The revolving door that is the Toronto Blue Jays' third-base job continues to turn.

With All-Star Josh Donaldson still mending a nagging calf injury, the Blue Jays have been void of options at the hot corner.

So on the second game of a doubleheader Thursday against the St. Louis Cardinals, the club had to reach into the memory vault for another temporary solution, as Jose Bautista, who made an appearance as a pinch-hitter in the top of the seventh, was kept in the game at third base in the bottom of the frame, making it his first stint there since the 2013 season, according to Sportsnet's Shi Davidi.

Thanks to National League rules, the Blue Jays have had to get creative during the team's trip to St. Louis. On Tuesday, the team also gave traditional catcher Russell Martin his first start at the hot corner since 2013, while starter Marcus Stroman was also called upon to make a rare pinch-hit appearance in the same game.
