  • Blue Jays’ move of Brett Lawrie to second may not be final position

    Toronto Star "On the surface, the move of Brett Lawrie from third base to second as he returned to the Rogers Centre on Friday in an 8-5 loss to the Rays makes no sense in terms of what the Blue Jays are attempting to accomplish this year.
