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.
