TORONTO (AP) -Blue Jays third baseman Troy Glaus missed his second straight game Tuesday because of a sore left ankle, the latest lower leg problem for the veteran slugger.
Blue Jays general manager J.P. Ricciardi said Glaus was away from the team seeking medical attention.
``The doctors are looking at his ankle and we'll have a better idea of what can be done and what can't be done,'' Ricciardi said. ``It might be a surgery in the offseason, just to clean it out.''
Glaus was a late scratch Monday at Kansas City and was replaced by Hector Luna, who started at third base again Tuesday as Toronto returned home to face the Los Angeles Angels. Luna and Ray Olmedo will split time at third until Glaus returns, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said.
Glaus, batting .253 with 15 home runs and 49 RBIs in 91 games this season, missed 14 games in April due to a sore left heel. He has been playing with heel and hamstring pain all year.
Glaus, 31, snapped a career-high 0-for-27 slump with two hits Saturday and went 2-for-4 again Sunday. He has hit 272 home runs in his 10-year career and was the MVP of the 2002 World Series.
