Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Teoscar Hernandez was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left oblique strain.
Hernandez sustained the injury while swinging the bat during Toronto’s 6-4 win over the host New York Yankees on Wednesday. Initially he shook off the team trainer and coaches as they went to check on him, however Hernandez showed discomfort after hitting a ground ball on his next swing.
The Blue Jays recalled infielder Gosuke Katoh from Triple-A Buffalo prior to Thursday’s series finale against the Yankees.
Hernandez, 29, is 6-for-19 (.316) with one home run and three RBIs in six games this season. He is coming off a career season in 2021, when he batted .296 with 32 homers and 116 RBIs.
Katoh, 27, went 0-for-5 with two RBIs in one game with Buffalo this season.
