Toronto Blue Jays’ Brett Lawrie on DL with third oblique strain in two years

Brett Lawrie is back on the disabled list, this time with a left oblique strain that could force him to miss roughly a month of action with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Lawrie’s latest injury comes at a critical time for the Jays, who are battling for a playoff spot with three of their key offensive players on the disabled list.

The club announced Thursday that Lawrie was back on the DL, just two days after returning to the lineup after missing 36 games with a broken right index finger. It was not immediately known how he suffered the oblique strain, which affects a large muscle that covers the rib cage.

This is the third time in two years that Lawrie has suffered an oblique strain. He landed on the DL in spring training of 2013 (March 22) with a left oblique strain and returned to action April 16. In 2012 he missed a month with a right oblique strain.
