Lawrie, who suffered through some puzzling injuries in his leg last season, discovered the root of the problem was with orthotics inserted into his shoes. Since removing the orthotics, Lawrie said he's feeling much better.

EDGE Analysis

Lawrie was sidelined with what was first reported to be a hamstring injury, but the pain cascaded to his knee, calf and hip, causing a premature end to his season in August. The source of his pain wasn't discovered until October, well after the time he could return to the field for Chicago. Lawrie's upbeat entering training camp and ready to resume his role as the White Sox starter at second base, though his future with Chicago is clouded by the organization's acquisition of Yoan Moncada from Boston. Moncada, the team's top prospect according to RotoWire, is expected to open the season at Triple-A Charlotte, but should reach the south side at some point during the season.

Lawrie agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the White Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old took a significant pay cut ($600,000-plus) to remain with the White Sox following another disappointing campaign. Lawrie was limited to 94 games due to hamstring issues and struggled to a .248/.310/.413 line when on the field. It'll be a make-or-break season for the former top prospect.

Lawrie (hamstring) is in Arizona rehabbing and could see some tune up action in the Instructional League, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lawrie appears to be making some progress despite remaining without a defined timetable. It's unlikely the White Sox will rush the veteran back to action given that the team is out of playoff contention but there may still be a chance he returns to the field again this season.

General manager Rick Hahn said Lawrie (hamstring) recently had an MRI on his knee and calf, but there were not structural issues, the Daily Herald reports. However, there is not a time line for his return.

EDGE Analysis

Lawrie has been on the disabled list for more than a month now with the hamstring issue, and he said he is still feeling "something" in his leg. It is unclear if he will return at all this season, as he is running low on time to rehab in the minors. Tyler Saladino should continue to start in his stead.

Lawrie (hamstring) returned to Chicago on Tuesday to be further examined after his minor league rehab assignment was cut short, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lawrie began his rehab over a week ago, but he was unable to make it through a complete game due to the hamstring injury and a possible quad issue. His return date remains up in the air, but Tyler Saladino and Carlos Sanchez should continue to man second in his stead.

Lawrie (hamstring) left his rehab game after four innings Saturday, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports.

EDGE Analysis

According to White Sox manager Robin Ventura, Lawrie will not be activated until he's able to play a full game for Double-A Birmingham while on a rehab assignment. That statement clouds his potential return date a bit, as he was pulled early from several rehab games this week. Keep an eye on his minor league game log, however, as consecutive full games will indicate Lawrie's activation is right around the corner.

Lawrie (hamstring) was pulled from a rehab game at Double-A Birmingham on Wednesday night due to a quad issue, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

At this point, it's unclear whether the setback is anything to worry about, but considering Lawrie is already on the DL with a hamstring injury, it's certainly far from encouraging. Lawrie remains without a firm return timeline, and given this latest news it's possible his recovery could extend toward the end of the month.

Lawrie (hamstring) will begin a rehab assignment Saturday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

He has been taking batting practice and running the bases without pain of late, so hopefully his stint in the minors does not last long. He should take over second base upon his return, but he could yield more time than usual to the younger guys down the stretch as the team looks toward 2017.

Lawrie, who is on the DL with a hamstring injury, is also dealing with a knee issue that is complicating his recovery, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports.

EDGE Analysis

He is not close to returning to the White Sox as he needs more time to recover from a left hamstring strain, but he also has some fluid and discomfort in his knee. It would seem that a late-August return would be the best-case scenario, given Lawrie's litany of lower-body issues. Tyler Saladino will continue to man second base in the meantime.

Lawrie (hamstring) will need more time to recover from his hamstring injury, and is not close to returning according to manager Robin Ventura, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lawrie initially hit the DL on Wednesday and hasn't seemed to be progressing from the injury at all, even though tests revealed no significant damage to the hamstring. The 26-year-old is eligible to return as early as August 6, but will likely need at least another week if not more to feel comfortable back on the field. In his place, the White Sox have been starting Carlos Sanchez at second.
