The injuries are quickly starting to pile up for the Blue Jays.
Danny Jansen went on the 10-day Injured List right before the start of the series in New York with an oblique injury and it looks like he’ll be out for at least a few weeks. On Wednesday, Teoscar Hernandez took a massive swing at a Gerrit Cole pitch and came up favouring his side. He wound up leaving the game with what the Blue Jays called “left side discomfort.”
The irony here is that the Blue Jays could really use Reese McGuire and Randal Grichuk right now, two players who were traded away prior to the season in order to give the team some more flexibility and different skillets.
We don’t yet know how long Teoscar is going to be out, or if he is at all, but things aren’t looking great. According to Arden Zwelling, Teoscar compared the sensation he’s feeling right now is similar to the oblique injury that kept him out of action for a couple of weeks back in September of 2020.
Teoscar Hernandez’s MRI on his left side will be conducted tomorrow. Blue Jays will know more about his injury then.
Hernandez says sensation felt similar to the oblique injury he suffered in 2020.
