6x All-Star José Bautista set to join Bisons Friday

Toronto Blue Jay outfielder will rehab in Buffalo over the weekend.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – One of the biggest names in the Blue Jays’ organization will be making a stop in Buffalo beginning on Friday and continuing over the weekend.

Outfielder and designated hitter José Bautista is set to make a rehab assignment with the Bisons before being re-evaluated in hopes of returning to the big league club. Bautista has been battling a turf toe injury that he suffered June 16th.

If you’re hoping to see the six-time All-Star locally, you’ll have to act fast. The Blue Jays are hoping to have him back soon.

“If all’s good, you’ll probably see him Monday I would guess,” manager John Gibbons told Sport Net.
