Commuting in Toronto can be a bit of a headache which is why some people prefer to take their bikes to work. Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier was one of those people, but it came to an abrupt end when his bike was stolen from his garage during a team road trip.

Prior to the Jays' game against the Baltimore Orioles yesterday, Lindsay Dunn of City News Toronto asked Kiermaier if he was still biking to work.

"I got bad news," Kiermaier said. "My bike was stolen. My garage door was malfunctioning during a road trip and it was going up and down and a neighbour said that it was left open for maybe more than a day and it was really enticing to someone and they yanked it."

Back in April, the two had spoken about how Kiermaier preferred to take his bike to games at Rogers Centre when it was warm out.

Despite his loss, Kiermaier said he wasn't buying another bike. The 33-year-old outfielder is currently signed through this season, so perhaps he's waiting for an extension before investing in a new set of wheels.

The Jays are currently sitting in third place in the American League East division and hope to hold onto their playoff spot with two months left in the regular season.

The team also had a relatively quiet trade deadline, only acquiring Paul DeJong from the Cardinals who will serve as a competent backup to Bo Bichette who's currently dealing with a minor injury.
