a fill-in starter at the second or third base position in most fantasy leagues right now. He is, however, a viable option to go with in deep leagues, especially at second or third base.

Category: , Game Recaps


Brett Lawrie came up with a multiple hit game for Oakland in a 3-for-4 effort. He hit two singles and one double, but was unfortunately unable to drive in any runs. Lawrie did score one run himself and also struck out once.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie continues to hit well in September with a .304 average and a .322 OBP. He does not take many walks (he has only taken two so far this month), so his fantasy value depends entirely on his hitting. He bats .305 against left handers and is worth an add as a value play in a shallow position at second base.

Brett Lawrie managed to produce at the plate with a 2-for-6 effort. He came up with one double and one home run, his sixteenth of the year. He finished the game with one RBI and two runs scored himself.

Fantasy Impact: After his hot start to September, Lawrie has settled down and is now hitting .265 with a .294 OBP. He hits .297 against left handers with a .342 OBP and seven home runs, so he can still act as deep value play at a shallow position in daily games.

In Oakland's 11-5 loss to Houston on Wednesday, Brett Lawrie went 1-for-4 (a single) with one run scored and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie remains a suggested option in deep fantasy leagues, but isn't a suggested option in most fantasy leagues yet. He is a solid fill-in option, though, at the starting second base position in most fantasy leagues.

Brett Lawrie put together another big game for Oakland with a 2-for-4 performance at the plate. He hit one double and one home run (his 15th of the year). He finished the game off with one RBI and two runs scored himself.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie's last two and half weeks have been huge and he is already off to a great start in September. He has hit four home runs in his last six games and he has recorded 15 hits in his last ten games. He hits .292 with a .340 OBP against left handed pitchers and he could provide some decent value at a thin position for a lot of owners.

Brett Lawrie collected two hits, including a home run, Wednesday in the team's loss to the Mariners.

Brett Lawrie was one of the only productive members of Oakland's offense with a 2-for-4 effort against the Blue Jays. Both hits were singles and he was unable to drive in any runs or score any himself.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie's playing time will have to continue to come at second base since Danny Valencia has taken up residence at third base. Lawrie's numbers have begun to seriously drop over the past month, so the once solid .280 hitting third baseman is now looking like a very avoidable .265 hitting second baseman.

Category: , Game Recaps


Brett Lawrie provided half of Oakland's runs with a 2-for-4 effort at the plate. He came up with one single and one solo home run. He finished the game with two runs scored and one RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie's numbers are beginning to drop due to a mediocre July and slow start to August. While he is only batting .222 so far this month, he has knocked in a run in each of his last three games, so it may not be time to give up hope on him yet.

Brett Lawrie had a monster night with a 4-for-5 effort at the plate. He hit one single, two doubles, and one home run (his ninth of the year). He finished up with four RBI and three runs scored himself.

Fantasy Impact: While Lawrie has put together a very respectable year so far, his numbers in July have been a bit down, with only a .260 batting average and a total of six RBI. There are a better options at third base, but Lawrie is still a great option in deeper leagues or in a pinch.

Brett Lawrie went 0-for-3 at the plate in Oakland's 5-2 loss to Toronto on Thursday.

Brett Lawrie put together a productive night at the plate with a 2-for-4 effort. Both of his hits were singles, but he was unable to drive in any runs or score any runs himself.

Fantasy Impact: So far Lawrie has produced a quiet but consistent and respectable season with a .282 batting average and 37 RBI. He is not really a game changer in daily play, but he is not a terrible option in league play. The lack of offense throughout Oakland's lineup definitely cripples Lawrie's RBI potential, but expect him to plug along and quietly collect his hits.

Brett Lawrie went 0-for-3 at the plate as Oakland loses to New York (AL) by the score of 6-2.

Fantasy Impact: Lawrie has stepped it up at the plate for the A's since the start of June and was getting closer and closer to hitting .300 at one point last week (.291), but he's just recently been struggling at the plate in his past three games only going two for his last eleven at-bats. He is highly recommended to go with in deep fantasy leagues, but he should be avoided right now, if possible, in standard leagues.

Brett Lawrie went 1-for-4 with a solo-HR and three strikeouts against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: It was nearly a lost game for Lawrie, but he came through in the 10th with a solo shot that would give the A's the win. This was Lawrie's eighth homer so far, combining with a nice .291 average to make him a solid (if not flashy) fantasy option at 2nd and 3rd (top-12 for both on the player rater).

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

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 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.

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 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.
