DL May Claim Blue Jays Jose Bautista

The Toronto Blue Jays are hoping for the best for José Bautista. Perhaps it looks worse than it was, but in last night’s game against the New York Yankees, Bautista took a swing in the eighth inning and apparently sustained tendon damage in his left wrist.

José Bautista news

Bautista said he felt a popping sensation in his left wrist.

Bautista left the game and initial x-rays were negative.

Bautista is scheduled to have an MRI today to determine the severity of the injury.

“He didn’t say exactly when” he hurt the wrist, Blue Jays manager John Farrell told news reporters. “But through the course of completing the swing he felt a little bit of a popping sensation.”

Currently, the Blue Jays are 45 – 45 and two games out of a wild-card spot in the American League. Losing an offensive force like Bautista for any significant period of time will make the road to the playoffs much tougher for the Blue Jays.

While it has yet to be determined whether or not Bautista would be added to the DL, he most certainly will miss a number of games.

Blue Jays placed OF Jose Bautista on the 15-day disabled list with left wrist inflammation. Anthony Gose was called up in the corresponding move to replace Bautista on the active roster. Gose, 21, was hitting .292/.375/.432 with five home runs, 18 doubles, 10 triples, 41 RBI, 29 stolen bases and an .808 OPS in 92 games at the Triple-A.
