The Rogers Centre has claimed two third basemen in one day.

In Game 1 of the ALDS between the Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays, Adrian Beltre was forced out of the game early with a back injury.

A few innings later, Blue Jays third baseman/AL MVP candidate Josh Donaldson took a knee to the head from Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor. Donaldson remained in the game, but was removed in the fifth inning for "precautionary reasons" when Ezequiel Carrera pinch-hit for him.

Needless to say, this is not a good development for either club considering how important each player is to his respective team.

This will be something to watch as the series progresses, for sure.
