After leaving last night’s game with a strained left oblique, Blue Jays outfielder Rajai Davis was placed on the 15-day disabled list this morning.

Davis told Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca that the injury has been nagging him since earlier this week, but he appeared to aggravate it when he grounded out in the fourth inning last night. Oblique injuries tend to heal slowly, so attempting to play through the pain can be counterproductive. He’ll now get some extended rest.

Davis, 32, is batting .284/.326/.395 with one home run, four RBI and a .721 OPS in 87 plate appearances this season. He’s tied for third in the American League with eight stolen bases.

    I’m pretty sure that if I click on that link with the weird “.ca” at the end, I’ll end up on a watch list.

      Like you aren’t under steady observation already. Trust me: we know ALL about you.

      So, of course we lose Davis. He’s been going real well for My Boys. One of the few bright spots. Gonna need a AAA body now. Probably Sierra or Gose.

      What’s next, I wonder? Dengue Fever?

        Your little blubber-bound notebook doesn’t count. But, if you’re talking about the Wonder Woman comics, you’re welcome. ;)

        It appears that you’ve somehow contracted the Yankees’ DOOM. You might need to switch your research focus — in the interest of national dignity. BTW, props to you for no further crying in baseball. How’s your farm look?

        Oh, for God’s sake, BeaverMan, it’s not like we threatened to send Ted Cruz back to you. Buck up, little beaver scout.

        “Buck up”? I think you are several letters in the alphabet away from how this Beaver Season can best be described as.

        Take it from a fan who spent many years wandering the wilderness: love them for what they are and don’t have expectations otherwise, joke about how much they suck, and then savor the good moments. That and rum will really help you.

        If rum alone does do the trick, I recommed moving on to sodomy, and then the lash.

        So you’re a Cubs fan, Unlce Mo?

    Why don’t they keep him active and just make him bunt? Can he even hit the ball into the outfield if he’s healthy?

      This is not the NL and he is not a pitcher.

    Rajai you can now get that rest you badly needed, as a matter of fact take the rest of the season off and get ready for next year, the ship is sinking.

        Ha ha. Like a zoo-raised chimp, returning to his poo pile, so ‘harry returns to examine the stain he made.

        Do go bathe.
