The end of the season is nearing for the Toronto Blue Jays, but injuries continue to pile up for the team. Right-handed starting pitcher Kyle Drabek is the latest casualty, as he had to exit last night’s appearance against the Baltimore Orioles after taking a line drive off his right ankle, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com. Following his early exit, Drabek underwent X-rays to determine the extent of the damage. They came back negative, leading the team to diagnose Drabek with a bone bruise. Drabek sustained the injury when Orioles outfielder Nate McLouth sent a line drive back up the middle that connected with the right-hander’s ankle. The ball was hit with such force that it ricocheted off Drabek’s ankle and into foul territory. Adam Lind was able to tag McLouth out, but Drabek had to exit the game following the play. Drabek was able to exit the field under his own power, and the negative X-ray results are good news. Toronto is hoping the injury isn’t significant enough to impact Drabek’s offseason routine or the start of his 2014 season. He was replaced on the mound by right-hander Jeremy Jeffress.
