Jose Bautista back on the DL after just 5 plate appearances

Bad day for Joey Bats…only Matty the Horse had a worse one.

After just five plate appearances and no hits, Toronto’s Jose Bautista is back on the disabled list. Bautista left Saturday’s game in the third inning with discomfort in his left wrist—the same wrist that cost him nearly six weeks on the DL.

Bautista was sidelined from mid-July until Friday, when he returned for the Blue Jays’ 6-4 loss to the Orioles in Baltimore. As soon as Bautista complained about his wrist, manager John Farrell pulled him from the game.

“Given what he means to us, not just in the current, but in the long term, as a precautionary measure we felt we needed to get him out of there,” Farrell told reporters, according to teh Associated Press.

Bautista said he thinks he re-injured the wrist in his only at-bat on Saturday.

“Maybe it’s one of those swings I took today,” he told the AP. “One of those swings on my first at-bat I started feeling something. I think I did the proper thing telling them. Doctor says it’s nothing to panic about.”

He said the pain is “nothing like what I felt the first time.”

Might as well shut him down for the year, I'd think

In a 16 team league, I have Bautista, Votto, ARod, Morrow and Colby Lewis. It has not been a good month.

And yet still better than the disaster in Toronto.

Matty the Horse was actually an undercover mounted police officer.

Can you be undercover and mounted at the same time?

That's why he's dead.

I suppose CPR is tougher while mounted undercover

Since it is Jays related (as I am a Jays fan), the Nottingham Rebels won the AA National Championship today. Woot!
