Blue Jays place Lind on 15-day DL with broken foot and recall Johnson

  • Print

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 was examined by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C., and will wear a walking boot for five to seven days, the team said in a statement. He's expected to be out for two to three weeks.

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.
