TORONTO – Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Troy Tulowitzki limped off the field while being supported by trainers George Poulis and Mike Frostad after spraining his right ankle at first base in the third inning Friday night.

Charging up the line in an attempt to beat out a ground ball, Tulowitzki caught the back of Los Angeles Angels first baseman C.J. Cron’s foot as he landed on the bag and collapsed to the ground in pain.

He stayed down on the ground for a few minutes with the Blue Jays training staff before being helped off the field. Ryan Goins, who started at second base, moved over to short with Darwin Barney coming in at second base.
