Blue Jays OF George Springer undergoes MRI after experiencing quad tightness

George Springer will have to wait a little longer to make his Toronto Blue Jays' debut. 

The star outfielder underwent an MRI after feeling quad tightness while running the bases during a live batting practice on Tuesday, according to SportsNet's Shi Davidi. 

Springer participated in a live batting practice as part of his rehab from a Grade 2 oblique strain. He began the 2021 season on the 10-day injured list. The 31-year-old is eligible to return to the team on Thursday, but it certainly sounds like his latest injury will delay his debut even further. 

Springer signed a six-year, $150 million deal with the Blue Jays during the offseason after spending seven seasons with the Houston Astros. 

Toronto is tied for the AL East lead with a 3-2 record and will look for another victory on Wednesday against the Texas Rangers.
