Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar is being sidelined – by a sneeze. Pillar is expected to miss a week to 10 days with an oblique strain sustained while sneezing on Saturday in Dunedin, Florida. Pillar, who is in contention for a starting spot, said he sneezed and felt a sharp pain in his right side, but opted not to tell trainers about it until after he was pulled in the fifth inning of Toronto’s win over a Yankees split squad. Following treatment, Pillar was advised to rest. He did not play Sunday. Pillar is batting .269 with one home run and five RBIs in 26 plate appearances this spring.
