Blue Jays reliever Tim Mayza leaves game after dislocating right shoulder

Watch as Toronto Blue Jays lefty Tim Mayza gets into a collision with Minnesota Twins' Nick Gordon at home plate after attempting to field a bunt by Sandy Leon, resulting in a dislocated right shoulder.

Toronto Blue Jays left-handed pitcher Tim Mayza exited Saturday's game against the Minnesota Twins in the sixth inning after dislocating his right shoulder during a play near home plate.

Mayza was attempting to grab a bunted ball during a safety squeeze play and collided with Twins base runner Nick Gordon.

After lying on the ground in pain, Mayza continued to clutch his right shoulder as he was helped up and assisted off of the field.

The 30-year-old Mayza, who took over for starter Mitch White in the fifth, gave up two runs, both earned, on three hits over two-thirds of an inning.

Right-handed pitcher Anthony Bass came in to replace Mayza with the Blue Jays trailing 5-2.

Minnesota went on to win 7-3.
