Blue Jays left fielder Steve Pearce left Friday night's 5-4 loss to the Tigers after the first inning with stiffness in his lower back. Pearce struck out looking in the bottom of the first inning and then did not return to the field. Rookie Teoscar Hernandez replaced Pearce in left field and took over the top spot in the lineup.
