Blue Jays' Springer will not play in Monday's game vs. Athletics

Ben Wagner joins Martine Gaillard to break down how the Toronto Blue Jays should deal with the latest development regarding George Springer's health and why Randal Grichuk has been so effective at the plate this season.

George Springer will not be in the Toronto Blue Jays' lineup on Monday night when they take on the Oakland Athletics.

Springer made his Blue Jays debut and spent a few games as the team's designated hitter before leaving Sunday's game early due to fatigue. Earlier in Sunday's game, Springer appeared to grab at his leg when sprinting to first base.

Ahead of Monday's game, manager Charlie Montoyo said the day of rest for Springer "was already planned." As for availability during the game, Montoyo said it depends on how the star outfielder is feeling, but he would prefer to give Springer a full day off.

After Sunday's game, Montoyo insisted that Springer did not aggravate a previous injury, and the team was being cautious with its star player.

You can watch the Blue Jays take on the Athletics starting at 9:40 p.m. ET on Sportsnet ONE and Sportsnet NOW.
