Blue Jays place Lind on 15-day DL, recall Johnson
TORONTO – The Toronto Blue Jays placed first baseman Adam Lind on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot fracture Friday and recalled Dan Johnson from triple-A Buffalo.
Lind has been dealing with foot pain for weeks and aggravated the injury last Saturday at Baltimore. The injury originally was diagnosed as a bone bruise.
In 61 games this season, Lind has a .320 average with four homers and 27 RBIs.
Johnson had a .248 average with the Bisons and hit a league-leading 17 home runs this season. He has played in 416 major-league games over his career with Oakland, Tampa Bay, Baltimore and the Chicago White Sox.
The Blue Jays also designated right-hander Bobby Korecky for assignment.
