Brett Lawrie activated from DL
To make room for Lawrie on the roster on Saturday, the Blue Jays optioned infielder Munenori Kawasaki to Triple-A Buffalo.
Lawrie played all 203 games of his major league career at third base before going on the DL. He returned Saturday at second base against the Orioles and went 0-for-4 at the plate.
The move allows Maicer Izturis to remain at third base.
"It makes a little bit of sense to me because we can get more of our guys in the lineup," Lawrie said.
Lawrie hit .209 with five homers and 14 RBIs before the injury.
