TORONTO -- Blue Jays third baseman Troy Glaus exited Thursday's game against the Tigers during the third inning. It marked the second time in six days that Glaus was pulled due to injury.
It wasn't clear why Glaus left the game, but it's likely related to the bone spur in his left foot that has been bothering the infielder all week. John McDonald replaced Glaus at third base in the top of the third. Glaus' status was not immediately available.

On Saturday, Glaus felt something in his heel as he ran out of the batter's box in the first inning against the Devil Rays. The 30-year-old third baseman remained in the game until Toronto manager John Gibbons pulled him in the fifth. Afterward, the Jays said Glaus had aggravated his Achilles' tendon in his left foot.

Glaus returned to the starting lineup on Monday, when Gibbons said the 6-foot-5 slugger was dealing with a bone spur in his left heel. Toronto's manager indicated that the injury wasn't serious, but he said the club would continue to monitor Glaus in each game.

"Every now and then it flares up," Gibbons said Monday. "Sometimes when you jam your foot on the bases, it just jars it a little bit. There's a lot of body on top of that heel."

Gibbons added that Glaus dealt with the problem every so often last season, too. Still, the third baseman was able to appear in 153 games and recorded 38 home runs and 104 RBIs. In 2005, Glaus hit 37 homers in 149 games with Arizona despite playing with a strained tendon behind his left knee.

Apr 12 Updating an earlier item, the Associated Press reports Toronto Blue Jays 3B Troy Glaus (heel) will not play Friday, April 13, according to Blue Jays manager John Gibbons. Glaus has been bothered the past few days by a sore left heel and will see a doctor about it.

This stinks but thankfully added Aaron Hill the other day to back up @ SS

I hope its not one of those day to day things either DL or come back to play (fantasy wise because of course you want the guy to do whats best for him)

if he goes DL plenty of guys on the wire to add after slotting him on a DL spot

Bone spurs? You can play through these, but they dont go away, they continue to grow. Running hard gets painful. Eventually they do need surgery and iirc, it's a couple of months minimum recovery. I'm guessing its a question of whether he'll play through it again for another season and have the surgery in off season. And yes it could be one of those day on - day off things.

Hard to guess what will happen but I think we need to check out the backups. I'll wait for if he actually goes on DL since I have plenty of hitting elsewhere.
