MLB Injury News:
Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista exited last
night’s contest against the Cleveland Indians after twisting his ankle, reports
John Lott of The National Post.
Bautista twisted ankle when he hit base in 8th, Gibbons says not thought serious, re-evaluate tomorrow.

Bautista left the game in the eighth inning after twisting his
ankle while stepping on a base. While Toronto pulled the slugger from the game,
the injury wasn’t thought to be serious at the time.
Manager John Gibbons confirmed this, as did Bautista himself
after the game. He told Shi Davidi of Sportsnet that trainers took a look at
his ankle after he came out of the game. They told him that “it’s good to go,”
calling it “nothing serious.”
Toronto said more would be known today, depending on how the
ankle responds. However, it seems like a good bet Bautista won’t be forced to
miss much, if any, time due to the injury.
Bautista was 1-for-4 last night with three runs batted in,
including his second home run of the season, a two-run shot in the first inning
off Brett Myers.

Jose Bautista is the example that every journeyman Major Leaguer playing the game looks to. Originally drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 20th round of the 2000 MLB Amateur Draft from Chipola College in Marianna, Florida, Bautista spent three full seasons in the minors before making his Major League debut on April 4, 2004 for the Baltimore Orioles. Early in his career, Bautista...
Don Cherry is known for his hockey acumen, but the Hockey Night in Canada commentator is also very opinionated when it comes to baseball.
Cherry, who is a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays, happened to catch Friday night’s game against the Red Sox, and a few things stood out to him. Cherry not only disagreed with how the crowd treated Red Sox manager John Farrell is his return to Toronto...

Believe me folks, I am trying to be positive about this year’ Toronto Blue Jays, but after watching their season opener, it’s hard not to get discourage.
The Jays put last year’ National League Cy Young winner, R.A. Dickey on the mound in their first game of the season against Cleveland. Jay’s manager, John Gibbons said in the post game press conference...
The new issue of Big Leagues Magazine is out and features an article by your favorite Fan on Josh Johnson and how he is ready to rock for the Toronto Blue Jays. Also featured in the magazine is a chock full of articles by great writers, fantasy and prospect information and much more. There is an interview with MLB Radio's Mike Ferrin as just one of the exciting features this...
Apparently the fine people of Toronto didn't take to kindly to the fact that current Red Sox manager John Farrell wanted to reunite with his former organization this past offseason, eh? As a matter of fact things are looking rather bleak for the former Toronto manager as he makes his return to the city he left months ago. If you’re watching the game at home don’t expect...
J.P. Arencibia hit two solo homers, Edwin Encarnacion added a three-run shot and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Cleveland Indians 10-8 on Thursday night, avoiding their first 0-3 start since 2004.
Jose Bautista hit a two-run homer and Colby Rasmus also connected as the Blue Jays went deep five times.
Arencibia had three hits with two RBIs. He had a second-deck drive to center in...
It took about two weeks last season to realize the Red Sox’ clubhouse was divided. It took less than that this season to realize everyone is now pulling in the same direction.
The Red Sox squeaked out a 6-4 win over the Blue Jays on Friday. The performance was far from perfect, leaving much to be desired from an execution standpoint, but the energy and camaraderie in the Boston...
The storylines on this series seem to run as long as the bottom line of ESPN. Both the Blue Jays and the Red Sox completely turned over their rosters in the off-season. Last year’s Blue Jays manager is this year’s Red Sox manager, a manager that was exchanged for a starting shortstop. The Blue Jays have gone in with an “all-in” mentality, where has the Red Sox have adopted...
The welcome (home) party John Farrell has received since leaving the Blue Jays and (re-) joining the Red Sox in the offseason has been an all-out bender, as Red Sox Nation couldn’t be happier to have Farrell leading the local nine this summer and beyond.
But how are the folks north of the border in Toronto reacting to Farrell fleeing Hogtown after just two seasons?
Not good, according...
Vladimir Guerrero will take the diamond once again.
Guerrero, who turned 38 in February, will continue taking hacks in the batter’s box, but this time it will be with the Long Island Ducks of the independent Atlantic League, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
The designated hitter played for the Baltimore Orioles in 2012, posting a .290 batting average and slugging 13 home...
With a strong series in New York, the Boston Red Sox head to Toronto with a 2-1 record and with the return of John Farrell, this will certainly be an interesting series for both teams. The most interesting stat for…
