George Springer's injury troubles are not over yet.

The Toronto Blue Jays placed the outfielder on the 10-day injured list with a right quad strain, the team announced. The move is retroactive to Monday, according to Sportsnet's Shi Davidi.

Outfielder Jonathan Davis was recalled and will be active for Wednesday's game in Oakland.

Springer returned from his season-opening stint on the IL last week but was removed from Sunday's game with what the club described as leg fatigue. The 31-year-old went for an MRI on Wednesday that showed he'd re-aggravated his earlier quad injury, according to Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun.

The UConn product signed the largest free-agent contract in Blue Jays history this winter but has appeared in just four games with the team. Springer suffered an oblique injury in spring training and initially hurt his quad muscle while rehabbing that issue.
