TORONTO -- Dayan Viciedo left Thursday's contest against the Blue Jays in the eighth inning with a left oblique strain.

The left fielder was forced to leave the contest after feeling some discomfort following a swing at a 1-0 offering from Blue Jays reliever Aaron Loup.

"As soon as he swings, he kind of went down on a knee, you know something is up," manager Robin Ventura said. "You know you weren't going to let him swing after that."

Viciedo will be re-evaluated in Chicago on Friday, but he doesn't believe the injury will require him to be placed on the disabled list.

"I don't think so," he said through interpreter Lino Diaz. "I don't think it's that bad."

Viciedo recorded one of Chicago's two hits off Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey in a 3-1 loss.
