  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Retreating to bench Wednesday

    Springer is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

    After sitting out three times in four-game stretch from May 10 through 13 while he recovered from an illness, Springer started in each of Toronto's last six games while going 3-for-20 with four walks and two doubles. Despite his lackluster production over the past week, Springer isn't believed to be dealing with any physical issues, so his absence from the lineup Wednesday is most likely a maintenance day.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: On base three times Sunday

    Springer went 1-for-2 with two walks, a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Rays.

    Dropped to sixth in the batting order over the weekend, Springer responded to the move by getting on base three times, leading to his first multi-run performance since April 14. The veteran outfielder hasn't had a multi-hit game since April 24 though, slashing .156/.214/.203 in 17 contests since then without a homer. Until his bat wakes up, Springer will likely remain in the bottom half of the order.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Nabs seventh steal

    Springer went 1-for-4 with a walk, a double, a run scored and a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Orioles.

    Back in the leadoff spot, Springer reached base multiple times for the first time in 12 games, something he last accomplished April 26. It's been a tough season so far for the veteran outfielder, and through 166 plate appearances Springer is slashing a sluggish .201/.277/.295 with three homers, seven steals, six RBI and 14 runs.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Returns to lineup

    Springer (illness) will start in right field and bat leadoff in Wednesday's game in Baltimore.

    Springer has been ill and was set to sit out Tuesday for the fourth time in five games before that game was rained out, but he's feeling well enough to rejoin the starting nine Wednesday. The 34-year-old enters play Wednesday slashing just .140/.170/.160 with a 32.1 percent strikeout rate since April 25.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Sitting again Tuesday

    Springer (illness) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game at Baltimore.

    Springer returned to action Sunday after missing two games with an illness, and he's out of the lineup again Tuesday for the second straight day. It's unclear if he's expected to be back in action for Wednesday's series finale. Cavan Biggio is starting in right field versus the Orioles.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Still feeling ill

    Manager John Schneider said Monday that Springer is out of the lineup for the Blue Jays' series opener in Baltimore because he's still feeling sick, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    After sitting out Friday and Saturday due to the ailment, Springer returned to the lineup for Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Twins and played nine innings in right field while going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Despite playing a full game, Springer apparently hasn't completely shaken the illness, so he'll be back on the bench Monday. A bug seems to be making its way around the clubhouse, as Kevin Kiermaier and Justin Turner are out of the lineup for the fourth and second consecutive games, respectively, due to illnesses of their own.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Taking seat Monday

    Springer is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles.

    Springer made his return from a two-game absence due to an illness in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Twins, starting in right field and playing all nine innings while going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. The Blue Jays haven't indicated that Springer is still feeling under the weather, so his absence Monday is likely just a pre-planned maintenance day as he works his way back to full strength following the bout with the illness. Cavan Biggio will replace Springer in right field.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Returns for series finale

    Springer (illness) will start in right field and bat leadoff in Sunday's series finale against the Twins.

    Springer didn't start in either of the last two games due to an illness, though he did pinch hit for Cavan Biggio in the eighth inning of Saturday's 10-8 win. He feels well enough to check back into the lineup a day later, giving a boost to the Toronto lineup as the team looks to secure a series win.

  • Blue Jays' George Springer: Not feeling well

    Springer is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Twins due to an illness, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Davis Schneider is leading off and starting in left field Friday, and manager John Schneider said "we'll see" regarding the leadoff spot moving forward. Springer has hit there in all 35 of his starts the season, but his .206/.276/.298 slash line could soon prompt a move down the lineup.
