Some bad news for a former Timber Rattler:
Exciting Jays’ rookie third baseman Brett Lawrie suffered a fractured right middle finger taking ground balls during pre-game batting practice at the Rogers Centre on Wednesday and will be out for the remainder of the ‘11 season.
The 21-year-old native of Langley, B.C. was batting .293 with nine home runs and seven steals in 43 games since his recall on August 5. Lawrie has been placed on the 15-day disabled list and will not accompany the Jays on the final road trip to Tampa and Chicago.
Lawrie became the fourth player among active major-leaguers with at least nine homers and 25 RBIs in his first 43 games, joining Albert Pujols, Chris Davis, Adam Dunn and Jeff Francoeur.
