Rodriguez, who inked a five-year contract this offseason, has already experienced back problems many times this year. Due to back problems, he began his spring training later than expected and has been on this list of injuries. He made four game starts for the Blue Jays, going 0-1 with a 4.11 ERA prior to suffering an injury. In 15.1 innings, the 27-year-old has struck out 16 batters.

It’s unknown what role he’ll play with the Blue Jays upon his return, if all goes according to plan with his rehab assignment. The organization may choose to keep Rodriguez in Triple-A or employ him in extended relief now that Alek Manoah has taken Rodriguez’s spot in the rotation.

Regarding Votto, who sustained an ankle injury during spring training after signing with the Blue Jays, and hasn’t played in the league this season. They’ll continue to allow him to become fit enough to try, but there’s no guarantee he’ll play for Toronto because he only signed a minor league contract.

It will be one of the greatest baseball stories if the 40-year-old Votto is able to make the Jays team this year. throughout the entire year. The Toronto native played with the Cincinnati Reds for 17 years, but in a kind of lovely career irony, he is now wanting to rejoin his home team.
