Blue Jays infielder Brett Lawrie will miss the remainder of the season after being transferred to the 60-day disabled list, the team announced Tuesday.

Lawrie went on the 15-day DL with an oblique strain in early August, one day after returning from a 36-game DL stint with a broken finger.

By putting Lawrie on the 60-day DL, the Blue Jays create an additional spot on the 40-man roster for September call-ups. 

Lawrie was limited to 70 games this season. He batted .254 with 12 home runs and 38 RBIs.
