The Toronto Blue Jays have lost their starting third baseman and now their starting shortstop.

The Blue Jays announced on Tuesday that they have placed Bissett on the disabled list with a right quadriceps strain.

Bissett left a home game against the Cleveland Indians on Aug. 28 with a quad injury.

At the time, Toronto head coach John Schneider explained that Bissett had been playing with the injury for a while and needed to be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. He had it checked out and it wasn’t something that would be resolved in 10 days.

On the day he placed Bisset on the disabled list, Schneider told Sportsnet and other local media that the injury was “minor,” but that he would need 10 days of rest.카지노사이트

This is his second trip to the disabled list. He injured his right knee during a home game against the Baltimore Orioles on Aug. 1 and returned on Aug. 20 against the Cincinnati Reds, only to be sidelined eight games later with another injury.

In his last eight games, Bissett was 8-for-35 with one double, one home run, three RBIs and eight strikeouts with no walks.

Mason McCoy, 28, was called up. He was acquired from the Seattle Mariners on July 27 in exchange for right-hander Trent Thornton.

After six seasons in the minors and 653 games, McCoy is close to making his big league debut. In 108 games at Triple-A for the Mariners and Blue Jays this season, he was batting .226 with a .324 on-base percentage, .383 slugging percentage, 12 home runs, 64 RBIs and 23 doubles.

Schneider called McCoy “a very good defender and a very good baserunner. He’s a ‘blue-collar’ player who has worked his whole career to get here.”

He said that Ernie Crescent, Santiago Espinal, and McCoy will play shortstop during Bissett’s absence, and that they will address the shortstop void “in a very weird, dirty, ugly, crazy way.”
