Bo Bichette left Monday night’s game with a right leg injury that may have significant ramifications for the Toronto Blue Jays. The injury comes less than 24 hours before Tuesday’s trade deadline.

In the third inning of Toronto’s game against first-place Baltimore, Bichette, the American League’s leader in hits (142) and batting average (.318), singled to right field. After stopping abruptly between first and second, Bichette keeled down in pain. Before making it back to first base, he was tagged for the game’s last out. Bichette left the game, the Blue Jays said, due to right knee soreness.

In the AL’s third and final wild-card berth, Toronto entered the night with a record of 59-47 and a 2 1/2-game advantage over the Boston Red Sox. As the teams kick off a four-game series at Rogers Centre, the Blue Jays are also 5 1/2 games behind the Orioles.

Jordan Hicks, a former closer for the St. Louis Cardinals, was acquired by the Blue Jays to take the place of Jordan Romano, who is out with a lower back injury, as an indication that they intended to make an investment in their team before the trade deadline. Naturally, Bichette’s injury comes at a bad moment if he must lose a lot of time as Toronto is suddenly forced to change course before Tuesday evening’s 6 p.m. ET trade deadline.

The Blue Jays might need to consider a replacement player on the trade market should the injury be serious.

This season, the infield trade market is a smolder, but there are a few interesting choices. The Cardinals’ Paul DeJong, who has experienced a revival with the struggling Cardinals this season, stands out as the most obvious example.

Tim Anderson of the White Sox is another possibility, despite his recent reversal of trend. However, the Blue Jays might consider Anderson as a (little) less expensive option if they believe a change of scenery would be beneficial for him.
