Blue Jays' Bautista held out for 4th straight game
TORONTO -- Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista is out of the starting lineup for the fourth straight game because of a sore back.
Bautista was sit to set Thursday night when Toronto hosted the Chicago White Sox.
Leadoff man Rajai Davis will take Bautista's spot in right field.
Bautista felt sore after starting two games at third base in Kansas City last weekend. He's batting .200 with three homers and six RBIs this season.
Bautista missed three games earlier this month with a sore right ankle.
