Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista was out of the lineup Saturday for the second straight day because of a sore right ankle.
He was injured during Thursday's game against the Cleveland Indians while trying to beat out a grounder in the eighth inning.
"He still didn't feel quite right this morning," manager John Gibbons told after taking a few swings in the batting cage before Saturday's game against the visiting Boston Red Sox. "It's a long season. No point putting him in a situation to re-aggravate it."
The ankle is not swelling and Bautista described the ankle as simply sore.
Also, the team announced that it promoted right-hander David Bush from Class AAA Buffalo and designated righty Jeremy Jeffress for assignment.
Bush, 33, played for the Blue Jays from 2002-05. He has a career 56-69 record with a 4.70 ERA in 210 games (187 starts). He also played for the Milwaukee Brewers.
