Blue Jay Hunter Podcast Episode 8: With Travis Down, is Lawrie the Answer?

The Blue Jays have an injured second baseman – a second baseman just became available – seems like the perfect fit, right? Well, it’s a little more complicated than that.

With Devon Travis suffering a setback in his rehab, the timeline on his return has become a little more muddied. And with Brett Lawrie suddenly on the market, could the Blue Jays look at bringing him back into the fold?

In this week’s episode, I wonder whether Brett Lawrie may be a suitable backup plan for Devon Travis. Also, musing about Jose Bautista’s offseason, if Angel Pagan still makes sense for the Blue Jays, plus answering listener questions. This episode is 25 minutes and 9 seconds long.
