Upton out with left ankle sprain, should miss only 2-3 days at most



UPDATE, 10:47: Upton should miss only 2-3 days at most, he and manager Maddon say.

UPDATE, 7:34: News from the Rays isn't bad - they say Upton left with the game with a left ankle sprain and is day to day.

DEVELOPING: CF B.J. Upton left the game after going down in pain with what appeared to be a left ankle injury in first inning.

Upton walked off under his own power after being attended to by head athletic trainer Ron Porterfield.

It appeared from the way Upton reacted as Will Rhymes' liner bounced in front of him that his cleat caught in the turf.

Ben Zobrist went from second base to centerfield, and Reid Brignac came in to play second.
