Justin Smoak was brought in to pinch-hit for Davis but Astros manager A.J. Hinch countered that by replacing reliever Collin McHugh with Ryan Pressley, who struck out Smoak.

"I don't have a specific update beyond that because it's probably still ongoing", said Atkins, adding that he would have an update on Wednesday. "I think we're in a good spot right now".

Roberto Osuna needed just six pitches in the ninth for his 20th save in 21 chances, completing a six-hitter.

Known formally as a Section 810 recognizance, the peace bond Osuna signed obliges him to continue counselling.

After the change and suspension, Osuna never played for the Jays again and was traded in August to the Houston Astros.

The peace bond - which is fairly common in the Canadian court legal system - requires that Osuna keep the peace for one year, including continuing counseling and staying away from the alleged victim, according to John Lott of The Athletic. Speaking through a translator, Osuna said he was untroubled by the negative reaction.

"Honestly, I'm probably going to head to the hotel, grab some Oakley goggles out of my bag, put them on, and as the Birdman song says 'start with straight shots and then pop bottles,"' said Bergman, referring to the rapper Birdman's 2007 hit song "Pop Bottles".

Josh James (2-0) allowed one run and four hits in five innings in his third big league start.

"It was probably the least efficient outing of his young career", Hinch said. Bregman has now reached base safely in 53 consecutive road games.

Bregman hit his 31st homer, a two-run drive in the first off Sam Gaviglio. Gaviglio was pulled before he could record an out, leaving Jose Fernandez and Danny Barnes to close out the inning, but not before Houston padded its lead on an Evan Gattis sacrifice fly. With Toronto's starting rotation dealing with injuries all season, Gaviglio has made a career-high 23 starts for the Blue Jays, winning twice. He admits to feeling the effect of the workload "a little bit" but said learning how to train his body and work through struggles has all been part of the learning experience this year, one in which he finished with a 3-9 record and a 5.19 ERA.
