Blue Jays activate Brett Lawrie, option Kawasaki
Lawrie was recovering with ankle sprain
The Toronto Blue Jays activated Brett Lawrie from the disabled list on Saturday and sent fellow infielder Munenori Kawasaki to the triple-A Buffalo Bisons.
Lawrie, who also missed the start of the season with a ribcage injury, has been out with a left ankle sprain since late May.
In 37 games with the Blue Jays this season, the 23-year-old from Langley, B.C., is batting .209 with five home runs, 14 RBIs and two stolen bases.
The eccentric Kawasaki has been one of the bright spots for a disappointing Toronto team in 2013. In 70 games with the Blue Jays, the 32-year-old is batting .213 with one home run, 20 RBIs and seven steals.
