Khris Davis leaves game early with right groin strain

TORONTO — It wasn’t a starting pitcher this time, but the A’s had to remove a player early due to injury for the third game in the past four days.
Slugger Khris Davis appeared to pull something as he fouled off the first pitch he saw from Joe Biagini on a check swing with a runner on first and no outs in the fourth inning of Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays.

Davis grounded into a 6-4-3 double play on the very next pitch and was only able to lightly jog down to first base before walking back down into the clubhouse. Matt Joyce later pinch hit for Davis in the fifth, as it was announced the slugger left the game with a right groin strain.
