TORONTO – Jose Bautista missed his fourth consecutive game with an inj

TORONTO – Jose Bautista missed his fourth consecutive game with an injured left hamstring when the Blue Jays took the field against the White Sox on Thursday night. Terrell McClain Jersey . He confirmed he wouldnt be able to play on Friday night either. But Bautista is progressing. “Better,” he said. “That is the best way I can describe it. It feels better than when it happened, better than the day after. So theres been a lot of progress. But Im obviously not ready to play, not today.” The first tests of Bautistas hamstring were passed on Monday and Tuesday. “Just to make sure I didnt need to go on the DL,” he said. The next test will be conducted on Saturday morning, hours before the third game of this four-game series. Bautista will run a series of sprints and, if his leg holds up, hell be available to at least pinch hit on the weekend. The Jays havent faced a left-handed starting pitcher since the Cardinals Jaime Garcia on June 8, a span of 17 games. Chicago will send three left-handers to the mound from Friday to Sunday, including most difficult challenges on Saturday (ace Chris Sale: 6-1, 2.27 ERA) and Sunday (Jose Quintana: 4-7, 3.69 ERA). Bautistas right-handed power bat would be especially welcomed. He admitted it can be difficult to remain patient as the hamstring heals. “Its tough because I dont want to handcuff the team by not being available,” said Bautista. “But at the same time I dont think I need the extra week to come back and, after two weeks, you normally would have to get some at-bats somewhere. I just dont want to go through that process because I dont feel like I need it.” In 77 games this season, Bautista is hitting .305/.433/.526 with 15 home runs and 59 walks to 48 strikeouts. He is baseballs leader in on-base percentage (.433) and bases-on-balls. Defensively, Bautistas eight outfield assists place him in a three-way tie for second. BAUTISTA CALLS FOR SUPPORT FOR ENCARNACION Edwin Encarnacion entered Thursdays action with 24 home runs, making him the major league co-leader with Baltimores Nelson Cruz. He is listed as a designated hitter on the All-Star fan voting ballot and currently sits fourth at the position behind Cruz, Bostons David Ortiz and Victor Martinez of the Tigers. Jose Bautista isnt happy about it. If the fans dont put Encarnacion into the game, Bautista expects the American League manager will. That man: former Jays skipper John Farrell. “How could you not pick the guy who is leading the league in home runs and RBIs?” asked Bautista. “Im surprised still that the fans havent come out and supported him better and hes not leading the votes for his position, but you cant control that as much as you can control a manager picking a player.” Encarnacion captured the imagination of Toronto fans and baseball in general with his 16-home run May. “I think, either way he should make the team,” said Bautista. “It would be a huge disappointment and let-down to all fans if you dont have a guy like Edwin dressed up for that game. No matter if its the other players or the manager picking him.” Bautista is the captain of the American League team for the annual Home Run Derby, which is held the night before the All-Star Game. Players who take part in the derby dont have to be participants in the game. However, Encarnacion has already told Bautista he wants no part of the derby. Bautista is actively recruiting potential derby-mates. He plans to speak to Chicagos rookie slugger, Jose Abreu (23 home runs) at some point this weekend. “I dont want to pick guys that dont want to do it and I dont want to force guys into doing it if they dont really feel like it, if theyre uncomfortable or they have some health issues,” said Bautista. “I want to win this, so Im not going to pick anybody who is going to be reserved in any way when they go and pick up a bat.” TOLLESONS VISION IMPROVING Steve Tolleson replaced Juan Francisco at third base in the seventh inning of Thursdays game against the White Sox, his first action on the homestand. He began suffering from dryness of the eyes and blurred vision on the last road trip. Tolleson made a Thursday visit to a cornea specialist, his fourth trip to an eye doctor in as many days, and came away with the diagnosis of an allergic reaction to contact lenses. Vic Beasley Jr Jersey . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason. Isaiah Oliver Jersey . -- Slugger Jose Abreu, All-Star left-hander Chris Sale and closer Matt Lindstrom are on the disabled list. http://www.cheapfalconsjerseysonsale.co … ersey-sale .com) - The New York Islanders will try to solve their issues against Central Division opponents when they visit the Minnesota Wild for Tuesdays battle at Xcel Energy Center.Jason Spezza just about saw it all in his 11 seasons in Ottawa. Now the Dallas Stars centre will see the Senators as an opponent Tuesday night for the first time since being dealt last summer. Viewers in the Ottawa region can watch all the action LIVE on TSN5 with coverage beginning at 8pm et/9pm at, while radio coverage is available on TSN 1200 in Ottawa starting at 6:30pm et. The Senators selected Spezza with the second overall pick in 2001 as part of a draft-day deal with the New York Islanders. Spezza, along with the recently retired Daniel Alfredsson, was an integral part of Ottawas run to its only Stanley Cup finals appearance in 2007 - totaling 22 points in 20 postseason games - but the duo never guided the team back to such heights. Spezza - who was named captain for 2013-14 after Alfredsson departed via free agency - expressed his desire to leave Canadas capital last offseason after missing the playoffs, and general manager Bryan Murray acquiesced by trading him to Dallas in July as part of a five-player deal. I wish I would have had longer with the C, he said Monday. It was kind of a bad one-year term, but it is what it is. Spezza trails only Alfredsson in goals (251), assists (436) and points (687) in Senators history. To a degree, he was also second to Alfredsson in the hearts of the Ottawa fans despite four 30-goal seasons and three 90-point campaigns. Theres no real explanation other than when youre in a place for so long and you dont win and you dont have success, sometimes its best to part ways and try a different way, he said. In November, Spezza signed a four-year extension worth a reported $30 million. He is second on the Stars (18-16-7) with 22 assists and third with 29 points while centering ttheir second line. Brian Hill Jersey. He has a goal and two assists in his last three games, but it has helped the Stars little as they look to end a four-game losing streak (0-2-2). Dallas blew a two-goal lead after the first period Saturday, losing 4-3 at Colorado as Spezza and leading scorer Tyler Seguin were thwarted over the final 20 minutes. I think hes been a little bit snakebit, general manager Jim Nill said of Spezza. I think theres a little bit of luck involved in this game ... last game he hit a post, so hes been snakebitten a little bit and I think the production will come back up for him. Spezza may be pushed to the top line since Seguin (illness) and Jamie Benn (unspecified injury) are questionable. The Stars will also look to jump-start a power play that has gone 0 for 14 over the last three games. The Senators (17-16-8) are 1-1-1 entering the final leg of a four-game trip after perhaps their most complete road victory, 5-1 over Arizona on Saturday two nights after losing 5-2 to Colorado. Five players scored and Ottawa ended an eight-game drought without a power-play goal by converting twice in five opportunities. We have games like we had last night, obviously, you want to keep going and continue doing all the good things that make us successful, defenseman Chris Phillips said. Its not letting yourself mentally get caught up in that roller coaster, its being level-headed and being focused and do the good things. Alex Chiasson, the only NHL-ready player the Senators received in the Spezza trade, could use a spark in his return to Dallas. Hes gone 11 games without a point but did play Saturday on the first line with Clarke MacArthur and Kyle Turris. Dallas has won five straight in this series.
