BOSTON - The Blue Jays were relieved to learn that outfielder Colby Rasmus doesn't seem to have any serious injury problem after being struck on the left eye by a ball on Friday.

Rasmus had been trotting out to his position in centre field for the bottom of the first inning when right fielder Anthony Gose tossed him a ball from about 150 feet away so Rasmus could begin warming up with left fielder Rajai Davis. Rasmus did not see the ball coming, and it struck him in the eye. He was immediately removed from the field and taken to hospital for tests.

"Preliminary exams, it looks pretty good," manager John Gibbons said before Saturday's game.

"(Doctors) still want, in a few days when the swelling goes down, some further tests. But, as of right now, from the preliminary x-rays, they think it looks pretty good."
