Jays' Cecil tears left calf muscle, could be done for year

TORONTO (AP) Toronto Blue Jays reliever Brett Cecil tore his left calf muscle during Friday's AL Division Series game and might be done for the postseason.

Cecil, Toronto's top left-hander in the bullpen, was injured while tagging Mike Napoli in a rundown that ended the eighth inning of a 6-4 loss to the Texas Rangers. He had to be helped off the field.

Toronto manager John Gibbons said Cecil has a ''pretty significant tear in his calf, so that's not very good.''

Gibbons said left-hander Aaron Loup will have to step up.

Toronto is down 0-2 in in the best-of-five ALDS.
