Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Keeps raking this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel went 2-for-2 with two doubles, a HBP, three runs scored and two RBI in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.

The 26-year-old is still looking for his first spring homer, but it seems only a matter of time before he goes yard -- Gurriel is slashing .360/.429/.560 through 28 plate appearances with five doubles as he gets ready for an Opening Day assignment as the Jays' starting left fielder.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: In line to hit third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo said Thursday that he plans to have Gurriel bat third for the Blue Jays this season, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

Gurriel initially looked in line to bat fourth or lower in the Jays' lineup, but Montoyo opted to move him up to third after Vladimir Guerrero expressed a desire to bat cleanup so he would have the benefit of seeing how pitchers attack Gurriel beforehand. Given his 4.8 percent career walk rate, Gurriel doesn't fit the profile of the typical disciplined No. 3 hitter, but the Blue Jays should be able to compensate for his free-swinging ways by surrounding him with three high on-base bats in Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio and Guerrero. If he can stick in a prominent lineup spot all season, Gurriel should easily surpass his 2019 totals in both RBI (50) and runs (52).

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Could see time at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel could see occasional action at first base this season, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

The 26-year-old will be the Jays' regular left fielder after hitting 20 home runs with an .868 OPS through 84 games last year, but depending on the makeup of the team's bench, Gurriel could also back up Travis Shaw at first base. "I could see him playing first also, to help us out for a game or two," manager Charlie Montoyo said. "We're facing a lefty or something, he could play first because he's got good hands. I already know that so that could happen." Shaw and Rowdy Tellez, the other 1B/DH on the roster, both hit left-handed, so Gurriel could become the top platoon option at 1B, potentially giving him some extra position eligibility in 2020.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Shifts to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (chest) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

This move is simply procedural, as Gurriel has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery to remove his appendix. The 25-year-old, who slashed .277/.327/.541 with 20 home runs and six steals in 84 games this season, is expected to be ready for the start of spring training. Ryan Dull was added to the 40-man roster in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel underwent surgery to remove his appendix Wednesday, according to his personal Twitter account.

Gurriel noted everything went well. He's already been ruled out for the remainder of the season but should be ready to go by the time spring training rolls around. Across 84 games this season, Gurriel posted a .277/.327/.541 triple-slash with 20 home runs and six steals.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel will be shut down for the remainder of the year due to appendicitis, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Gurriel is set to have his appendix surgically removed, so there's no chance he'll be able to return this season with only five games remaining. He should be ready to roll for the start of spring training, but the team will know more about his availability moving forward after the procedure.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel is not in Sunday's lineup against the Yankees.

The team has taken a cautious approach with Gurriel since his return from a quadriceps injury on Sept. 14 as he'll rest for the third in the team's last eight games. Derek Fisher will draw the start in left field and bat ninth in his place.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Cranks 20th homer Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, two runs and two RBI in the Blue Jays' 8-4 loss to the Orioles on Thursday.

It was long ball No. 20 of the season for Gurriel, who touched up Gabriel Ynoa with a fourth-inning solo blast. He's only played 82 games due to injury, but he's done well when he's been in the lineup, posting a .284/.335/.556 slash line over 306 at-bats, with 19 doubles and a pair of triples to go along with the 20 homers.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Orioles.

Gurriel has been limited to designated hitter duty since returning from a quadriceps injury Saturday. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will fill that position on this occasion, with Brandon Drury starting at third base.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel is not in the lineup Sunday against the Yankees.

Gurriel returned from a quadriceps injury to start as the designated hitter Saturday, going 2-for-3 with a double. He won't be asked to start two games in a row right away.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Activated, hitting third Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (quadriceps) was activated from the 10-day injured list and is hitting third and starting at designated hitter Saturday against the Yankees, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

One of the streakiest hitters in the big leagues, Gurriel had cooled off significantly prior to landing on the IL. He hit .232/.283/.394 with three home runs and three steals in 26 second-half games after slashing .303/.355/.626 in 53 games before the All-Star break. The Blue Jays will manage Gurriel's workload down the stretch, given the nature of the injury he is returning from. Manager Charlie Montoyo said there is a good chance Gurriel will sit out Sunday's game, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Could return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (quadriceps) felt good after running the bases Friday and could return as soon as Saturday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Gurriel has missed over a month with a quadriceps strain. He seemed to suffer a setback Tuesday, but the issue was evidently a minor one. He's expected to be eased back into action with some time at designated hitter.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Feeling better
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel said his quadriceps feels great Thursday, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

This is encouraging news after Gurriel experienced some soreness during a pregame workout Tuesday. While the Blue Jays have not yet clarified when the 25-year-old will be activated from the injured list, Mitchell reports the outfielder appears close to a return.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel's left quad is a bit sore after doing pregame work Tuesday, but the Blue Jays have no plans to shut him down for the season, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

It does not sound like his activation is imminent, and while he has not been shut down for the season, it does sound like his season is in jeopardy. Gurriel has been on the shelf since Aug. 8.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Set for another sim game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (quadriceps) is scheduled to participate in a simulated game Friday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

Gurriel was originally expected to play in a simulated game Thursday, but the team wanted to give him an extra day after he reported some soreness following his simulated game in Atlanta earlier in the week. It sounds like he could return over the weekend if everything goes off without a hitch Friday, though it's more likely that he'll rejoin the Blue Jays when the team returns home to take on the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Takes batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (quadriceps) completed a round of live batting practice Sunday at Rogers Centre, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

The activity represents another step forward in Gurriel's recovery from the left quad strain, which has kept him idle since Aug. 8. He's expected to get in more simulated work within the next few days before potentially returning from the 10-day injured list as soon as Thursday's game against the Rays.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (quadriceps) is expected to return from the 10-day injured list before the Blue Jays travel to Tampa on Sept. 5, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

A quadriceps strain has kept Gurriel out of action for three weeks. He's expected to begin a rehab assignment early next week, with his activation coming soon afterwards.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Rehab starting next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (quadriceps) is expected to begin a rehab assignment early next week, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

Gurriel has been dealing with a quadriceps strain since early August. If he is indeed able to start his rehab assignment as scheduled, he'd be on track to return sometime in early September.

Blue Jays' Lourdes Gurriel: Nearing return to running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gurriel (quadriceps) is expected to progress to running in the next few days, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Gurriel underwent an additional MRI over the weekend which revealed reduced inflammation, paving the way for him to ramp up his rehab work. The 25-year-old has been targeting a return at the end of August, but he'll need to progress quickly in order for that to become a reality.
