NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Toronto Blue Jays' bad luck with injuries continues.

Third baseman Brett Lawrie left this afternoon's game with the New York Yankees after he hurt himself going after a foul ball.

Lawrie was chasing a shallow Mark Teixeira popup in the bottom of the third inning. He tumbled over a railing while reaching for the ball and took a long fall into the television camera pit near the Toronto dugout and appeared to hit his right leg on a metal railing as he fell.

Lawrie was in obvious pain when he got up and was escorted to the clubhouse by manager John Farrell.

The injury comes just one day after slugger Jose Bautista was placed in the 15-day disabled list with an injured left wrist.
