Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista is back on the 15-day disabled list, saddled with the same injury that kept him sidelined for 51/2 weeks before his short-lived return on Friday. Bautista left Toronto's game against the Orioles on Saturday night in the third inning with discomfort in his left wrist, and after the game the Blue Jays put him on the DL. Bautista said, "I've been playing with it and I've been fine. That's why it is a little bizarre to me." He suspects the injury occurred during a swing he took in the first inning during his only at-bat of the game. It's been a difficult season for the slugger, who was sidelined from July 17 until Friday with inflammation in his left wrist.

Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus’ cornrows look awful

Toronto Blue Jays: Bautista and Morrow are back

When I saw the Blue Jay’s lineup just before the start of the first game against Baltimore, I had reason to feel optimistic.  Jose Bautista was back and I was expecting him to do some damage. How did he do?  Well, he went 0-4 at the plate.   How did his team do?  Well, they lost, again.  This time by a score of 6-4.  This was their sixth straight loss in a row. Now don...

Davis homers in first three at-bats

Stepping to the plate with a chance to become the 17th player in baseball history to hit four home runs in a game, Chris Davis had one thing in mind. ''I was thinking about trying to work a walk,'' Davis said with a wry grin. Davis didn't get that fourth homer, but three was quite enough to power the Baltimore Orioles to a 6-4 victory over the skidding Toronto...

Bautista, Morrow set to return to Blue Jays

Help is about to arrive for the Toronto Blue Jays. And they sure need it. Toronto is 5-16 in August after losing 3-2 in 11 innings Thursday as the Detroit Tigers completed a three-game sweep. The Blue Jays lost despite a superb start from lefty J.A. Happ, who lasted 7 1/3 innings, the first Blue Jays starter to go that deep into a game since Brandon Morrow pitched a two-hit...
