The Blue Jays are back to fighting for a wild-card spot without Brett Lawrie, and for now, they’re not entirely sure how much longer their star infielder will be out.

Lawrie was seen leaving the Rogers Centre prior to the game Wednesday, and after the Jays win a report said there was word he would be out 3-6 weeks with the same oblique strain he suffered in 2012.

The Jays announced a little over an hour after the game that Lawrie’s MRI results were being sent to the team’s Florida doctors for comparison purposes, a sign they fear the injury is worse than first believed. The Florida doctors were to then send the 2012 MRI to Toronto so both sets of doctors could compare the two images.

Jays manager John Gibbons would only say that Lawrie’s MRI report from Wednesday was being sent to Florida for further review.

When asked if the team had information from the initial report, Gibbons said, “(we) might ... We’re sending (the MRI) to Florida doctors, no conspiracy here, covering the bases. When the time’s right, you’ll know.”

There was more certainty on the injury front with Adam Lind, who was to report to the Gulf Coast League Thursday to begin a rehab assignment.

Lind is apparently game ready, solid news for the injury-plagued Jays who are without three of their best players — Lawrie, Lind, and Edwin Encarnacion — as they chase Baltimore for first place in the American League East.

Toronto entertains Detroit this weekend and are scheduled to face Max Sherzer and David Price Saturday and Sunday, respectively. After that it’s on to Seattle Monday to face Felix Hernandez, who has pitched at least seven innings and given up two or fewer runs in his last 15 starts, a league record.

“We’re trying to focus on winning the division,” Gibbons said of his club, which is in the thick of the wild-card race and trails the first-place O’s by four games.
