Blue Jays | Brett Lawrie could return as 2B

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons indicated 3B Brett Lawrie (ankle) could play second base once he comes off the 15-day disabled list. Gibbons did not rule out OF Jose Bautista playing third base and said 1B Edwin Encarnacion could start at third base occasionally but not often. 3B Mark DeRosa and SS Maicer Izturis could see a majority of the time at third base if Lawrie is moved.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie has been working at second base during his rehab, so it appears the team is serious about the possibility of moving Lawrie to second base. Lawrie probably would get more fantasy value if he is able to pick up second base eligibility. Even though DeRosa and Izturis would see playing time, their fantasy values would be hurt since they would be in a timeshare.
