Lourdes Gurriel went 2-for-3 with a double in his return to the Blue Jays' lineup on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Gurriel had missed over a month with a quadriceps strain and made his return from the IL on Saturday. The infielder will be worth picking up in deeper fantasy leagues if he was dropped while he was hurt.

Lourdes Gurriel (quad) said he was moving at about 80-85 percent during a simulated game Friday and feels much better than he did testing out the quad on Atlanta.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. headed to the injured list with quad strain

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. was diagnosed with a quad strain and is being placed on the injured list, according to Ben Nicholson-Smith on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

Gurriel left Thursday's game against the Yankees after legging out an infield single. He fell awkwardly while crossing first base and stayed down, but manager Charlie Montoyo said after the game that Gurriel just had a quad cramp. An MRI apparently revealed more than a cramp, and now Gurriel will miss at least the next 10 days.
