The Jays are hopeful that Bautista (wrist) will be able to return before the end of the season despite his latest setback, the team's official site reports.
Recommendation: Bautista felt some discomfort in his wrist while attempting to swing a bat earlier this week and backed off on his rehab at the advice of his hand specialist. He had originally hoped on a speedy return, but that's out the window. We'll have a better idea on his status when he attempts to swing again, but those in weekly formats will want to stash him on their bench this week. "We don't feel and I don't think Jose feels his season is over," manager John Farrell said. "But at the same time we don't want to rush something that ends up causing further damage and potentially leads to something else being needed."
The Blue Jays have been down right junk this year when it comes to injuries, giving quality diagnosis, and getting them on the field. Santos went from out for a few weeks to done for season, Morrow has a hamstring strain that has cost him 2+ months. I'm half tempted to just cut Bautista at this point.
