Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo told reporters on Tuesday that Giles was seeking a second opinion on a strained right forearm. He was placed on the 10-day injured list and Montoyo said the pitcher would be “out for a while”.
The right-hander entered the ninth inning of the Toronto game at the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday in an attempt to secure a save, but the reliever gave up a brace with two outs and a pair of steps that loaded the goals. Giles then went to a 3-1 count on the next batter before he was put out. The Blue Jays ended up losing 6-5 in 10 innings.
