Ryu Hyun-jin’s (Toronto Blue Jays) partner Danny Jansen has been sidelined with a fractured finger.
“Wild-card chasing Toronto has lost its starting catcher,” CBS Sports reported on Wednesday (ET).
“Jansen has been placed on the 10-day disabled list (IL) with a fractured right middle finger,” Toronto said. Jansen suffered the injury on Feb. 2 against the Colorado Rockies when he was hit by a foul-tipped pitch.
Toronto manager John Schneider said, “It was a very strange injury. ”It was a very odd injury,” said Toronto manager John Schneider. Jansen joins Bo Bissett and Matt Chapman on the disabled list. It’s a red flag for Toronto’s chances of making it to fall ball.
Jansen was paired with Ryu in the game. Ryu pitched five innings at Coors Field, the graveyard of pitchers, allowing two runs (two earned) on four hits (one home run) with two walks and three strikeouts.
Jansen’s injury came after Ryu was removed from the mound. He was hit by a pitch in the sixth inning. Jansen played through the pain to finish the inning, but post-game tests revealed a fracture. 소닉카지노
Jansen has played in 86 games this season, hitting .228 with 61 hits, 17 home runs, 53 RBIs, 38 runs scored and a .786 OPS. He also hit a home run in the game, taking a load off Ryu’s shoulders.
Since returning from the disabled list, Hyun-jin Ryu has performed well alongside Jansen this season. In six games with Jansen, he is 3-1 with a 2.48 ERA, 13 runs (8 earned) in 29 innings pitched, and a 1.03 WHIP. In games where Ryu has pitched, Toronto is 5-1.
Toronto is in third place in the American League East with a 74-62 record. They are 10.5 games behind the first-place Baltimore Orioles. They are in the hunt for a wild card spot. They are currently in the fourth wild card spot. The first through third wild cards will play fall ball. They are currently 1.5 games behind the third-place Texas Rangers. It will be interesting to see how the team performs without Bissett, Chapman, and closer Jansen.
