Jose BautistaToronto's Jose Bautista left Thursday's game against the Yankees after the fourth inning with an apparent right ankle injury.

Sliding into third on Edwin Encarnacion's double play ball, Bautista's lead foot could be seen sticking to the ground as he slid. He walked off the field under his own power but was replaced at third base by John McDonald for the top of the fifth.

Bautista had a hit and a walk in three plate appearances before leaving the game.

On the Blue Jays' broadcast, general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Bautista's injury was a "twisted right ankle."

Bautista is arguably the American League MVP so far this season, hitting .334/.468/.702 with 31 home runs and 65 RBI at the break.

 I can hear BoSox fans saying "what about Adrian Gonzalez? He has way more RBIs and a slightly better average"... How many RBIs do you think Bautista would rack up in that line-up? RBIs are a pretty stupid indication of a hitters worth IMO... Similar to W-L for a pitcher, these stats are greatly influenced by what team you happen to suit up for. Bautista is a beast.
