Blue Jays placed OF George Springer on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to March 29, with a left oblique strain. Springer suffered a Grade 2 strain of his left oblique around the middle of March, but he's been making swift progress in his rehab and could potentially be ready for activation when first eligible late next week. The 31-year-old outfielder signed a six-year, $150 million free agent contract with the Blue Jays this winter after posting an .899 OPS with 14 home runs, 32 RBI, and 37 runs scored in 51 games last season for the Astros.
