TORONTO (AP)-The Toronto Blue Jays recalled infielder Ryan Roberts from Triple-A Syracuse on Saturday, one day after pitcher Roy Halladay was forced onto the 15-day disabled list by an appendectomy.
Halladay was released from a hospital Saturday, but is expected to miss four to six weeks.
``I already talked to him,'' manager John Gibbons said. ``He's doing good.''
Roberts was batting .253 with three home runs and 14 RBIs in 19 games at Syracuse. He appeared in two games for Toronto earlier this season, but did not collect a hit.
Infielder Troy Glaus, who left Friday's game after injuring his left heel while running out a fly ball in the first inning, was held out of the starting lineup Saturday. Jason Smith started at third base.
Glaus missed 14 games earlier this season because of heel soreness. He underwent a series of tests Saturday to determine the severity of the injury.
``I don't see him playing tomorrow,'' Gibbons said.
