Blue Jays OF George Springer (quad) played five innings in Tuesday's rehab game for Triple-A Buffalo.
Springer went 0-for-4 as a hitter but the good news is he finished the game healthy. He'll likely play a few more games on this rehab assignment to get his timing down at the plate.
George Springer is beginning a rehab assignment on Tuesday night in Rochester with Toronto's Triple-A affiliate. He will play five innings in the field.
Charlie Montoyo said that Springer isn't coming back to be a DH, and will be activated only when he's ready to play the outfield. It's reportedly going to be a day-to-day thing, but given how much time Springer has missed, expect him to need a minimum of five rehab games or so to get his timing back. Absent a setback, he'll likely rejoin the Blue Jays sometime next week.
Blue Jays OF George Springer (quad) is “improving” but there is no timetable for a minor league rehab assignment.
Springer remains limited to jogging and there is currently no timeline for his return. He’s played in only four games this season. The Blue Jays will continue to be cautious with their star outfielder and won't rush him back into action. Springer is considered day-to-day.
George Springer has voiced eagerness to return, but in hopes of avoiding added pressure general manager Ross Atkins has opted to not have a timeline for the outfielder's return.
Springer has had trouble recovering from the injury he suffered in spring training, but when he does return fantasy owners should expect immediate value. Springer would slot right at the top of a batting lineup filled with impressive bats. Owners should try to remain patient with Springer for as long as they can.
An injury update on George Springer - he's doing some running activities. Then Springer will progress to sprints and running the bases.
It still sounds like Springer will be out for another week or so. Good to see there are no setbacks so far with fantasy managers needing his production back ASAP.
