Blue Jays place Rasmus on DL for remainder of the season

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus has been placed on the disabled list and is out for the remainder of the 2013 season.

 

Rasmus left Friday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox after he was hit in the face with a ball while jogging out to the field in the middle of the first inning.

Rasmus, who was just activated from the disabled list last week, was heading to centre field when a ball came from the direction of right fielder Anthony Gose and hit him in the face.

Rasmus becomes the third Blue Jay this week to be shut down for the remainder of the season after Edwin Encarnacion (wrist) and Brett Cecil (elbow) were placed on the disabled list on Sept. 17.
