Blue Jays’ George Springer exits game vs. Rays

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer exited the game on Friday night against the Tampa Bay Rays with a left ankle sprain, the team announced.

Springer crashed hard into center field wall trying to make a play on Brandon Lowe’s triple. He stayed down for awhile before the Blue Jays trainer attended to him. Several players and staff, including manager Charlie Montoyo, went to the outfield to check on Springer, who elected to stay in the game.

Springer took his at-bat in the top of the third inning, which was a groundout to third base. After going out to the outfield briefly, he ran back into the dugout, exiting the game.

Springer, 32, is slashing .278/.338/.860 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs through 115 at bats. The Blue Jays are 17-15, currently third in the AL East.
