TORONTO -- Brett Lawrie has resumed full baseball activities but there is still no timetable for his return to the big leagues. Toronto's third baseman is currently on the disabled list with a strained left oblique muscle. He was originally supposed to be out for approximately three weeks but more than a month later the timing of his return is still very much up in the air. The encouraging news is that Lawrie's workouts have started to get a little more intense and now that he has resumed hitting it should only be a matter of time before he gets into a Minor League game. "He's doing everything right now he's just not in any games," manager John Gibbons said. "He's running, he's throwing, he's swinging the bat, fielding ground balls. He's doing everything he would do here, now it's just when do we get him into games. "Hopefully that's not too far off. He'll start turning it up a little bit and then we'll really see where he's at."
