Toronto Blue Jays player, Edwin Encarnacion, who suffered a right quadriceps strain on July 5, won't be playing for the team until August.
Encarnacion was swinging a baseball bat when he re-aggravated his injury, according to NBC Sports.
Gibbons says Encarnacion had "a little setback" on Florida. Quad "a little tender" for torque of swinging. Gonna "slow him down a hair."

The Blue Jays have not been doing well as a team since the slugger has been out of action. Toronto’s overall record is eight wins and eight losses during his absence from the lineup. That is only a .500 record.
His bat not being around on a daily basis has made the team suffer. In just 88 games this season, he has produced 26 home runs and 70 runs batted in, according to ESPN.
The Blue Jays need Encarnacion back as soon as possible so they can stay competitive during the MLB season that goes until the end of September and early October. With most of the American League East having been inconsistent all year long, Toronto can still make a push.
