Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Sent to minors

Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Sent down Friday

Lawrence was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday. Lawrence struggled over two major-league appearances in July, posting an 11.88 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 8.1 innings. After giving up five runs in 2.2 innings as the primary pitcher Thursday against the Mariners, he'll head back to the minors. It's possible that he rejoins the Blue Jays' bullpen as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen at some point.

Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Lines up as primary pitcher

Lawrence is expected to serve as Toronto's primary pitcher behind opener Anthony Banda against Seattle on Thursday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports. Kevin Gausman (ankle) is unable to start Thursday, so the Blue Jays will instead turn to Banda and Lawrence to cover the early innings in the series opener versus the Mariners. Lawrence surrendered six runs over 5.2 innings during his previous appearance for Toronto on July 2, when he served as long relief in a doubleheader.

Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Sunk by Mariners

Lawrence worked as the primary pitcher Thursday against Seattle, allowing five runs on seven hits over 2.2 innings. He did not factor in the decision. Anthony Banda opened the game for Toronto and was charged with two runs while notching just one out. That got him tagged with the loss and allowed Lawrence to escape with a no-decision despite his own ugly performance. Lawrence gave up a run in the second and four in the third before departing having tossed 52 pitches. The right-hander was again strung by the long ball -- he yielded two Thursday and has now served up five homers over his past 12.1 frames. Lawrence has bounced back and forth between Triple-A and the majors this season, and he could be headed back down following Thursday's poor outing.

Lawrence was sent down Sunday after he gave up six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out six in 5.2 relief innings against the Rays on Saturday.

Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Slated to rejoin big-league bullpen

Lawrence is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Lawrence was slated to start for the Triple-A club Friday, but he'll instead provide length out of the Blue Jays' bullpen since the team used several relievers during Thursday's blowout loss to the Orioles. The 34-year-old made two relief appearances for Toronto in early May and allowed just one run in 3.1 innings.

Blue Jays' Casey Lawrence: Headed back to minors

Lawrence was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday. Lawrence was called up Wednesday, and he pitched 3.1 innings across two appearances, allowing one earned run. The Blue Jays had to drop a player from the active roster after a doubleheader Saturday, and Lawrence will return to the minors as a result.
