BALTIMORE – The Blue Jays have won 40 of their first 70 games thanks in no small part to the clubs better luck with the injury bug this season. NMD Replica . The weekend at Oriole Park has been less kind, with three players suffering varying degrees of injury. The worst ailment of the three, at least optically, is the deep bone bruise suffered by Adam Lind when he fouled a pitch off the top of his right foot in the sixth inning of Saturdays game. An x-ray after the game showed a deep bone bruise but no fracture. That diagnosis was backed up by a CT scan taken on Sunday morning. Lind, however, was in a walking boot and on crutches when he arrived at the ballpark. He was seen requiring the help of a golf cart to get off the team bus. R.A. Dickey played catch before the game with bullpen catcher Alex Andreopoulos. He tweaked his right groin in the seventh inning of Saturdays loss and removed himself from the game. Dickey insisted afterward his exit was a precautionary measure and expected to make his next start, scheduled for Saturday in Cincinnati. Brett Cecil is dealing with a left groin injury, which he suffered in the eighth inning of Friday nights game. He played catch before Sundays game. "He said he feels okay; not great but okay," said pitching coach Pete Walker. "He feels a little improvement from (Saturday) so treat the heck out of it today, get back in there and treat it and hopefully hes available on Tuesday." The Blue Jays decided against making rash decisions on Lind and Cecil, preferring instead to get through the series with the Orioles and into Mondays off-day before opening a three-game series at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday. A decision will have to be made by Tuesday. Manager John Gibbons worked with a three-man bench (technically a two-man bench with Lind unavailable) and an eight-man bullpen (technically a seven-man bullpen with Cecil unavailable) on Sunday. The club has an impending decision to make on the status of Colby Rasmus, who spent the weekend in Toledo while on a rehab assignment with the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons. Rasmus was to be reevaluated on Sunday. Buffalo concludes its series with the Mudhens on Sunday evening. Two outfielders, Kevin Pillar and Darin Mastroianni, are inside their 10-day option windows after being recently sent back to Buffalo. Either could be recalled if they replace a player going on the disabled list. Gibbons, at the moment, also has only one lefthander in the bullpen in Aaron Loup, although Gibbons indicated on Saturday he has confidence in some of his righthanded options to attack opposition lefthanded hitters late in games. He mentioned, specifically, Steve Delabar because of his split-fingered pitch and Sergio Santos, whose slider is as good as anyones in baseball when hes on his game. The priority is resetting the four-man bench rather than continuing with an eight-man bullpen, which essentially eliminates the chance of recalling another lefthanded reliever like Rob Rasmussen. Moving On Up Lefthanded starting pitching prospect Daniel Norris, who recently participated in the Single-A Florida State League All-Star Game, has been promoted to Double-A New Hampshire. The 21-year-old was dominant for the Dunedin Blue Jays, helping the club to the first half division title. In 13 starts, Norris went 6-0 with a 1.22 ERA, a 1.025 WHIP and 76 strikeouts in 66 1/3 innings. He had a 4.22:1 strikeout to walk ratio, easily his best output since turning pro in 2012. Norris was selected by the Blue Jays in the second round of the 2011 draft out of Science Hill High School in Johnson City, Tennessee. NMD Online .
