Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Daulton Varsho and shortstop Bo Bichette both left Wednesday's 10-6 win over the San Francisco Giants early with injures. 

Varsho sustained his injury in the second inning while attempting to beat out a ground ball back to pitcher Logan Webb. The 28-year-old outfielder slid awkwardly head-first into the bag, walked gingerly after the play, and was removed in favour of Davis Schneider one inning later.

Bichette was lifted from the ballgame in the fourth inning after experiencing soreness in his right calf, the same calf that landed him on the 10-day injured list last month. He was replaced by Leo Jimenez.

Blue Jays manager John Schneider said after the game that Bichette was getting an MRI and Varsho was considered day-to-day. 

In his second season with the Blue Jays after coming over via trade from the Arizona Diamondbacks, Varsho is batting .196 with 11 homers and 37 RBI.

Bichette has a .222 average with four home runs and 30 RBI in what has become a down season for the young shortstop.
