Blue Jays #2 Troy Tulowitzki Green Salute to Service Stitched MLB Jersey

Toronto has placed Troy Tulowitzki on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. He joins star Josh Donaldson and other key Blue Jays on the shelf in a frustrating start to their season.

Tulowitzki removed himself from Friday night’s 13-inning, 8-7 victory over the Los Angeles Angels in the eighth inning after taking third base on a wild pitch by Cam Bedrosian.

Tulowitzki’s hamstring is the latest in a string of injuries this season for Toronto, which already has placed third baseman Donaldson (calf), left-hander J.A. Happ (elbow) and right-hander Aaron Sanchez (finger) on the disabled list.

Toronto manager John Gibbons said the new 10-day DL was “definitely a factor” in the move.

“It’s a good rule change,” Gibbons said. “We can’t take any chances.”

Toronto called up RHP Leonel Campos from Triple-A Buffalo to help a depleted bullpen.

Ryan Goins replaced Tulowitzki at shortstop in Toronto’s lineup on Saturday night.

Troy Tulowitzki and Josh Donaldson are both nearing a return, but Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said each player still needs more time to recover.

Toronto Blue Jays manager John Gibbons admitted on Wednesday he might have been too optimistic when he provided an injury update on shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and third baseman Josh Donaldson earlier this week.

According to MLB.com’s Gregor Chisholm, the Blue Jays skipper said neither player suffered a setback, but both would be out a little longer than he anticipated.

Tulowitzki will more than likely return to the lineup before Donaldson does but he still needs to play in at least one more rehab game, meaning the earliest he can return is Friday. However, Gibbons said Tulo would “need a couple of more days,” so I would guess he plays Thursday and possibly Friday with Dunedin and then returns to the lineup on Saturday or Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles.

Tulo was originally scheduled to return against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday, but his rehab assignment with Dunedin got off to a late start and it sounds like the team wants to give him more reps before returning to the lineup.

As for Donaldson, it’s tough to project any sort of timetable for him since he is yet to begin a rehab assignment. Unless something drastically changes, though, I think it’s safe to say Donaldson will not be playing in this weekend’s series against the Orioles. Next week’s series against the Milwaukee Brewers is a possibility, however, but until he ramps up his activity I think the end of May when the Blue Jays return home is a more realistic target date.
