The Toronto Blue Jays are shutting down right fielder Jose Bautista for the rest of the season due to a nagging left hip injury.
Bautista has been on the disabled list since Aug. 21 and Toronto manager John Gibbons said the slugging outfielder will not play the rest of the season to give him more time to heal.
Though Bautista had been improving, a hip specialist recommended he rest two more weeks, leaving just one week left in the season.
Bautista played 118 games this season, hitting .259 with 28 homers and 73 RBIs.
He also had his 2012 season cut short due to wrist surgery.

R.A. Dickey surprised me again this past weekend by having another solid outing against the Kansas City Royals as his Toronto Blue Jays won the second of a three game series 4-2.

I don’t know what it is folks, but in recent years, the Toronto Blue Jays seem to wait until September to start winning games. Maybe because Toronto has nothing to lose since the Jays are out of the playoff race or maybe because the players (especially the rookies) are fighting for a spot on the team the following season. Who knows.
Well, just as the Jays did against the Kansas...
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.

After adding big name players this past offseason, expectations were high in Toronto. The team added R.A. Dickey, Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and others this offseason and the Blue Jays were thought to be a team that would contend for the World Series. The Blue Jays, even with all of their talent, have disappointed this season. The Blue Jays at the moment are 64-76 and are sitting 19...

Boston signed Gomez in February of 2012 as a free agent. He had previously...
