BOSTON — The injury woes that have plagued the Blue Jays in this crammed 2020 season has claimed another of its star players, the Toronto Sun has learned.
A source in Boston said that outfielder Teoscar Hernandez will be out of the lineup for a lengthy but undisclosed time after suffering an apparent rib injury here on Saturday night.
Hernandez, who earlier in the game had hit his team-leading 14th home run of the season, has been spectacular for the Jays in their playoff push. It’s almost certain he will spend extended time on the injury list.
An MRI is scheduled for later Sunday to determine the severity of the injury. The team is already without star shortstop Bo Bichette and closer Ken Giles and is wearing down from a gruelling 28 games in 27 days stretch. Hernandez was batting .306 and also leads the Jays in RBI with 27.
After finishing a five-game series with the Red Sox here on Sunday afternoon, the Jays return to Buffalo for what is seen as a crucial three-game set vs. The New York Yankees.
