Glaus hasn't played since April 12, when he left a game against Detroit after two innings because of a bone spur in his left heel. He's batting .333 with two home runs and five RBI in eight games this season.
Infielder Ryan Roberts was optioned to Triple-A Syracuse to make room on the roster.
Toronto also demoted right-hander Josh Towers to the bullpen and moved Victor Zambrano into the starting rotation.
Towers (1-3) gave up three home runs in the third inning of Friday night's 5-3 loss to the Rangers. Opponents are batting .290 against Towers in 23 innings this season.
Zambrano (0-1) has made six relief appearances for the Blue Jays this year, pitching 5 1-3 innings and posting a 5.06 ERA. The Venezuelan-born righty missed most of last season after undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career.
