Bautista done for the season with hip injury
Bautista has been on the disabled list since Aug. 21 and Toronto manager John Gibbons said the slugging outfielder will not play the rest of the season to give him more time to heal.
Though Bautista had been improving, a hip specialist recommended he rest two more weeks, leaving just one week left in the season.
Bautista played 118 games this season, hitting .259 with 28 homers and 73 RBIs.
He also had his 2012 season cut short due to wrist surgery.
