Brett Lawrie Still On The Mend

Brett Lawrie hasn’t returned to the lineup since injuring his left groin while attempting to score from second base on March 16, 2012.  The third basemen hasn’t played since and although Lawrie went through a series of drills Wednesday without any ill effects the Blue Jays will remain cautious and hold him out of the lineup for at least the next two days.

“We’ll increase his baseball activity today, particularly with ground balls, little bit more lateral work,” Blue Jays manager John Farrell said Thursday. “He is not in the lineup today, and right now we’ll push that back until Saturday at the earliest. He continues to be improved every day but consistent with what we’ve stated about him, we’re going to err on the side of caution.

“He’s making steady progress, this isn’t because of a setback in any way but it’s just a gradual ramping up of the activities and being sure that any discomfort, which there is not right now. We just want to be sure we take him through the appropriate progression.”

Analysis: It’s basically wait and see though it seems he is getting closer to returning.  It would be nice to see him stay completely healthy and get back into a good rhythm prior to the regular season starting in 18 days.
