It seems that the Blue Jays coaching staff has made a decision on what to do with their lineup with the return of the Raging Red Bull at hand. Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca is reporting that the Jays will have Lawrie play 2B against RHP when he returns to the lineup on Monday. This will allow the hot bat of Juan Francisco to play 3B and get days off against LHP. Although playing 2B isn’t his first choice, Lawrie knows that the move to 2B will (potentially) allow for more offense; which in turn could lead to more W’s.
“He’s got no problem with it,” Gibbons said of Lawrie’s reaction. “He basically said, whatever the boys need. He’s here to win, that’s the name of the game, and like I said, I think it makes us better.”
