Rangers two-time All-Star Alex Rios is out until Tuesday at the earliest, manager Ron Washington said Sunday in a report from Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News.

The report comes a day after he left in the first inning of Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Blue Jays because of a sprained right ankle he suffered during a swing. X-rays done on Rios were negative.

Washington said the hope is he returns Tuesday for the Rangers' second of four games in New York vs. the Yankees

“I don’t think tomorrow, but Tuesday could be an option. The ankle is a lot better, a lot better. We’ll use today to get some more swelling out of it and tomorrow for treatment and hope he’s ready to go on Tuesday.”

On the season, the 33-year-old is batting .302 with four homers and 42 RBI. The Rangers were fifth in the AL West heading into Sunday's series finale in Toronto.
