Rasmus beaned with warmup throw, leaves game

AP - Sports

BOSTON (AP) -- Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Colby Rasmus left Friday night's game against the Boston Red Sox after he was hit in the face with a ball while jogging out to the field in the middle of the first inning.

Rasmus was replaced by Kevin Pillar in the lineup.

Rasmus was heading to center field when a ball came from the direction of right fielder Anthony Gose and hit him in the face. A Blue Jays trainer went out to help Rasmus and then led him off the field.

Rasmus was activated from the disabled list last week after spending 29 games on it with a strained muscle in his left side.
