Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo says first baseman Rowdy Tellez will likely go on the 10-day injured list after an MRI exam revealed a right knee strain.
Tellez was replaced for a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning of Tuesday’s 2-1 win over the visiting New York Yankees at Sahlen Field.
He hurt his knee while chasing a pop-up in foul territory in the top half of the frame.
Montoyo, speaking on an afternoon video call with reporters, says Vladimir Guerrero Jr., and Travis Shaw will likely handle first-base duties while Tellez is out of action.
Tellez is batting .283 this season with eight home runs, 23 RBIs and an .886 OPS.
