He sprained his ankle on May 27th and had a slightly extended rehab stint in a few different minor league affiliates of the Blue Jays. He also tried playing second base during his rehab, which hopefully doesn't translate to a position change with the big squad.
The man going down (again) is fan favourite Munenori Kawasaki as expected:
There was no real place for Kawasaki with Lawrie coming up and so many infielders on the active roster.
The last piece of news, which a lot of people were fearing, is that Brett Lawrie will be starting today at second base and Maicer Izturis will start at third base:
Yours truly wrote some words about Brett Lawrie at second base a while back and now I must say, something most definitely is rotten in the state of Denmark.
If you're watching this game, good luck to you.
