Blue Jays’ Jose Bautista injures left wrist

The Toronto Blue Jays have had their fair share of injuries, especially in their pitching rotation. Still, the Blue Jays lineup has helped off-set some of those injuries, but now they might not have one of their best hitters for at least 15 days.

Jose Bautista injured his left wrist against the New York Yankees, where he said that there was some pain after his swing in the eighth inning. The Blue Jays have put him on the disabled list for 15 days, and have called up Anthony Gose to replace him.

“He didn’t say exactly when” he hurt the wrist, Farrell said. “But through the course of completing the swing he felt a little bit of a popping sensation.”

After an MRI on Bautista’s left wrist, it revealed the inflammation that caused the pain. It revealed no structural damage as well.

Bautista is currently tied second in the majors with 27 homers, and is one of the key players for this Blue Jays team.

“If it’s for long term, it’s devastating,” reliever Jason Frasor said. “Yeah, I guess we’ll wait and see.”

With injuries to Sergio Santos that will have a season ending surgery on his shoulder, and Luis Perez with an elbow surgery, the Blue Jays have six pitchers on their disabled list for 60 days.

Gose, 21, will have his work cut out for him as he replaces one of the team’s top players. The Blue Jays as a team will have to someway manage their team despite of all these injuries, and hope for the best.
