OAKLAND -- Yoenis Cespedes left Friday night's game against the Blue Jays with a right wrist sprain.

Cespedes led off the sixth inning by beating out an infield single. Feeling his speed, he stole second base for his ninth swiped bag of the season. But he got a bit too aggressive, and was thrown out trying to steal third.

Cespedes did not seem to be in pain after he made the second out of the inning at third base, but he was replaced in the seventh inning by Michael Taylor.

The severity of the injury is not known at this point.
Cespedes has missed 32 games this season. He missed 22 games with a left hand strain from May 7-31. He also strained his left hamstring and sprained his left thumb this season. The A's are 45-28 with the Cuban-born slugger in the lineup, and 12-20 when he doesn't play.
We will provide updates on Cespedes as soon as they become available.
