The Toronto Blue Jays announced on Wednesday that outfielder George Springer is heading back to the 10-day injured retroactive to Monday after re-aggravating his right quad strain, per Shift Davidi of Sportsnet.ca. To replace Springer’s spot on the roster, the Blue Jays recalled outfielder Jonathan Davis from Triple-A.
Springer just returned last week from the injured list after missing most of Spring Training and the first month of the season due to an oblique and quad strain injuries. The former Astros outfielder made his regular season debut on April 28 against the Washington Nationals.
Springer went 0-for-4 at the plate as the Blue Jays’ designated hitter. He went on to play as the team’s DH in their three-game set against the Atlanta Braves. On May 3, Springer was 2-for-5 at the plate with 2 home runs and 3 RBI. With the 31-year-old outfielder on the shelf for the time being, the Blue Jays will continue to play Randal Grichuk in center. Grichuk has been a standout star in DFS this season, slashing a career-high .302/.342/.481 with 5 HRs and 21 RBI.
