Toronto Blue Jays designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion left Sunday’s game early after getting hit on his right wrist by a pitch from Daniel Bard.
Encarnacion, and early season MVP candidate, stayed in the game after several minutes with the Blue Jays training staff, only to be removed for Jeff Mathis later in the game.
An MRI taken after the game showed that Encarnacion suffered a bruised, but not broken hand, and the team believes that the 29 year old DH will be day to day with the injury.
The Blue Jay designated hitter is tied for second in the American League with 17 home runs, and trails just Josh Hamilton and Miguel Cabrera for the lead in RBIs.

The Toronto Blue Jays are trying to end their longest road losing streak of the season.
A visit to Chicago might not provide the ideal opportunity to get it done.
The Blue Jays look to avoid a sixth consecutive road loss Tuesday night against the AL Central-leading White Sox.

After sweeping the Orioles, I wasn’t quite sure how the Blue Jays would do against the Boston Red Sox this past weekend.
Well, the Jay’s winning streak came to an end on Friday, as the Jays got hammered 7-2. Earlier in the game, their defense was good, but they were unable to produce runs, which allowed Boston to break the game wide open in the middle and late innings. ...
Jose Bautista hit a three-run home run, rookie Drew Hutchison won for the fourth time in five starts and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Boston Red Sox 5-1 Sunday to avoid a three-game sweep.
In an ill-tempered game that featured four hit batters, home plate umpire Mike Winters warned both benches after Boston's Kevin Youkilis was drilled on the shoulder in the sixth. Youkilis...
TORONTO - Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison has found his release point and has been pitching like an experienced major-leaguer instead of a 21-year-old. Boston's Daniel Bard could not find his release point and threw like he didn't know where the ball was going. That was the difference as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Boston Red Sox 5-1 on Sunday at Rogers Centre...
For two consecutive weekends, the Toronto Blue Jays find themselves slaves to a superior line-up. Last weekend it was the Texas Rangers and the super-human Josh Hamilton. This past Friday and Saturday, the resurgent Boston Red Sox have rolled into town and are showing why they rank second in the AL in batting average and RBIs.
All five losses, up to Saturdays 7-4 defeat, can...

TORONTO -- Daniel Nava hit a two-run single in the four-run second inning and left-hander Felix Doubront struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings Saturday as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 7-4 before 43,390 at Rogers Centre. Doubront (6-2) allowed seven hits -- including home runs by Jeff Mathis and Jose Bautista -- and one walk as he held the Blue Jays to three runs...
Before this year , it may have been a requirement to refer to Edwin Encarnacion as ‘enigmatic’ or similar. With 17 home runs already this year, the man who’s iron glove garnered him the nickname ‘E5′ is well on his way to a career year heading into free agency.
In truth the enigma label was a little unfair on Encarnacion. Since his first full year in 2006, he has put up...
