MLB Injury News:
Toronto Blue Jays' outfielder Melky Cabrera, who has struggled to a .279 average and .682 OPS in 88 games this season, may miss the remainder of the season with a left knee injury.
As reported by Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com, Cabrera left a game against the Angels on August 1 with a knee injury and he hasn't played since.
An issue was discovered in his meniscus and with surgery not a viable option, additional rest is required.
The Blue Jays are already hampered with injuries to Jose Bautista, Colby Rasmus, Brandon Morrow and Josh Johnson. Add in the loss of Cabrera and the Blue Jays will most certainly be calling up players from the Minor Leagues in September.
"We'll add a couple of pitchers, at least," manager John Gibbons said. "I'm sure
there will be a couple of position players, but you don't know when
Colby will be back, or Bautista. We'll bring another catcher so we'll
have three catchers."
Cabrera had an excellent season last year with the Giants. He batted .346 with 11 home runs and 60 rbi's in 113 games. He is a career .284 hitter with 72 home runs, 1,091 hits and 86 stolen bases in 1,072 games.

AIN'T THAT A KICK?
Your browser does not support iframes. Toronto Blue Jays center fielder Rajai Davis caught a fly ball despite losing his hat and somehow kicking it in front of his eyes with his back foot during Thursday night's game in the Bronx. It happened in the eighth inning as Yankees batter Curtis Granderson hit the fly ball to center field. As Davis chased it down, his hat fell...

Pitchers Chad Jenkins and Chien-Ming Wang are back with the Toronto Blue Jays.
Jenkins was recalled from Double-A New Hampshire, and Wang's contract was selected from Triple-A Buffalo in time for him to start Saturday night at Houston.

Earlier this week, Toronto Blue Jays infielder Maicer Izturis was forced to exit a game due to his ankle injury. His condition didn't improve as the Blue Jays were hoping, and the team decided to place him on the 15-day disabled list yesterday, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.
Izturis suffered his injury while running out a ground ball during Tuesday's contest...
Yep, I went there. A-maize-ing. Sure, “a-maze-ing” would have worked, too, but let’s just say I have an “ear” for what works best. And yeah, that makes no sense at all.

Alone in the visitors dugout another defeat latched to his ledger R.A. Dickey stared out toward an empty diamond on Wednesday night. His team’s season is lost. His star has dimmed.
Just minutes before Alfonso Soriano had vaporized a lackluster knuckleball in the eighth inning to lift the Yankees to a lead they would not relinquish.
Dickey finished the inning. His march off the...
Thoughts from Joe D.
I will be very shocked if the Toronto Blue Jays hang onto Alex Anthopoulos as the team’s general manager after this season. He took a team with a talent rich farm that was once ranked among baseball’s best and overturned it for aging and expensive players that have sunk the team to the bottom of the division instead of the top as he had hoped.
A new GM will...
It's that time of year, again.The next several weeks are certain to produce no shortage of team-inspired corn mazes across the great land of North America.Take this maze created by a Toronto Blue Jays fan, for example.Pretty neat, huh?Now, if only the Jays can somehow manage to climb out of the division cellar. With 10.5 games separating them from fourth place, and with only...
If you think the New York Mets’ parting with Jose Reyes was cold and difficult, just think about the potential of a possible reunion?
This is something percolating in my mind with the Toronto Blue Jays playing across town yesterday. However, it could happen because Reyes was traded from the team (Miami) that signed him a free agent, he’s eligible to go back on the market.
Lisa and Steve Cooper developed a corn maze homage to their favorite baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays, on their Ontario, Canada farm.
Although the Toronto Blue Jays have dropped way out of contention, Todd Redmond hopes to continue making the most of his opportunity in the club's rotation.
A matchup with the slumping Houston Astros might help his cause.
The right-hander will try to put together his third straight strong start Friday night when the Blue Jays open a three-game set at Minute Maid Park.
Ichiro Suzuki has reached a career milestone.
The Yankees outfielder and former Seattle Mariners icon slashed a single off of Blue Jays pitcher R.A. Dickey past third baseman Brett Lawrie for his 4,000 career hit, split between his time in the Pacific League in Japan and the major leagues. Suzuki recorded 2,533 of those hits while in a Mariners uniform, and his former team tweeted...
