by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios was placed on the minor-league injured list Tuesday and is expected to be sidelined 6-to-8 weeks by a hand injury, Buffalo Bisons broadcaster Pat Malacaro reports.

The 25-year-old appeared in 10 games for the Blue Jays during April as an injury replacement, and he went 7-for-28 with four RBI and seven runs in his first taste of big-league action. Palacios was at Triple-A Buffalo and will now be sidelined until at least early July due to the unspecified hand injury.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios was optioned to the Blue Jays' alternate training site Saturday.

Palacios had started just two of the last four games and went hitless with a run, one walk and two strikeouts in seven at-bats during that time. He'll now head back to the alternate training site as part of a shuffle after Jordan Romano (elbow) and Ty Tice were added to the major-league roster Saturday.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios isn't starting Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals.

Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Draws fifth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios will start in right field and bat ninth Wednesday against the Yankees.

Palacios appears to have settled in as the primary replacement for Teoscar Hernandez in the corner outfield after the latter was placed on the COVID-19 injured list following his positive test for the coronavirus. The 25-year-old will be picking up his fifth straight start Wednesday after going 5-for-13 with five runs and three RBI through his first four games.

Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Collects first four big-league hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios went 4-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and four runs scored Saturday in a 15-1 win over the Angels.

Palacios' second big-league start was one for the record books as he became the second player in American League history to collect at least four hits and at least four runs in one of his first two games. The 25-year-old is currently on the big-league squad as a temporary replacement for Teoscar Hernandez (COVID-19 IL), but he could earn a longer look if he continues to collect hits as he did Saturday.

Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Called up and starting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios has been recalled by the Blue Jays and will start Friday's game against the Angels, Keegan Matheson of reports.

Palacios was sent to Triple-A Buffalo ahead of Opening Day, but he'll rejoin the major-league club after Teoscar Hernandez was placed on the COVID-19 injured list due to being exposed to someone who'd tested positive outside of the team. Palacios will take Hernandez's place in right field for Friday's matchup, batting ninth.

Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

Palacios was always a long shot to crack the Opening Day roster, as he's yet to play a game above Double-A. He gave it his best shot this spring, hitting .400/.455/.800, which could help his case for a promotion should an injury strike one of the outfielders ahead of him on the depth chart.

Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Racking up XBH
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios went 3-for-3 with a home run and five RBI in Friday's spring game against the Orioles.

It's going to be tough for Palacios to land a spot on the Blue Jay's Opening Day roster given the team's outfield depth, but he is giving it his best effort thus far, going 5-for-9 (.555) with four extra-base hits and six RBI through four appearances this spring.

Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios was added to the Blue Jays' 40-man roster Friday.

Palacios failed to make his major-league debut during the shortened 2020 season, but he'll be protected from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. The 25-year-old had a .372 OBP with eight home runs and 15 stolen bases at the Double-A level in 2019.

Blue Jays' Josh Palacios: Claims 60-man spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays added Palacios to their 60-man roster pool Thursday.

Palacios, utility man Patrick Kivlehan and pitcher Bryan Baker all joined the 60-man pool, bringing the Blue Jays' total to 62 men. As Shi Davidi of notes, teams can only exceed the 60-man limit by placing players on the COVID-19 injured list, which suggests at least two Blue Jays included in the roster pool have tested positive for the coronavirus. A 24-year-old outfielder, Palacios hasn't played above the Double-A level and likely represents little more than emergency depth for the Blue Jays.

Blue Jays' Joshua Palacios: Returns from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios was activated from the disabled list and returned to the lineup at Low-A Lansing,'s Keegan Matheson reports.

The outfield prospect came off the 7-day DL as soon as he was eligible -- suggesting his undisclosed injury was nothing too serious. Palacios, 21, is coming off an impressive first year as a professional and looking to ascend through the Jays system in 2017.

Blue Jays' Joshua Palacios: On minor-league DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Palacios is on the 7-day DL at Low-A Lansing with an undisclosed injury,'s Mike Rosenbaum reports.

The injury is classified as a "minor setback" for Toronto's fourth-round pick from last year, but it remains unclear what the exact injury is. In a fairly shallow system, Palacios is noteworthy for his plate skills (26:18 K:BB in 50 games last year) and above-average speed, although he is unlikely to ever be more than a fourth outfielder down the road.
