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.
