‘Toronto Daybreak’ Chapman Ear Bissett is on the injured list
Lightning struck the Toronto Blue Jays, which are competing to advance to the Major League Baseball (MLB) postseason. Following third baseman Matt Chapman, shortstop Bo Bissett was listed on the injured list one after another.
The Toronto team announced on the 30th (Korea Standard Time) that Bissett was on the 10-day disabled list with a right quadriceps injury.
Bissett was replaced because he felt pain in his right thigh while running to first base after hitting a grounder to second base during the fifth attack against the Cleveland Guardians on the 28th.
It is the second time in the season that Bisset is out of power. Bisset, who had previously injured his right knee in the game against the Baltimore Orioles on the 1st, joined the team on the 20th, but after playing only 8 games, he collapsed again with an injury.
Toronto coach John Schneider said Bisset’s injury was “minor” and that he would “rest for a few days and be ready to play again in 10 days.”
Bisset is Toronto’s key hitter, and in 114 games this season, he recorded a batting average of 0.314, 152 hits, 18 homers, 62 RBIs, 54 runs, and an OPS (on-base percentage + slugging percentage) of 0.832.
Toronto lost two key infielders in one day. On the 29th, Chapman was placed on the disabled list due to a sprained ligament in the middle finger of his right hand.
Chapman also complained of pain in the middle finger of his right hand during the 6th inning against Cleveland on the 28th, and ended the game early. Chapman often missed this month due to finger pain, but the injury got worse.
Chapman played 125 games this season, posting a batting average of 0.248, 113 hits, 15 homers, 50 RBIs, 61 runs, and an OPS of 0.769.
Meanwhile, Toronto called up Mason McCoy, who was acquired through a trade with the Seattle Mariners last month, in place of Bisset.
