Orioles shortstop Freddy Galvis was forced to leave Saturday's contest against the Blue Jays after suffering an apparent leg injury.

Galvis turned up limping after hitting a bunt single in the second inning and was immediately removed from the game with the Orioles reportedly diagnosing him with a "right quadriceps discomfort."

The 31-year-old veteran joined the Orioles on a one-year deal this offseason and has been a consistent fixture in manager Brandon Hyde's infield. 

On Friday, Galvis helped the Orioles (24-52) to a 6-5 comeback victory over the Blue Jays (38-36), snapping a 20-game road losing streak.

Galvis is batting .249/.306/.414 for the Orioles as of Saturday.
