He was placed on the seven-day disabled list the following day and travelled to Toronto's spring training facility in Florida on Friday for tests.

A third baseman, Guerrero Jr. has 11 home runs and 55 RBIs in 53 games this season. He also has 18 doubles and 20 walks.

Guerrero signed with Toronto in July 2015 and made his minor league debut the following year. At two levels of Class-A last season, he hit .323 with 13 home runs and 76 RBIs in 119 games.

Perhaps the Blue Jays’ win streak was doomed from the start.Tropicana Field, home of the Tampa Bay Rays, hasn’t been kind to the Jays over the years, a trend that continued Monday night with an 8-4 loss to the home team.The Jays came into the three-game series on the heels of four straight victories over the Baltimore Orioles, and seven consecutive quality starts from the rotation. Both streaks ended when Sam Gaviglio was knocked around for the first time since joining the club exactly a month ago, giving up five runs on seven hits through 31/3 innings.
