Mariners center fielder Julio Rodriguez leaves game versus Blue Jays after 1st inning

SEATTLE (AP) - Seattle Mariners center fielder Julio Rodriguez was removed from Saturday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the first inning.

No reason was given for Rodriguez leaving the game, although the 23-year-old had been having a rough time in recent days.

Rodriguez fouled a pitch off his left knee during Friday's win over Toronto. He appeared to be moving cautiously in center field during the top of the first inning and was replaced in the lineup when the Mariners took the field for the second.

Rodriguez also jammed his right thumb in Thursday's win over Baltimore while bracing himself as he tumbled making a catch.

Rodriguez has been in a slump at the plate and is hitting .247 with eight homers and 30 RBIs on the season.
