Bautista leaves game in 8th with wrist injury

- Associated Press - Monday, July 16, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) - Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista left Monday night's game against the New York Yankees in the eighth inning because of a wrist injury.

Bautista immediately grabbed his left wrist and dropped into a crouch outside the batter's box after hitting a long foul ball against David Robertson. Several members of Toronto's staff attended to Bautista, who was tied for second in the majors with 27 homers.

After a few minutes, he walked off the field holding his wrist and Ben Francisco took over at bat with a 2-1 count. Francisco walked.

After the game, the Blue Jays said Bautista did not break a bone. But he has a tendon injury and will have an MRI on Tuesday to determine how severe it is.

Bautista was 0 for 2 with a walk and a run scored. The Blue Jays lost 6-3.
