Bautista set for another MRI on injured wrist
ST. PETERSBURG -- Jose Bautista is set to undergo another MRI on his injured left wrist within the next couple of days.

Bautista hasn't played since spraining his wrist during a game against the Yankees on July 16. He was eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 1, but is not yet close to a return.

The Dominican native had resumed swinging a bat, but was then shut down last Thursday. He will have the wrist re-evaluated in Florida by Dr. Douglas Carlin to ensure there isn't a significant problem.

"He is still complaining of some soreness in one small area," manager John Farrell said. "There's a recommendation of a follow-up MRI just to determine and compare it to the original MRI. We'll have further information after the MRI is complete."

Bautista is hitting .244 with 27 home runs and 65 RBIs in 90 games this season. He also has an .894 OPS and 41 extra-base hits in what had been another successful year in the middle of Toronto's batting order.
