Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr. will have a second MRI on his injured left quad on Sunday, according to TSN Blue Jays reporter Scott Mitchell.
Gurriel is targeting the Aug. 30 to Sept. 1 series with the Houston Astros as a potential return date, but he said the likely plan is to play a rehab game or two in Florida prior to re-joining the big club.
Gurriel was injured last Friday night and placed on the 10-day injured list. The move, announced last Saturday, is retroactive to Aug. 9.
Gurriel is batting .279 with 19 home runs and 47 runs batted in this season.
The Jays will begin a series with the Seattle Mariners at home on Friday evening.
