Rangers OF Rios leaves with sprained ankle

TORONTO (AP) Texas Rangers outfielder Alex Rios has left their game against the Blue Jays in the first inning after spraining his right ankle on a swing.

Rios was left hopping in pain on his left foot after fouling off the first pitch he saw from Blue Jays rookie right-hander Marcus Stroman on Saturday. After a brief conversation with manager Ron Washington and the trainer, Rios limped back to the dugout and headed for the clubhouse. X-rays were negative.

Daniel Robertson replaced Rios, who is batting .302 with four homers and 42 RBIs.

The injury-riddled Rangers currently have six players on the 15-day disabled list and eight more on the 60-day DL.
