 TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Blue Jays placed outfielder Reed Johnson on the 15-day disabled list Friday because of soreness in his back, and recalled outfielder Adam Lind from Triple-A Syracuse.
Toronto's leadoff man, Johnson has appeared in seven games this season, batting .265 with one home run and seven RBIs. He sat out Toronto's 5-4 loss to Detroit on Thursday night. The move was retroactive to Thursday.
Johnson underwent an MRI on Friday, but the team was still waiting for the results.
``We're still evaluating it right now,'' general manager J.P. Ricciardi said. ``We'll know more through the weekend. He's got some discomfort in his back, but we haven't been able to pinpoint it.''
The 30-year-old Johnson, who missed two weeks during spring training with the same injury, set career highs in batting average (.319) and on-base percentage (.390) in 2006. Lind, 23, hit .367 with two home runs and eight RBI in 18 games after being called up last September. He'll take over as the everyday left-fielder.
The Blue Jays are also waiting to see whether third baseman Troy Glaus can make a quick recovery from a sore left heel and a tweak in his left hamstring. Glaus left Thursday's game after just two innings and was held out of the lineup Friday.
``We're going to have to make a judgment in the next couple of days,'' manager John Gibbons said before Friday night's game against Detroit.
