 The last reliever to make the cut in spring training, Lawrence, in camp as a non-roster invitee, impressed with 15 strong innings (1.80 ERA) in the Cactus League. Lawrence made his Major League debut with Toronto last year, but did poorly and was designated for assignment by the Jays in May. The M's claimed him off the waiver wire to fill one of the many vacancies created by last year's injury epidemic and he wasn't impressive; he split time between the M's and Triple-A Tacoma the rest of the season, putting up middling numbers at both levels. The one area he shows real promise in is strikeouts—in the aggregate, he struck out 100 and walked 36 in 12223 innings.
