Lawrie (general soreness) was held out again Tuesday, but is slated to return to the lineup Wednesday, the Bay Area News Group's John Hickey reports.

The A's have been incredibly cautious with both Brett Lawrie and Coco Crisp so far in camp, given both player's injury history. It would be foolish to expect Lawrie to play in 150-160 games this year, but if he can play in 130-150 games, he could easily outperform his current status as a late-round pick in mixed leagues.

Lawrie was scratched from Monday's game with general soreness, CSN California's Joe Stiglich reports.

He participated in a lot of defensive work Sunday, which is where the soreness stems from. Lawrie is expected to get back in the lineup Tuesday and assuming that happens he should be considered fine moving forward.

Lawrie agreed to a one-year, $1.925 million contract with the Athletics on Friday, Mike Perchick of WAPT reports.

Lawrie also has incentives involved in his contract to his injury history, but will make a solid chunk of change as a baseline. The 24-year-old played in just 70 games last season, postin a .247/.301/.421 batting line with 12 home runs and 38 RBI. He figures to serve as the A's starting third baseman in 2015, taking the place of Josh Donaldson at the hot corner.

The Blue Jays traded Lawrie and prospects Franklin Barreto, Sean Nolin, and Kendall Graveman to the A's on Friday in exchange for Josh Donaldson, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

Lawrie battled injuries during his tenure with the Blue Jays, but he hit a career-best 12 home runs in 70 games last season and will turn just 25 years old in January, so he still has some upside. He will replace Donaldson as Oakland's regular third baseman.

The Blue Jays transferred Lawrie (back) to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.

Lawrie was not expected to resume playing anytime soon, so the Blue Jays decided to move him on the 60-day disabled list to open up space on the 40-man roster. Given that he will not be eligible to be activated from the disabled list until September, don't expect him to make any further fantasy impact this season.

Lawrie (back) is continuing his rehab in Arizona, but there's no timetable for his return, SportsNet's Megan Robinson reports. "When he'll be back, I have no idea, nobody knows," manager John Gibbons said.

He has played in just one game since June 22, and it's a complete mystery as to if or when he'll rejoin the Blue Jays this season. Those in deeper leagues may have no choice but to stash him, but it may be time to look for help elsewhere in standard formats.

The Blue Jays placed Lawrie (back) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, Blue Jays broadcaster Mike Wilner reports.

Lawrie just returned earlier this week after missing more than a month with a finger injury, but he will be sidelined again after injuring his back in his first game off the disabled list. Munenori Kawasaki is the favorite to see most of the playing time at the hot corner in Lawrie's place, given that he saw fairly regular action there for a couple weeks prior to Lawrie's return.

Manager John Gibbons is hopeful that Lawrie (back) will be able to avoid a stint on the disabled list, John Lott of the National Post reports.

The Blue Jays are awaiting MRI results on the back injury that knocked Lawrie out of Tuesday's game, but he felt better Wednesday than the day before, so Farrell is hoping for only a short absence. Expect an update on Lawrie's status when the results of his MRI become available.

Lawrie (back) is out of the lineup Wednesday versus the Orioles.

In his first game Tuesday since June 22, Lawrie was removed after three innings due to a tight lower back. He relayed afterward that the ailment was first evident during pregame workouts, but his attempts to tough it out were short-lived. While he's considered day-to-day for now, Munenori will cover the hot corner Wednesday, with Ryan Goins manning second base.
