Blue Jays Operation: All 30 of the Blue Jays’ Injuries

The Toronto Blue Jays probably won’t win the pennant this year, but if there was an award for injuries, the Blue Jays would take it home. In a cruel twist of fate, they would probably trip and fall and hurt themselves in the process of accepting this award.

Taylor Cole was the latest Blue Jays player to land on the disabled list and his stint officially marks the 25th disabled list stint for the Blue Jays in 2017. Yes, the club has disabled an entire roster this year. In theory, the Blue Jays could’ve fielded a full team of broken-down players.

If anything, at least the Blue Jays have suffered a variety of injuries this year. Enough of them to make up this entire Operation board of all the various injuries sustained by Blue Jays players this year.

In total, that’s 25 Toronto Blue Jays who have been injured at some point this season and a total of 30 stints on the disabled list. Add that all up, and those 25 players have missed a total of 993 games this year for the Blue Jays.

In case you’d like to remind yourself just how injury-prone the Blue Jays have been this year, here’s a full list of all the injuries below. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself saying “who’s that?” or “oh, right” as you peruse the list.

Among the more unfortunate injuries was Darrell Ceciliani’s injury immediately after hitting a two-run home run back on May 18th in Atlanta. We learned yesterday that he underwent shoulder surgery.

Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.

      Doh! Not sure why I thought it was a grand slam for some reason.
