Description: Toronto third baseman Brett Lawrie (ankle) missed Tuesday's game due to a sprained left ankle and the team will make a decision soon regarding a DL stint, according to MLB.com.
Insight: Lawrie (.209, 5 HR, 14 RBI) hurt his ankle while stealing second base Monday. He's listed as day-to-day, but manager John Gibbons said the Blue Jays won't drag the decision out. "We'll have a better idea by the end of the day or definitely by tomorrow," said Gibbons. The team cannot leave an injured Lawrie on the bench much longer since it starts a seven-game swing in NL parks Wednesday and needs as many pinch-hitters as possible for National League play.

He was suspended for several games for that incident, but he won't miss any time due to this one.

Description: Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie is hitless in 11 at-bats versus Rays' hurler Jeremy Hellickson.
Insight: Lawrie owners dealt with preseason injury and now regular season ineffectiveness. He's got long-term talent, but at this point with his .186 batting average and .596 OPS he should be sitting on your bench until further notice.
