Troy Tulowitzki was injured in the first game of the doubleheader against the New York Yankees on Saturday afternoon.
The Toronto Blue Jays shortstop cracked his left shoulder blade in a collision with centre fielder Kevin Pillar while both were trying to catch a fly ball in the second inning.
He is now on the disabled list and listed as day to day.
The 30-year-old was acquired from the Colorado Rockies earlier this season and has had a number of injuries throughout his career that have held him to an average of just 88 games over the past three seasons.
Tulowitzki has batted .279 with 17 homers and 70 RBI over 125 games with the Rockies and Blue Jays this season.
The Jays swept the doubleheader in the Bronx against the Yankees with a 9-5 victory in the first game and 10-7 win in game two.
Toronto looks for the series sweep when they face New York at 1:05 p.m. today.
R.A. Dickey takes his 10-10 record to the mound for the Jays.
The Blue Jays lead the American League East by four-and-a-half games over the Yankees.
Tulo will be monitored closely over the next week to help determine a possible timeline for return.
