Blue Jays’ George Springer day-to-day, ‘still feeling it’ in quad

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 is “still feeling it in his quad” and is day-to-day, Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo told reporters ahead of the club’s game Tuesday against the Oakland Athletics.

Montoyo said the Blue Jays are being cautious with Springer — who they signed to a six-year, $160-million contract in the off-season.

“We want him to be comfortable,” said Montoyo, per Sportsnet‘s Arden Zwelling.

Montoyo added that Springer doesn’t need to go on the injured list right now and the hope is that he’ll be “all right in the next couple of days.”

The star outfielder spent the beginning of the season recovering from separate oblique and quadriceps issues.

Springer hasn’t played since Sunday when he was lifted in the sixth inning of the club’s 7-2 win over the Atlanta Braves due to leg fatigue.

The three-time all-star sat out Monday’s opener vs. the Athletics in what Montoyo said was a planned day of rest.

The 31-year-old made his Blue Jays debut on April 28 and served as the team’s designated hitter for four games, recording a .200 batting average with two home runs and three RBI in 15 at-bats.

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