Found May 15, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera underwent an MRI on Wednesday, apparently after dealing with soreness in his hamstring since the start of the season. Sportsnet's Shi Davidi tweeted the results of the MRI on Tuesday evening, saying that Cabrera had problems in both his quad and hamstring: MRIs on Melky Cabrera show irritation in right quad and left hamstring. Can play to pain tolerance. #BlueJays — Shi Davidi (@ShiDavidi) May 15, 2013 The news comes after Jays GM Alex Anthopoulos announced on Tuesday that the team had decided to re-evaluate Cabrera's hamstring issue. It seems that the Jays were hoping the problem would go away without Cabrera having to miss any significant time, but the fact that he was still experiencing soreness led the team to rethinking their strategy. "He had it at the end of Spring Training, but he said he would fight through it and get through it," Anthopoulos said. "We thought over time with treatment it could get better." It remains to be seen whether the pain Cabrera is dealing with will get to the point where he has to sit out at least a day or two. Toronto does not appear to be overly concerned about the left fielder aggravating an injury, as he was back in the lineup for Wednesday's game, batting leadoff. According to Davidi, manager John Gibbons is planning to DH Cabrera against left-handed starters, with Emilio Bonifacio or Rajai Davis in left, but will keep him in the field for righties in order to play Adam Lind at DH.  Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Giants to face Blue Jays, Cabrera

FRED THORNHILL/Reuters It has been 273 days since the Giants have seen Melky Cabrera. He was caught, and that was that. The Giants were surging and had just traded for the Phillies’ slugger Hunter Pence. Cabrera was leading the league in triples (10), was second in batting average (.346) and was on pace for around 230 hits last year before he was suspended for PED use. Since then...

Blue Jays' Sergio Santos to have elbow surgery

Blue Jays right-hander Sergio Santos will have surgery this week to remove bone spurs from his pitching elbow and is expected to be sidelined about six weeks. Santos was placed on the 15-day disabled list April 14 with soreness in his triceps. He had been close to starting a minor league rehabilitation assignment but experienced a drop in velocity while pitching in an extended spring...

NBC Sports reports: Cabrera will receive his championship ring when the Giants visit the Blue Jays, Cabrera’s new team, on Tuesday...

Jays infielder amazed by Sandoval's tats

This moment of childlike wonder took place during batting practice prior to the Giants-Blue Jays game at Rogers Centre this past Wednesday night. Toronto shortstop Munenori Kawasaki has a look of sheer amazement on his face as he gawks at Pablo Sandoval’s massive arm and tattoo work, which seems strange since Kawasaki hails from Japan, aka The Land of the Rising Tentacle Porn....

R.A. Dickey’s Lost Velocity

Knuckleballers aren’t like other pitchers, or so the saying goes. Their pitches flutter like butterflies, they pitch at less than max effort, they don’t depend on velocity, and they can pitch into their fifties. All of these things seem true, and yet the more we know about knuckleballers the more they might actually be more like all the other pitchers out there. So when 38-year...

SF Giants Rumors: Melky Cabrera, It Wasn’t Muscle Melk

The San Francisco Giants finished a 7-3 homestand, and then were off to see Melky Cabrera and the Jays in Toronto. Manager Bruce Bochy presented Cabrera with his World Series ring in a private setting. Bochy said Melky wanted it that way, and Melky says Bochy wanted it that way. I think it’s safe to say that Melky didn’t want the presentation to be public with the way he left...

Toronto Blue Jays Lay A World Series Beating On San Francisco Giants

Toronto Blue Jays Farm Report: May

With a day off for the Toronto Blue Jays Monday night, I take a look at what’s been going on down on the farm. With the off-season acquisitions between the Miami Marlins and New York Mets, Blue Jays General Manager Alex Anthopoulos dealt away some of the game’s top prospects including number one catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud and right-handed pitching stud Noah Syndergaard...

Romero Struggles Once Again But Bisons Hold On

It doesn’t seem to matter where Ricky Romero is pitching recently, the southpaw just can’t get the job done. Romero struggled once again on Thursday afternoon in his second start with Buffalo in 2013. The former All-Star went only 3.2 innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and six walks. Romero has had no control of the strike zone since joining the Herd and saw...

Hamate Break Halts Jorge Bonifacio’s Breakout Season

If you knew Emilio Bonifacio‘s younger brother was an outfield prospect in the Kansas City Royals’ farm system, you might assume the two are roughly similar. But Emilio — a speedy, switch-hitting, utility man for the Toronto Blue Jays — and Jorge have little in common, at least when it comes to their games. Jorge, the younger of the pair, is a burly right fielder with a...

Pitching Injuries Becoming All Too Familiar For The Blue Jays

For the first six weeks of this season, the Toronto Blue Jays have been digging themselves into a hole. Some say this hole is close to becoming too deep to climb out of. Others have said it is still early and the team will come around in time for the playoff chase in September. But it is not just the wins or losses that have bitten the Blue Jays. In the last three to four weeks the...

Brandon Belt Finally Belting It

In the fourth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Giants first baseman Brandon Belt stepped to the plate with his team down 6-1. Squaring off against reigning National League Cy Young Award winner and knuckleball extraordinaire R.A. Dickey, Belt looked to spark his team to a rally from its early deficit. He certainly did his part. On a 2-2 pitch, Belt smacked...

MLB Quarter Mark: Are The Toronto Blue Jays Turning It Around?

The Toronto Blue Jays are turning their season around When Alex Anthopolous made 3 defining moves this off-season, acquiring Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buehrle, Emilio Bonifacio, and John Buck from the Miami Marlins, signing the 2012 MLB all-star game MVP Melky Cabrera, and acquiring R.A. Dickey from the New York Mets, many people, including myself were ready to hand...

Signs of Life?

Well, it's been a pretty sweet 10 day run, eh? Obviously the sample is pretty tiny but the feeling was always (with the saner folks at least) that there was no way that guys who were established successful guys would not ALL simply go over the cliff collectively at once. As I noted in the last entry, they HAD to be better than what they were playing, whether or not they were...

Sandoval wows Kawasaki

The San Francisco Giants have crossed the border for a series against the Toronto Blue Jays. Whenever two teams who rarely play each other face off it makes for an interesting batting practice. Well Pablo Sandoval and Munenori Kawasaki got together and it was safe to say that Kawasaki was left speechless. Pablo decided to show Munenori his tattoo sleeve on his left arm and well...
