Potential danger was avoided tonight in Toronto.

Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow left the field in the seventh inning of Wednesday’s game against the Orioles after taking a line drive off his right leg.

He hobbled around before getting carried to the dugout while putting no weight on his right foot.

The good news is X-rays have ruled out a break. And according to FOX Sports’ Jon Paul Morosi, Morrow has merely been diagnosed with a shin contusion. Toronto’s trainers are calling him day-to-day.

Morrow had thrown 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball against Baltimore, lowering his ERA to a cool 3.28. He also struck out eight Orioles hitters. The talented 27-year-old should be fine to make his next scheduled start.
