Jose Bautista was in sudden, excruciating pain when he injured his left wrist on July 16, yet the Blue Jays came back the next day and said the injury was merely an inflamed tendon.

Color me stunned that there may be more to it than that.

Bautista, who last swung a bat on Wednesday, is set for another MRI on the wrist this week because of continued pain in the area.

Of course, the Jays are still trying to leave as much room for optimism as they can. Just look at all of the modifiers in the first sentence of this quote:

“He’s still complaining of some soreness in one small area, there’s a recommendation of a follow-up MRI just to compare it to the original MRI,” manager John Farrell told Shi Davidi of “We’ll have further information once the MRI is complete.”

Some, one tiny little area, just to be on the safe side… well, surely he’ll be back in no-time flat.

    Gee, and how long was Feliz gone before they determined he’d need TJ surgery?

    I sure hope it’s not ligament/tendon damage. The wrist is one of the most complicated joints in the body. In fact, it’s not possible to be a productive power hitter with a hampered wrist. We’ll have to wait and see. Hard luck Jays.

    I mentioned the other day that he seemed to be out a long time for a sprain and was wondering when they were going to do a second MRI to make sure they didn’t miss something. My post was greeted with a plethora of thumbs down…much like this one will surely get. Let ’em fly, beeches!!!
