The club released its Opening Day roster Thursday morning, and placed Tulowitzki on the 60-day disabled list as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.
That Tulowitzki’s season debut is delayed is not a surprise. The 33-year-old shortstop has been dealing with bilateral heel bone spurs in his right ankle, an ongoing issue that was aggravated during a game against the Los Angeles Angels last July. According to Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi, Tulowitzki saw a specialist on Wednesday to determine the best course of action going forward in his recovery.
Also on the DL are Anthony Alford (10-day, hamstring) and Dalton Pompey (wrist).
Here is the Blue Jays’ Opening Day roster, per the team’s press release:
PITCHERS (12): John Axford-RHP, Danny Barnes-LHP, Tyler Clippard-RHP, Marco Estrada-RHP, Jaime Garcia-LHP, J.A. Happ-LHP, Aaron Loup-LHP, Seung Hwan Oh-RHP, Roberto Osuna-RHP, Aaron Sanchez-RHP, Marcus Stroman-RHP, Ryan Tepera-RHP.
CATCHERS (2): Luke Maile, Russell Martin.
INFIELDERS (7): Aledmys Diaz, Josh Donaldson, Kendrys Morales, Gift Ngoepe, Justin Smoak, Yangervis Solarte, Devon Travis
