Brett Lawrie exits after spill into concrete camera well

Update: X-rays on Lawrie’s calf were negative, so the injury is being called a bruise.

Brett Lawrie’s all-out aggressiveness led to a nasty spill today, as the third baseman fell into the concrete camera well at Yankee Stadium going after Mark Teixeira’s foul pop up Wednesday.

Lawrie was able to get up immediately after the fall, but he was in obvious pain due to a leg injury. He was helped back into the dugout and into the clubhouse afterwards. The Blue Jays said he’d be taken in for precautionary X-rays on his right calf.

Losing Lawrie would be another big blow with Jose Bautista already down for the Jays. Yan Gomes would probably be called up to help fill in for him.
