MLB Injury News:
The Toronto Blue Jays may not have seen the last of Colby Rasmus this season. The 27-year old outfielder is rehabbing his oblique injury hard with the hope that he can still return this season. However, with minor league seasons coming to an end and the Major League season winding down, Rasmus is running out of time.
Tyler Emerick of MLB.com says Rasmus has been working out in Florida. He hopes to still return this season, but the Blue Jays have no reason to push him. It will essentially be up to Rasmus and doctors if he returns this year. If the oblique strain does not get close to 100 percent healed, the Blue Jays will likely not activate him before the end of the year.
Rasmus has been on the DL since the middle of August with the oblique injury. Such injuries are hard to predict. Some players can take a couple days off and return to the lineup without a stint on the DL. However, other players can be lost for months. So far, Rasmus is not quite in the latter category, but he certainly was not able to just take a few days off.
This season, Rasmus has played in 112 games. He is hitting .273/.335/.478 on the season. The production he's shown this season has been his best since his 2010 season with the St. Louis Cardinals. Overall, Rasmus is a career .248/.316/.432 hitter.
