  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Needs consistent at-bats

    Arizona general manager Mike Hazen said Lawlar would need consistent at-bats if he were to make the Opening Day roster, Steve Gilbert of reports.

    Lawlar was left off Gilbert's initial roster projection, which generated pushback from unhappy readers. Gilbert explained his projection was based on the language used by Hazen regarding the Diamondbacks' prospect. It's natural for the organization to give Lawlar a path to consistent playing time, but that's unlikely to happen if he's backing up Geraldo Perdomo at shortstop -- manager Torey Lovullo confirmed Perdomo would be the starter last week -- and Eugenio Suarez at third base. Given that scenario, it makes sense for the Diamondbacks to have Lawlar play everyday at Triple-A Reno, where he had just 80 plate appearances in 2023.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: May open in minors

    Lawlar will likely open the year at Triple-A Reno if he doesn't win the starting job at shortstop, Steve Gilbert of reports.

    Gilbert projects Geraldo Perdomo as the starting shortstop, but Lawlar should get plenty of reps this spring. Perdomo experienced a nice jump during his second full season in MLB, which included an All-Star nod. The offseason addition of Eugenio Suarez solidified third base, so there may not be an obvious way for both Lawlar and Perdomo to co-exist. The organization may best be served by letting Lawlar get regular reps for the Aces in the Pacific Coast League, where he had just 80 plate appearances in 2023.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Makes roster for wild-card series

    Lawlar has made the roster for the Diamondbacks' NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Brewers.

    Lawlar went 4-for-31 (.129) with zero extra-base hits after being promoted Sept. 7 from Triple-A Reno, but he is a highly talented 21-year-old infielder with the ability to provide a spark off the bench. Prior to his call-up last month, Lawlar registered an .874 OPS with 20 homers and 36 steals in 105 games this summer between the Double-A and Triple-A levels.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: On bench Tuesday

    Lawlar is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Giants.

    Lawlar has gone 3-for-20 (.150) with zero extra-base hits and eight strikeouts in eight major-league games since being called up Sept. 7 from Triple-A Reno. It appears the talented 21-year-old infielder will be a part-time player for the Diamondbacks down the stretch.

  • Diamondbacks' Jordan Lawlar: Sits for third straight

    Lawlar remains on the bench for Saturday's game against the Cubs.

    The Diamondbacks gave Lawlar a chance to prove he can help the team down the stretch, calling up the 2021 sixth-overall pick in early September despite the fact that he'd played in just 16 Triple-A games. He's appeared in only six MLB contests thus far but looks overmatched through his first 18 plate appearances, striking out eight times while recording just two hits, both singles. WIth the Diamondbacks in as tight of a playoff race as possible -- they entered play Saturday tied for the third and final NL Wild Card spot -- it's no surprise to see the unproven Lawlar remain on the bench while Geraldo Perdomo continues to start at shortstop.
