Rangers right fielder Alex Rios left Texas' 4-1 loss in Toronto on Saturday after he rolled his ankle during his first-inning at-bat, and the team is listing him as day-to-day with a sprained ankle after X-rays were negative.

Rios fouled the first pitch back and grimaced as the ball went out of play. Manager Ron Washington and a trainer came out to check on Rios, who was subsequently pulled and replaced with Daniel Robertson.

The 33-year-old Rios, an 11-year veteran of the Blue Jays, White Sox and Rangers, is hitting .302/.330/.435 in 95 games this season with four homers, 42 RBIs, 16 stolen bases and a league-leading eight triples.
