Gurriel has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Gurriel suffered the injury during Monday's series opener and there simply isn't enough time left in the season for the rookie to return. The 24-year-old fared well in his first taste of the majors, slashing .281/.309/.446 with 11 homers and 35 RBI in 65 games. With Gurriel unavailable for the final week of the season, Aledmys Diaz will likely slide over to cover shortstop with Yangervis Solarte stepping into a starting role at the hot corner.
Gurriel was removed from Monday's game against the Astros with left hamstring tightness, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.
Gurriel was lifted from the game in the second inning after grounding into a double play. He'll be considered day-to-day moving forward and figures to undergo further evaluation following the ballgame.
Gurriel is out of the lineup for Sunday's contest against the Yankees.
Gurriel sits after starting 10 straight games, a stretch in which he hit a modest .244/.326/.390. Richard Urena gets the start at shortstop.

Gurriel was a bright spot at the top of the order for the Blue Jays on Thursday night, as he collected his third multi-hit effort of the month. The homer was his eighth of the season, and he now has 27 RBI to go along with a .284 batting average over 224 plate appearances in 2018.
Gurriel went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 6-1 victory over Miami.
Gurriel drove in a run during the third inning on a sacrifice fly to right field, and he'd score in the fifth on a Teoscar Hernandez three-run homer. Although Gurriel has played in just 46 games this season due to injury, he's batting .291 with seven home runs, 25 RBI and a .751 OPS.
