Any chance Lawrie gets 2B eligibility?

What are the chances? Kelly Johnson could surely fall flat on his face and suck. And they have too many startable OF's. Could Bautista move back to 3rd and Lawrie to 2nd?.....at least enough times to become 2b eligible in Yahoo (only 5 starts needed)?

Lawrie with 2b eligibility would have me foaming at the mouth.

Possible, but not likely. Travis Snider, Colby Rasmus and Eric Thames could all fall flat on their face and suck, too. Ben Fransisco is an OF filler. I just don't see it happening on any reasonable level. Too much would have to work out 'just so'. Plus I'm pretty sure the Bluejays would like some stability for a rookie playing in his first full season. Position changes in season have large affects on seasoned veterans, that's a big risk to take with a young guy.

It would be very sweet, but it's doubtful the Jays will mess around with a star young player.
