Brett Lawrie Day to Day With Groin Injury reports Brett Lawrie is expected to be out for at least the next few games because of tightness in his left groin.

The Blue Jays’ third baseman suffered the injury while attempting to score from second base on an RBI single by J.P. Arencibia during Friday’s game against the Rays.

Lawrie doesn’t believe the ailment is anything serious and likely would return to action if it was the regular season, but with more than two weeks to go until Opening Day there’s no reason to force the issue.

“Brett came in feeling good, yet we’re going to side on the cautious side with his groin situation,” Blue Jays manager John Farrell told reporters on Saturday morning. “It’s likely to be multiple days before he’s back on the field.

“He feels improved today, but we’re going to be sure this is 100 percent out of his mind and certainly not feeling anything before we would even entertain the thought of getting him back into the lineup.”

Lawrie did not require an MRI and was held out of batting practice on Saturday to give him a full day of proper rest. It’s an injury Lawrie has dealt with in the past and he wants to be overly cautious to avoid a more serious setback in the future.
