TORONTO (AP)-Toronto Blue Jays catcher Sal Fasano left Tuesday night's game against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in the eighth inning because of a sore groin. He was replaced by Jason Phillips.
Fasano initially injured himself running the bases when he doubled and scored in the seventh, then aggravated his groin as he chased down a passed ball that allowed Carl Crawford to reach base in the eighth.
After the play, Fasano came to the mound to talk with right-hander Josh Towers and bent over in pain. Towers motioned to the dugout for the trainer, but Fasano waved him off.
Fasano remained in the game for three more batters before Phillips took over. Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Fasano will reevaluated Wednesday and is day-to-day.
Fasano is batting .179 with one home run and three RBIs in 14 games for Toronto this season.
