NEW YORK — Toronto shortstop Troy Tulowitzki cracked his left shoulder blade in the opener of the Blue Jays’ doubleheader opener against the New York Yankees during a second-inning collision with centre fielder Kevin Pillar.

Toronto said Tulowitzki will be monitored for the next week for the Blue Jays to determine a timetable for his return. The Blue Jays said he will speak about the injury Sunday

Tulowitzki backpedaled into short centre to catch Didi Gregorius’ popup with two outs. After Tulowitzki caught the ball, he was hit from behind by Pillar.

Tulowitzki at first held the ball and transferred it to his right hand as he collided with Pillar, then seemed to be stunned and fell to the field as the ball rolled out of his hand. Tulowitzki was attended to by a trainer and walked off on his own Saturday, although with a limp.

After saying X-rays of his rib and chest were negative, the Blue Jays said he would have an MRI. During the nightcap, Toronto said he sustained a small crack to his scapula and upper back muscle bruising.
