It’s about time the Jays got themselves a Canadian and BC boy/ potential all star 3rd baseman Brett Lawrie will fit the bill more than perfectly. Now playing his 5th major league game, Lawrie’s hitting .455 in the majors so far with 5 hits, 2 RBI and a home run. One of those RBIs came in his very first at bat on August 5th against the Orioles.
His call-up also means Jose Bautista’s much-needed return to right field without compromising golden glove-level play in the hot corner.
It’s been a while since Jays fans have had something to get excited about, but this 21 year old kid is definitely it.
