After three weeks off due to a right wrist injury, Colby Rasmus was activated from the disabled list by the Blue Jays prior to Friday’s game.
Rasmus is hitting just .216/.239/.398 with three homers and 12 RBI in 23 games since arriving from the Cardinals prior to the deadline. He appeared to find his stroke in the middle of last month, going 7-for-20 with two homers, three doubles and seven RBI in a five-game span, but he went hitless in his final four games before landing on the DL.
With Rasmus back, the Jays will have to pick between Eric Thames and Adam Loewen for one outfield spot most days. Loewen has gone 5-for-14 with a homer and three RBI in four starts since his callup earlier this month, so the Jays will likely want to take a longer look at hom, particularly since he’ll be out of options next spring. Thames has been solid, hitting .265/.314/.457 with 10 homers, but he’s already had 313 at-bats to show what he can do.
