Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista exited last
night’s contest against the Cleveland Indians after twisting his ankle, reports
John Lott of The National Post.
Bautista twisted ankle when he hit base in 8th, Gibbons says not thought serious, re-evaluate tomorrow.

Bautista left the game in the eighth inning after twisting his
ankle while stepping on a base. While Toronto pulled the slugger from the game,
the injury wasn’t thought to be serious at the time.
Manager John Gibbons confirmed this, as did Bautista himself
after the game. He told Shi Davidi of Sportsnet that trainers took a look at
his ankle after he came out of the game. They told him that “it’s good to go,”
calling it “nothing serious.”
Toronto said more would be known today, depending on how the
ankle responds. However, it seems like a good bet Bautista won’t be forced to
miss much, if any, time due to the injury.
Bautista was 1-for-4 last night with three runs batted in,
including his second home run of the season, a two-run shot in the first inning
off Brett Myers.
