Lawrie out for Canada, Friday game changed to Chase Field

Thursday, March 7, 2013

PHOENIX- Brett Lawrie (Langley, BC) has withdrawn from Team Canada at the World Baseball Classic due to a mild rib strain suffered in yesterday’s exhibition game loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

Lawrie will not be replaced on Team Canada’s roster as the deadline to make roster changes has passed.

World Baseball Classic officials have decided to move tomorrow’s Canada/Italy game from Salt River Fields at Talking Stick to Chase Field due to the threat of inclement weather.

First pitch will be at 12:08pm MT/2:08pm ET as Canada’s Shawn Hill (Georgetown, ON) takes on Italy’s Alessandro Maestri.

Fans in Canada can watch the game on Sportsnet.
