"Just a little cramp. If i would've ran it out, I probably would've strained it, but I think I did the right thing," Bautista said after the game. "I'll be ready to go tomorrow."
Bautista tweeted from his Twitter account shortly after the game that he was dealing with a leg cramp, and he reiterated that to reporters.
He was the second Blue Jay to leave the game. Devon Travis exited after the second inning with what the club called left shoulder irritation.
• Travis exits with shoulder irritation
After Bautsita missed time earlier this year with a right shoulder injury, the team was no doubt relieved that its star player wasn't seriously hurt on the play.
Bautista is hitting .231 with 21 homers and 66 RBIs in 94 games.
