Gurriel (ankle) is hoping to begin baserunning drills this week, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports. Gurriel has been on the disabled list all month with a high left ankle sprain. He's been taking grounders recently and is looking to ramp things up in the coming week, barring any setbacks. Gurriel is currently two weeks into his recovery, which was given a 2-to-6 week timeline.
Gurriel (ankle) took grounders at second base Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Gurriel is one week into an absence which was originally given a rather vague 2-to-6 week timeline. The fact that he's back on the field is a good sign, though he still has several steps to make in his recovery, so it's not yet clear when he can be expected back in the lineup.
Gurriel (ankle) was moved to the 10-day disabled list Wednesday, Mike Wilner of BlueJaysTalk reports. As expected, Gurriel was placed on the DL after being diagnosed with a left high ankle sprain to go along with his Grade 1 left knee sprain. The club announced Tuesday that he will be sidelined for 2-to-6 weeks, though it will likely wind up being on the longer side of that timetable.
Gurriel was diagnosed Tuesday with a left high ankle sprain in addition to a Grade 1 left knee sprain, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports. He is expected to miss 2-to-6 weeks. While that is a pretty vague timetable, it would be wise to err on the longer side, given the diagnosis. The timing really couldn't be worse for Gurriel, as he was in the midst of a ridiculous 11-game multi-hit streak, slashing .500/.519/.740 with three home runs and a total of 25 hits over that span. Look for him to be officially placed on the disabled list Tuesday or Wednesday. Aledmys Diaz and Devon Travis should get extra at-bats while Gurriel is out.
Gurriel (ankle) is out of the lineup against the Athletics on Monday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Gurriel will stay on the bench after suffering a left knee bruise and left ankle sprain during Sunday's game versus the White Sox. He should be considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's affair. In his place, Brandon Drury will man second base and bat eighth.
