Blue Jays slugger Encarnacion to have MRI on injured quad
JUL 06, 2014 9:09a ET
Encarnacion was hurt beating out a possible double play ball, allowing Jose Reyes to score and putting the Blue Jays ahead. Encarnacion stepped on the first base bag, limped for a few steps and then tumbled to the ground.
"I wouldn't guess it'd be a quick thing," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "He'll get an MRI tomorrow or the next day and we'll have a little better idea. He said he felt something pop in his quad. That's all I know right now."
Encarnacion is tied for the major-league lead with 70 RBI and is second with 26 homers.
