Toronto Blue Jays infielder Maicer Izturis will require surgery to repair a completely torn ligament, announced by the team. He has been dealing with this same issue all season long and it was finally announced that he will hit the 60-day disabled list. This will keep Izturis out at least four to six months because he will need to recover.
It was announced late Friday night by the Blue Jays Twitter account that they had complete multiple roster moves before activating their shortstop Jose Reyes from the disabled list. The team chose the contract of infielder Juan Francisco from Triple-A Buffalo and transferred Izturis to the 60-day disabled list.
The 33-year-old has played in only 11 of the teams games this season. He has hit .286/.324/.314 over that span. He has no home runs and one RBI this season.
