The Jays beat the Clevelands 10-8 tonight (YAY!), but Jose Bautista didn’t come out for the bottom half of the ninth, after beating out a double play ball, allowing Jose Reyes to score a key– though ultimately unnecessary– insurance run.
We’re awaiting word on what’s up. In the meantime, here’s what we know:
When Jose came back to the dugout at end of inning he looked out of breath but wasn’t favouring anything.

Didn’t see Bautista on the field shaking hands after the win. We’ll find out soon whether it’s injury related or a move by Gibbons #BlueJays

And now… a sigh of relief. Below the jump, we’ve got the update:
Twisted ankle for Jose. Minor injury. Precautionary exit. All per @wilnerness590 on the radio.

So… there you have it. It would be a shame if he wasn’t good to go for tomorrow’s Farrell Bowl, but obviously even a couple of games off would be fine compared to the visions we all must have just been having.
