Kris Medlen struck by line drive
Medlen was struck on the back of the leg, just below his knee, on a hard-hit ball by Emilio Bonifacio in the second inning Wednesday. He flexed the leg before deciding to stay in the game, but walked Munenori Kawasaki and surrendered a two-run single to Melky Cabrera that gave the Blue Jays a 3-0 lead.
Medlen finished out the inning but was replaced by David Carpenter in the third, having allowed four hits and three earned runs.
The team says Medlen sustained an upper calf contusion and should be OK for his next start.
