Pearce also played five innings in left field, after starting at DH in his first two minor league rehab games.

The 35-year-old has been on the disabled list since May 3 because of an oblique strain.

Jun 10 - 12:30 PM

Steve Pearce (oblique) has progressed to taking dry swings.

He's still unable to take batting practice, but it's a small step in the right direction after he was basically stalled for a month after suffering the injury in early May. Given that he's still relegated to just swinging the bat there remains no timetable for his return.
Jun 2 - 7:34 PM

Steve Pearce has still shown little improvement with his strained oblique.

Pearce has already missed a month of action and his return is obviously not imminent. When he does make it back he'll be joining a crowded Blue Jays outfield.

Steve Pearce (ribcage) remains out of the Blue Jays' starting lineup on Wednesday afternoon.

May 2 - 10:57 AM

Steve Pearce was scratched from the Blue Jays' lineup Tuesday due to ribcage tightness.

It was initially described as a "manager's decision" by a Blue Jays spokesperson. Pearce felt the discomfort during pregame batting practice and might need to sit out a couple more games. Consider him day-to-day for now.
May 2 - 12:02 AM

Steve Pearce was scratched from the starting lineup Tuesday on a "manager's decision," per a Blue Jays spokesperson.

May 1 - 7:38 PM

Steve Pearce went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Red Sox.

He doubled and scored in the first inning, then added an RBI-single in the fifth. The 35-year-old veteran has been a solid hitter throughout his career when healthy -- the problem is he has rarely been healthy for long. He is rocking a .314/.375/.569 slash line with three homers and 11 RBI in 56 plate appearances and makes for a good fantasy play whenever he is in the Blue Jays' lineup.
Apr 25 - 11:43 PM

Steve Pearce went 1-for-3 and drove in the Blue Jays' lone run in Saturday's loss to the Yankees.

Pearce continues to perform when given the opportunity against opposing left-handers, doing so out of the leadoff spot in the lineup on Saturday. He singled in Randal Grichuk to trim their deficit to 2-1 in the fifth inning, but that would be the only time they would score. Pearce also drew a walk in the ballgame and is now slashing .304/.360/.565 with three homers and 10 RBI in 50 plate appearances this season.
