Grapefruit League action is underway and as Jerry Howarth likes to say “the Blue Jays are in flight”. Stats from the first few games and the location of BIB10 all contribute to this guy being the Blue Jay of the Week!
This weeks Blue Jay of the Week is…. Brett Lawrie! (@blawrie13)
Spring Training has started and the crack of the bat sounds oh-so good! The BIB team prepares to film BIB10 at the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame in St. Mary’s, On. this weekend and if Brett Lawrie becomes what everyone expects him to become, he will one day find himself in the Canadian Hall of Fame.
He has started off hot this spring hitting .500 while showing speed on the base paths with 2 stolen bases. Lawrie definitely appears to be a 5 tool player and he seems eager to display each and every tool. Even though he didn’t go deep in the first handful of games he belted two 2-run doubles in the first game and hasn’t looked back.
This is the second time I’ve named Brett Lawrie my Blue Jay of the Week in a short period of time, if he continues on this rapid pace he could be here all year! This is just a brief glimpse of what the Blue Jay of the Week will look like during the season… PLAY BALL!
