Brewers pull plug on Brett Lawrie experiment without return to action

The Milwaukee Brewers pulled the plug on the Brett Lawrie experiment Tuesday after insufficient progress was made during 3½ months of the unique project.

The Brewers signed the former major-league infielder to a minor-league deal at the outset of spring training with the understanding that he needed extensive physical rehabilitation after suffering leg and hip injuries with the Chicago White Sox in 2016. He was released by that club the following spring.

The hope was that Lawrie, 29, would eventually get back on the field with a minor-league affiliate but the process never advanced to that point, so it was mutually decided to part ways, according to Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns.

“Everyone tried their best,” Stearns said. “Brett gave it a very good effort. I know our training staff worked hard. At this point, it just made sense to move on.

Just Send It: Brewers planning to go slowly with Canadian Brett Lawrie

PHOENIX — Almost two years after he was released during spring training, Brett Lawrie is getting a second chance to play baseball again.

He faces a long road back to the majors.

Lawrie, from Langley, B.C., finalized a minor league deal with the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday, returning to the organization that took him in the first round of the 2008 draft. But it’s going to be a while before he takes the field with any team in their system.

The Brewers are planning to go very slowly with Lawrie, who hasn’t appeared in a regular-season game since July 21, 2016, with the Chicago White Sox. General manager David Stearns said the infielder is going to spend the next six weeks “putting his body in the best position to succeed moving forward,” and then progress to baseball activities.
