Iz­turis may be out for sea­son

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

Toronto Blue Jays in­fielder Maicer Iz­turis is ex­pected to be out the rest of the sea­son af­ter hav­ing right shoul­der surgery, ef­fec­tively end­ing a three-year stint in Toronto that was plagued by in­juries.

Man­ager John Gib­bons said Thurs­day that the 34-year-old Iz­turis couldn’t stay healthy.

Iz­turis signed a three-year, $10mil­lion deal with Toronto in Novem­ber 2012. He hit .236 in 107 games in 2013 and sat out the last sev­eral weeks be­cause of a sore left an­kle. Eleven games into a promis­ing start to 2014, Iz­turis was lost for the year when he tripped and tore knee lig­a­ments.

This year, Iz­turis strained his groin in spring train­ing. While re­hab­bing that in­jury he in­jured his shoul­der div­ing for a ball.
