Scary moment in Toronto, as Blue Jays superstar Jose Bautista was hit in the left ear area with a pitch and has been forced to leave the game early. The pitch came off the hand of the Orioles' Jake Arrieta in the bottom of the third inning Tuesday night.
The Blue Jays and Bautista received good news later Tuesday night, though, because there are no symptoms of a concussion. The slugger is thus eligible to play Wednesday night. He's officially listed as day to day (MLB.com).
Bautista, 30, leads the majors in home runs, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, OPS (obviously) and walks.
