Not playing, but Vizquel ejected

TORONTO -- Omar Vizquel was ejected for arguing from the bench in Tuesday's 8-7 win against Texas in the top of the fifth inning by home-plate umpire Sam Holbrook while Blue Jay starter Drew Hutchison was pitching to David Murphy.

Blue Jays manager John Farrell came out to argue with Holbrook about the incident, but the shortstop was forced to leave the ballgame. Vizquel did not start the game and was sitting on the bench when the ejection occurred.

Vizquel, 45, was the first Blue Jays player to be ejected from a game this season.

The veteran has appeared in five games and is batting .091 in 11 at-bats.
