Toronto Blue Jays 3B Brett Lawrie (ankle) is currently in a walking boot and there is no timetable for his return.
Fantasy Tip: It doesn't look like Lawrie will be back anytime soon. Mark DeRosa, Maicer Izturis and Andy LaRoche will all split reps at third base with Lawrie sidelined. None of the trio will likely see enough time to warrant a roster spot in mixed leagues. AL-only leagues might be a different story, depending on your infield depth.

The Toronto Blue Jays are expected to recall 3B Andy LaRoche from the minors Friday, June 7, because he gives the team more options on the infield with 3B Brett Lawrie (ankle) still on the disabled list. LaRoche will likely share playing time with INFs Maicer Izturis and Mark DeRosa.
Fantasy Tip: LaRoche probably won't see a ton of time alongside Izturis and DeRosa, making him only worthy of a peak in AL-only leagues.

Toronto Blue Jays SS Maicer Izturis will start at third base against right-handers and INF Mark DeRosa will start at third against lefties with 3B Brett Lawrie (rib cage) to start the year on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Izturis is the better target because of his speed skills, but Lawrie isn't expected to miss much time, limiting their value significantly.
