Originally written September 03, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Toronto Blue Jays' right fielder Jose Bautista, who has been on the disabled list since August 21 with a bone bruise in his left hip, got a medical evaluation of the injury in New York on Monday. As reported by Tyler Emerick of MLB.com,  Toronto is optimistic that Bautista can rejoin the club before the season ends, but they are being cautious and will wait for the results from the doctor's appointment before deciding what to do next.  "We hope so, but we'll have a better idea in the next couple days after he sees the doctor," manager John Gibbons said. "We still have a month left, but once he gets cleared to go, he's got to get back into baseball stuff."  Bautista was limited to 92 games last year due to injury and had a batting average of .241 with 27 home runs and 65 RBIs.  His best years were 2010 and 2011 when he his a combined 97 home runs and 227 RBIs.  This season, he has 28 home runs, 73 RBIs and a.259 average, in 112 games. For his career, Bautista is a .254 hitter with 211 home runs and 576 RBIs.
