Blue Jays relief pitcher Brett Cecil sustained a “pretty significant tear” in his left calf during Friday’s 6–4 loss to the Rangers in Game 2 of the ALDS.
“It’s not good,” Gibbons added.
Cecil, a lefthander, limped off the field in the eighth inning after picking off Mike Napoli at first base and tagging him out during a rundown. Moments earlier, Napoli singled off Cecil to tie the game at 4–4.
The Blue Jays trail the Rangers 2–0 in the best-of-five series, which moves to Texas for Game 3 on Sunday night.
