The Blue Jays placed the outfielder Teoscar Hernandez (
oblique deformation left) and right-handed Police Wilmer
(right shin bruise) on the 10-day injured list, Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi tweets. The team called the outfielder back Jonathan Davis
and right Sean Reid-Foley
to complete his list.While the severity of Hernandez’s injury is unknown, oblique issues are still a concern – especially as the regular season is in its final month. The Blue Jays, owners of a 22-18 record, are a playoff team as of now, and Hernandez has been a big contributor to their cause so far. After a pair of full seasons around the league average at home, the 27-year-old has apparently broken through with a formidable .308 / .358 / .637 line on 157 appearances at home in 2020. Hernandez ranks second among hitters qualified in 2020. home runs (14), 16th in wRC + (163) and 20th in fWAR (1.5). He also sits near the top of the league in several Statcast categories, including base expected grade point average (.443).
Defensively, Hernandez mainly managed the right ground for the Blue Jays, who also used Cavan Biggio and Derek Fisher The. But Toronto improved its indoor / outdoor depth of field by acquiring Jonathan Villar at last week’s trade deadline, and he could give the team another option as long as Hernandez is out. However, for Monday’s crucial game against the division rivals Yankees, the Blue Jays will hand Biggio over to Hernandez.
