Blue Jays' Edwin Encarnacion suffers setback with quad injury
The Blue Jays may not be getting slugger Edwin Encarnacion back as soon as they hoped.
It's not entirely clear what this does to Encarnacion's time-table, but MLB.com's Gregor Chisolm's hazards this educated guess:
In other words, I find it doubtful that Encarnacion returns on this current road trip. If there's no more setbacks, maybe vs Bal on Aug. 5.— Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) July 26, 2014
It doesn't sound like any sort of major stumble, but the downward-trending Blue Jays very much need their best hitter back in the lineup ASAP. This season, the 31-year-old Encarnacion is batting .277/.368/.591 (160 OPS+) with 26 homers in 88 games.
