Toronto Blue Jays There will be marquee reinforcement for the stretch run.

According to TV sports broadcaster Hazel Mai, Jays will get an outfielder George Springer Back from the injury list for tonight’s game.

“As expected, George Springer comes out of IL and will be active tonight vs the Orioles,” Mai tweeted.

The series is incredibly important and has clear playoff implications: The Blue Jays are currently second in the AL East Division with a 61–52 record and want to keep some ground between them and the Baltimore Orioles.

However, O’s are not the embarrassment she was in last season.

In fact, the Orioles are, against all odds, fighting for a spot in the playoffs.

Yes: With a record of 59-55, O is fourth in the East and only 2.5 games behind the Blue Jays before Monday’s game.

Springer ready to return

With a sweep, Baltimore could overtake the Jays in the standings, so naturally, Toronto would love to have Springer back when they are healthy.

Every report indicates that he is.

With a batting average of .251, 59 runs, 18 home runs, 49 RBI, 10 stolen bases and a .795 OPS, Springer has been one of the best and most productive hitters in the Jays lineup.

He has been suffering from swelling of the right elbow for the entire season, and was battling it as recently as early August.

He will return to the top of Toronto’s lineup for a crucial series starting tonight.

Despite trading two of his best players in Trey Mancini And George Lopez Around the time limit, Baltimore remains competitive and game-winning.

Even though they failed to make it this year, they are well prepared to make it to the playoffs next season.
