Izturis recovering after fouling ball off foot

KANSAS CITY -- Maicer Izturis fouled a ball off his foot on Thursday in Detroit, and Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he doubted that Izturis would be available in any role for the opener of the Kansas City series on Friday.

Emilio Bonifacio started at second base.

"He [Izturis] is hobbling around pretty good today," Gibbons said. "Hopefully, he'll be all right in a couple of days."
