Toronto FCs forward ranks may have taken a severe hit on Monday with Nigerian striker Bright Dike reportedly suffering a torn Achilles. The 27-year-old suffered the injury while training with Toronto FC, according to Goal.com. The injury is expected to keep him out for the year and will prevent him from participating in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Although behind the likes of Jermain Defoe and Gilberto on FCs forward depth chart, Dike was believed to be an important bench piece for the newly-remodeled Toronto squad. He was a candidate for Nigerias World Cup team, having been recalled for the teams World Cup qualification playoff against Ethiopia as well as having scored a goal in a November friendly against Italy. Dike had previously suffered a similar injury just two years ago while playing with the Portland Timbers. He scored one goal in seven appearances (five starts) with Toronto FC in 2013.

That trade didnt get the expected results for Toronto, and general manager Alex Anthopoulos is moving the team in a different direction. Bonifacio was traded by the Blue Jays on Wednesday to the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named later or cash, while Johnson will have an MRI to see how long it will take for him to recover from a strained right forearm. "Clearly they havent played and performed the way we expected them to when we acquired them, theres no doubt about that at all," said Anthopoulos when asked if he was second guessing the Marlins deal. "But the process when you go into these things you know theres no guarantees of performance. "Sometimes you have guys that perform a lot better than you thought they could both internally and externally." Bonifacio hit .218 as a utility player this season with three home runs, 20 runs batted in and 12 stolen bases. He saw time at second base, shortstop and all three outfield positions. Kansas City claimed the 28-year-old on waivers, forcing Anthopoulos to strike a deal. "It just didnt work out," said Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. "Ton of talent, got some opportunities. It just never came together on a consistent basis. We loved the guy, what he brings to the park. He shows up to play, he could make some things happen, there just wasnt enough consistency there." The Toronto front office agreed with Gibbons assessment after the trade with the Royals was complete. "I think we expected him to be a better player, a better player overall," said Anthopoulos. "I think theres no dooubt about that, we thought wed get more out of him offensively, defensively, all of it.dddddddddddd "That didnt happen. I dont want to diminish his talent or take away his work ethic." Johnson (2-6) has struggled on the mound all season with a 6.20 earned-run average. The right-hander was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 7 with a strained right forearm. An MRI scheduled for Wednesday night will decide if he plays for Toronto again this season. "Its too hard to tell," said Anthopoulos. "I think well know more tonight and certainly tomorrow and then Ill be able to make a determination." The Royals are 6 1/2 games out of first place in the American League Central and four games back of the second wild-card spot. Trading Bonifacio cleared space on the roster for outfielder Kevin Pillar, who was recalled from Buffalo. Pillar, the Blue Jays 32nd-round pick in the 2011 draft, could make his major-league debut at Rogers Centre on Wednesday night against the Boston Red Sox. "This gives us a chance to bring Pillar up and get a look at him too," said Gibbons. Toronto also announced that outfielder Colby Rasmus was on the 15-day disabled list and recalled popular infielder Munenori Kawasaki. Gibbons said that Kawasakis return to Toronto already had an impact on the Blue Jays clubhouse. "When he walked into the clubhouse you could hear that the noise level rose," said Gibbons. More changes could be in store soon for the last-place Blue Jays, who are 17 games back of the American League East-leading Red Sox. Johnson and Bonifacio are not the only pieces of the Miami trade that have had issues. Although Reyes had a hot start to the season, he missed two and a half months with a severely sprained left ankle. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
