TORONTO (AP) - Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Marco Scutaro will likely miss the rest of the season after an MRI on Monday revealed a tear in his right heel.
Scutaro left Sunday's game at Tampa Bay in the sixth inning after he felt something pop in his sore heel while charging a grounder.
Scutaro, 33, has been bothered by heel pain since late July. Monday's MRI revealed a tear in his plantar fascia, a band of thick tissue in the foot.
John McDonald started at shortstop against Baltimore on Monday night, with manager Cito Gaston saying Scutaro was unlikely to return for Toronto's final 13 games.
