Blue Jays OF George Springer undergoes MRI on quad bike
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 tension while performing the basics during a live batting practice Tuesday, according to SportsNet’s Shi Davidi.
Springer participated in a live batting practice as part of his rehabilitation from a grade 2 oblique stump. He started the 2021 season on the 10-day injured list. The 31-year-old is eligible to return to the squad on Thursday, but it certainly looks like his latest injury will delay his debut even further.
Springer signed a six-year, $ 150 million contract with the Blue Jays in the offseason after spending seven seasons with the Houston Astros.
Toronto is tied for the lead of the AL East at 3-2 and will seek another win on Wednesday against the Texas Rangers.
