Snider could rejoin Jays when eligible

PHOENIX -- If everything goes according to plan, outfielder Travis Snider could rejoin the Blue Jays as soon as he is eligible to be activated from the disabled list.

"I think so right now," Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos said on Friday. "It's still a little early, but that's the way it seems to me. But again, if he needs another few days or a week, that's fine."

Snider is on the 15-day DL with a sprained right wrist and will be eligible to return on May 30. The 22-year-old outfielder injured the wrist while fouling off a pitch during the third-inning of Toronto's 16-10 win over Texas on May 14.

Anthopoulos said the injury is not considered serious.

"It's not serious at all," Anthopoulos said. "The way they explained it to me is it's the equivalent of if you sprain an ankle. It's just one of those things where you need to stay off it and stay fresh. He's feeling a lot better. He just needed to let it calm down and let it heal."
