Bautista Keeps Jays Lid for AA Rehab Stint

Written By:  •  Friday, August 24, 2012

Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista was down in Manchester, NH last night completing his rehab stint while recovering from a wrist injury.

While Bautista was technically a member of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats for the game, he still decided to wear his Toronto Blue Jays batting helmet and blue undershirt despite the Fisher Cats wearing black for both.

The blue actually looks a lot better with that Fisher Cats uniform than the black does, they might want to look into making that switch.

As for why Jose wore his Jays gear down in a Double-A game?  Perhaps it was for good luck, Bautista hit two home runs in the game.  Guess that wrist has healed.

  • I agree that it looks good, and IMO it would look great with a full makeover that would put blue as the primary color of the wordmark instead of navy (?). Is it navy? The unis would look so much more lively.

      yes it is navy but they just remade their logos over from green yellow black and brown

    I think most rehab guys wear their MLB helmets. The minor leaguers are required to wear double-flap helmets, while apparently guys with a rehab designation are not.

    I noticed Ryan Kalish wear his Boston helmet while with Portland this year. It still had his “55” sticker on the back, while he was wearing a No. 38 Sea Dogs jersey.

      Thanks Eli, I was unaware of that

    It still looks weird. This is a team sports, so even if you do not like the uniform you should wear it just like the rest of the team. Even if you are superstitious and belt two homers in a game. But the Fisher Cats need a livelier tone of blue in ther uniforms, that is for sure.
