Blue Jays' George Springer leaves game vs. White Sox with elbow discomfort

Arash Madani and Arden Zwelling discuss the fallout for the Blue Jays after their tough extra innings loss to the White Sox, including on the spirit of the team and the bullpen and also give an update on George Springer's elbow injury.

Toronto Blue Jays star George Springer was removed from Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox with right elbow discomfort.

Springer, who was the DH in the game, was pinch-hit for by Cavan Biggio in the top of the eighth inning. Biggio then knocked a bloop RBI single to the outfield to tie the game 2-2.

As Biggio stepped up to the plate, Sportsnet's Arash Madani reported on the broadcast that Springer and head athletic trainer Jose Ministral were not in the dugout. Madani later showed footage of Springer holding his elbow with an uncomfortable expression on his face during the anthems before Monday's game in Chicago.

Springer went 0-3 with three strikeouts in the game. Earlier in the day it was revealed that he was third in American League outfield voting for the all-star game behind Aaron Judge and Mike Trout.

Manager Charlie Montoyo said post-game that it was unlikely that Springer would play when the teams close out their series Wednesday afternoon.

The Jays fell to the White Sox 7-6 in 12 innings.
