Blue Jays: The injured

In reality, the Blue Jays' injury situation isn't particularly worrisome, with just six players listed at the time of writing. And even two of those are only recent additions which are very short-term.

The two players in question are Brandon Belt and Kevin Kiermaier, who have left hamstring tightness and left wrist bruising respectively. Both players have been listed as day-to-day with their injuries, although Kiermaier has still been appearing in games as a pinch runner.

Danny Jansen has been out since May 26, retroactive to May 25, with a left groin strain. However, he is set to return to the Blue Jays sometime this week, potentially as soon as Tuesday after the team's day off on Monday.

Turning to Zach Pop, there is slightly more uncertainty surrounding him after recently dealing with some renewed right hamstring discomfort. He is projected to return between mid-to-late June, but it is probably safer to lean towards the latter.

The final two players on the injured list are both pitchers recovering from Tommy John Surgery. More specifically, Hyun Jin Ryu and Chad Green.

Ryu has been reportedly looking fantastic physically after losing weight, and has a chance to return after the All-Star break. Meanwhile, the timeline surrounding Green's return is slightly more ambiguous, with it simply stated as being sometime during the second half of the season.
