Sogard was scratched from the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox with a left thumb sprain. Sogard suffered the injury diving into first base Sunday against the White Sox. It's unclear how much time he's expected to miss. Richard Urena will move in to second base in his absence, with Billy McKinney entering the lineup in left field.
Sogard is out of Saturday's lineup against the White Sox. He is hitting .212 with one home run over his last 10 games. Richard Urena will start at second base, hitting eighth.
Sogard is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the White Sox. Sogard started eight of the last nine games at second base but will take a seat as he has only one hit in his last 16 at-bats. Brandon Drury will start at second base for the Blue Jays.
Sogard was removed from Tuesday's game against the Angels due to illness. Sogard had a hit in each of his first 10 games with the Blue Jays, but the streak will come to an end Tuesday as he went 0-for-2 before exiting. The veteran infielder should be considered day-to-day for the time being.
Sogard went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's win over the A's. Getting the nod in the leadoff spot once again, Sogard took the third pitch he saw from Mike Fiers over the right-field wall for his second homer in eight games since his promotion. Sogard's .394/.444/.636 slash line is completely unsustainable -- the 32-year-old has a .632 OPS in nearly 600 career big-league games -- but the Jays have no better options for the top of their order. He played shortstop Friday, but look for Sogard to slide back to second base once Freddy Galvis (hamstring) is healthy.
