DUNEDIN, Fla. — Toronto shortstop Troy Tulowitzki left in the fourth inning of the Blue Jays' 3-1 win over the New York Mets on Wednesday after being hit on the right hand by a Bartolo Colon pitch.
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Tulowitzki was struck on the knuckles and will have X-rays. Gibbons said the Blue Jays think the injury is not major.
"It's swollen a little bit and he cut it up a little bit, too," Gibbons said.
Toronto slugger Jose Bautista was a late scratch due to neck stiffness, a move Gibbons said was precautionary.
Coming off a start Friday against Washington in which he allowed eight runs over five innings, Colon limited the Blue Jays to three hits — including two by Darrell Ceciliani — over six scoreless innings.
Toronto's Aaron Sanchez scattered four hits in 6 1-3 shutout innings. He has given up three earned runs in 19 2/3 innings and five appearances.
