 TORONTO (AP)-The Toronto Blue Jays placed first baseman Lyle Overbay on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a broken right hand.
Overbay was injured Sunday when he was hit by a pitch from Chicago White Sox left-hander John Danks. He had surgery Monday and is expected to miss four to six weeks. It's the first trip to the DL of his seven-year career.
Overbay was batting .256 with eight home runs and 27 RBI in 55 games. Matt Stairs is expected to get the bulk of the playing time at first base in Overbay's absence.
The Blue Jays recalled Curtis Thigpen from Triple-A Syracuse to replace Overbay. To make room on the 40-man roster for him, the Blue Jays transferred pitcher John Thomson to the 60-day DL.
Thigpen was batting .299 with three home runs and 16 RBIs in 44 games at Syracuse.
A second-round pick in the 2004 draft, Thigpen caught and played first base at triple-A. He also played three games at second base.
Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he planned to give the right-handed hitting Thigpen the start at first base on Wednesday night against Tampa Bay left-hander Scott Kazmir.
