Blue Jays' George Springer leaves game vs. Rays after spraining ankle on catch attempt


Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer left Friday night’s video game versus the Tampa Bay Rays (GameTracker) with what the group referred to as a left ankle sprain. Springer suffered the injury when he tried to make a jumping grab on a Brandon Lowe batted ball in the bottom of the 2nd inning. 

Here’s a take a look at the play:

Springer was changed in the subsequent inning by Raimel Tapia.

Springer, 32 years of ages, got in the night striking .283/.344/.531 (159 OPS+) with 7 crowning achievement and 2 taken bases (on 3 shots). His previously mentioned 159 OPS+ was connected with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. for the very best amongst certified Blue Jays players. Toronto’s lineup, then, will be missing out on a crucial part if Springer’s ankle needs him to hang around on the hurt list.

Should Springer undoubtedly head to the rack, he would sign up with a couple of other noteworthy Blue Jays there, consisting of Cavan Biggio, Nate Pearson, and Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Blue Jays are anticipated to trigger Ryu ahead of Saturday’s video game, a contest he’s anticipated to begin.

The Blue Jays, for their part, entered into Friday’s video game having actually dropped 4 successive contests. Their 17-15 record on the season had them placed in 3rd location in the American League East, some 6 ½ video games back of the New York Yankees.
