He stayed in the game and retired the next two Blue Jays. But he didn't come out for the second. His injury is listed as a "left triceps contusion."

His official line was one inning pitched, two hits, no runs and one strikeout. He threw 24 pitches, 14 for strikes.

It was the shortest outing of Matusz's big-league career. He lasted just 1 2/3 in his last start against the Blue Jays on July 18.
