Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer left Tuesday’s game against the Chicago White Sox in the eighth inning with right elbow discomfort, the team announced.

After the game, manager Charlie Montoyo told reporters Springer has been battling the injury for some time and isn't likely to play as the Jays wrap up the series in Chicago Wednesday afternoon.

Cavan Biggio pinch hit for Springer, who was batting in the leadoff spot as the designated hitter. Springer finished the game 0-for-3 with three strikeouts.

The 32-year-old has appeared in 40 games this season for the Blue Jays and has a .260 batting average with 13 homers and 34 RBIs.

Toronto went on to lose the matchup 7-6 in 12 innings as infielder Josh Harrison brought home the winning run with a single into centre field.
