Toronto Blue Jays starter Kevin Gausman set off two innings for a doubleheader opening game with the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday after removing the line drive from his right ankle. The
team announced that Gausman was bruised and his X-rays were negative.
When catcher Gabriel Morena regained the ball and threw it to first base, play was out, but Gausman fell to the ground and continued to fall for a few minutes. He was able to walk outdoors.
Gausman, 31, did not allow a run on four hits. He hit 3, walked 1 and threw 42 pitches, lowering the season ERA to 2.86.
Right-handed Casey Lawrence took over and started three times.
