The All-Star was hampered in the first half by a shoulder injury, but used the break to receive treatment and it seems to have done the trick thus far.

Jose Bautista singled and launched a two-run homer in Sunday's victory over the Rays.

Chris Colabello put the Blue Jays on the board with a two-run blast in the fifth and Bautista provided some cushion with his longball in the eighth. It was Bautista's second straight game going deep, and he now has 19 home runs and 63 RBI on the season. It appears the treatment he underwent on his shoulder over the All-Star break worked.

Jose Bautista clobbered his 18th home run of the season on Saturday but it wasn't enough to lead the Blue Jays to victory over the visiting Rays.

Jose Bautista was ejected from Sunday's game against the Royals for arguing balls and strikes with home plate umpire Jerry Meals.

Bautista took exception to a questionable strike two call and was given the gate for voicing his opinion. Perhaps frustration set in from a hotly-contested, back and forth battle with the Royals all afternoon.

Jose Bautista will undergo treatment on his right shoulder during the All-Star break after aggravating the injury last week.

Bautista declined to elaborate on what kind of treatment it would be, but he's elected to have it rather than play in the All-Star Game. He said the shoulder doesn't hurt as bad now as when he first hurt it. "Ideally, with this rest and the treatment, it’ll be much better. So, that’s what I’m hoping for," Bautista said. "I haven’t heard anything from a doctor saying that this is going to be a lingering issue. But it did come back after making a few throws in Chicago."
