OAKLAND - The Blue Jays were beaten yet again by the Oakland Athletics Saturday but that might not be the most significant loss they suffered on the night.

In addition to a 5-1 defeat at the hands of the A’s, the Jays may have lost first baseman Edwin Encarnacion who had to be helped from the field in the first inning after beating out the back end of a potential double play.

The injury was described by the training staff as “quadriceps soreness” but further examination will be required to determine just how serious it is and how much time the slugger will miss.
