Arencibia undergoes MRI on sore knee

SEATTLE -- Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia was a late scratch to Wednesday's lineup due to soreness in his right knee. Arencibia underwent an MRI and more will be known on Thursday.

The decision to remove Arencibia from the lineup came about 20 minutes before the game, when a lingering knee issue was aggravated as he warmed up starter J.A. Happ in the bullpen.

"It's stuff that we deal with the whole year," Arencibia said. "It was just there a little bit more than usual. I warmed up today through everything possible, just didn't feel like I could really go."

Josh Thole started in Arencibia's place and went 2-for-5 with a two-run double.
