BALTIMORE - Brett Lawrie, the Blue Jays “enfant terrible” is back with the boys.

Bouncing around the Jays clubhouse prior to the game like Jim Carrey’s character in The Mask, Lawrie returned from a 41-game absence to a team that needs serious and immediate resuscitation.

Since suffering a high left ankle sprain on May 28, the Jays have pretty much spun their wheels without him, going 21-20 in his absence.

He returns to a new position — second base — and Saturday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles marks the first big-league game where Lawrie and shortstop Jose Reyes have played together this season.
