Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette is considered day-to-day after suffering a right knee injury, manager John Schneider said Tuesday

An MRI exam showed no structural damage in Bichette's knee, with the team officially describing it as inflammation. The team has yet to decide if Bichette will need a stay on the injured list

During the third inning of Monday night's loss to the visiting Baltimore Orioles, Bichette hit a single to right field and attempted to make it to second base. He pulled up abruptly as the throw came in and reached for his right knee before he was tagged for the final out of the inning. He limped as he walked off the field

Bichette, 25, leads the American League in batting average (.321), hits (144) and is tied for the lead in total games played (106). He has 17 home runs and 59 RBIs and was named an All-Star for the second time of his career
