Blue Jays OF Grichuk back 2 days after colliding with chair
Grichuk as starting in right field and batting fifth as the Blue Jays played at Boston on Tuesday night.
Toronto had Monday off, which gave Grichuk a chance to rest and be re-evaluated after leaving Sunday’s game against Cleveland in the fourth inning. He was injured when he slid while catching a foul ball at Toronto. A guard seated near the stands didn’t see Grichuk coming, and was holding a metal stool when the accident occurred.
Concussion tests were negative. Grichuk was left with a bloody nose, swollen left eye socket and a few facial cuts.
“My mom always said I had a hard head. Guess she was right,” Grichuk posted Monday on Twitter.
