The MLB's battle with illness continues as Toronto Blue Jays slugger Justin Turner has been hit by the flu bug.


Turner will miss today's game against the Baltimore Orioles but is expected to return on Friday when the Blue Jays face the Tampa Bay Rays.

With Turner out, Daniel Vogelbach will slot into the designated hitter spot and take Turner's place in the batting order. The Blue Jays will hope for Turner to make a speedy recovery, as they need his bat back in the lineup at full strength.


As the league grapples with this recent wave of illness, teams must remain resilient and have depth to fill in for ailing players like Turner. All eyes will be on his recovery timeline ahead of the Rays series this weekend.
