Davis exits with blister on index finger
ATLANTA -- Blue Jays left fielder Rajai Davis was replaced by Mike McCoy in the fifth inning because of a blister on his left index finger. He is considered to be day to day.

Manager John Farrell said the blister developed as a result of treatment Davis was getting for a jammed left middle finger. Davis suffered that injury Wednesday sliding and missed Thursday's game against the White Sox because of it.

Just before coming out of Saturday's 5-2 loss against the Braves, Davis swung wildly at a curveball in the dirt to strike out in the top of the fifth. The bat flew out of his hands, which prompted Farrell to make the move.

"The blister that's there creates a lot of discomfort for him," Farrell said. "When he swung the bat, the bat came out of his hand and we had to get him out of the game."

Davis is hitting .250 with four home runs, 13 RBIs and 14 stolen bases.

McCoy made his third appearance of the season. He has twice been an injury replacement for Davis.
