White Sox | Brett Lawrie on a roll

Sun, 01 May 2016 14:20:44 -0700

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie continued to haunt the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, May 01, going 3-for-3 while homering for the third straight game.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie is batting .290 with four home runs and 10 RBI on the season, so he can thank Camden Yards for playing a part in his recent power display. Still, his overall numbers are more than serviceable for a fantasy second baseman, and he now appears to be well on track to surpass last year's career high of 16 homers. He should remain in fantasy lineups when the White Sox begin a series at home against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie avoids arbitration

Thu, 14 Jan 2016 15:34:16 -0800

Chicago White Sox 2B Brett Lawrie avoided arbitration Thursday, Jan. 14, by agreeing on a one-year, $4.125 million deal.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie will likely be Chicago's starting second baseman this year, but he'll maintain third base eligibility, too. He was finally able to stay healthy over a full season and set career highs in home runs (16) and RBI (60) with the Oakland Athletics. He could best those numbers in a better hitting environment in Chicago with another healthy season.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie likely shifting to 2B

Wed, 16 Dec 2015 10:08:26 -0800

Chicago White Sox 3B Brett Lawrie is likely to shift to second base after the team acquired 3B Todd Frazier Wednesday, Dec. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie's power would enhance his stature more at second base than at third base. The problem with him has always been durability. Lawrie is a midrange second baseman with upside if eligible in mixed leagues.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie traded to ChiSox

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 18:25:02 -0800

The Oakland Athletics have traded 3B Brett Lawrie to the Chicago White Sox, in exchange for Ps Zack Erwin and J.B. Wendelken.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie, who will turn 26 before the start of next season, became expendable after the A's acquired Jed Lowrie from the Houston Astros last month. Erwin is a 21-year-old left-hander who went 2-2 with a 1.34 ERA in 15 games (seven starts) at two minor league stops in 2015, while Wendelken is a 22-year-old right-handed reliever who went 6-2 with a 3.20 ERA in 39 games with Class AA Birmingham and Class AAA Charlotte.

White Sox | ChiSox acquire Brett Lawrie

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 18:15:27 -0800

The Chicago White Sox have acquired 3B Brett Lawrie from the Oakland Athletics, in exchange for Ps Zack Erwin and J.B. Wendelken.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie hit .260 with 16 home runs and 60 RBIs in 149 games for the A's last season and will finally bring stability to the hot corner for the ChiSox after several years of below-average performance at the position. The move to U.S. Cellular Field should aid his power numbers, although injuries have kept him from reaching his full potential. He should be selected in the middle rounds of AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

White Sox | Brett Lawrie headed to White Sox?

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 05:30:31 -0800

Oakland Athletics 2B Brett Lawrie is part of a deal nearly complete with the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, Dec. 9. The Athletics would receive two minor leaguers in return.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie's power would translate well in U.S. Cellular Field, and he would make a nice MI pickup later in traditional drafts.

Angels | Brett Lawire of interest to Angels

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 13:29:02 -0800

Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie is of trade interest to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Lawire has flashed fantasy upside in spells throughout his career, but he has failed to produce as anything more than a low-end option over an entire season. Still, he is just entering his offensive prime, and injuries have limited his returns until last season. There is room for a statistical growth across all categories, but he shouldn't be viewed as anything more than an endgame option to fill out your roster in the majority of seasonal leagues.

White Sox | ChiSox interested in Brett Lawrie

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 09:51:27 -0800

The Chicago White Sox are interested in Oakland Athletics 3B Brett Lawrie, according to a source. The Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers are also in the mix.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie had a career-high 16 home runs with Oakland last year and drove in 60 runs while hitting .260 in 562 at-bats. Injuries are a concern with him, but he has enough power to be even more intriguing if he were to move to Chicago.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie on the block

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 23:36:08 -0800

Oakland Athletics 2B/3B Brett Lawrie and 3B Danny Valencia are on the trade block after the team acquired SS Jed Lowrie. Both are drawing interest from American League teams, but Lawrie is considered more likely to be dealt.

Fantasy Tip: Lawrie still has a lot of potential and is a MI candidate in traditional leagues wherever he plays.

Athletics | Brett Lawrie starting at second base

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 11:20:31 -0700

Oakland Athletics INF Brett Lawrie will bat seventh and play second base against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson Saturday, Sept. 26. INF Eric Sogard, who played second base Friday, Sept. 25, will play shortstop Saturday, with SS Marcus Semien receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Although Lawrie ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) is 3-for-5 against Hudson in his career, FantasyScore owners may want to think twice about using him. He is just 2-for-20 at the plate over the past seven days.
