 SEATTLE (AP) -A.J. Burnett is on the disabled list. Again.
The Toronto Blue Jays sent the right-hander back to the 15-day disabled list on Sunday with a right shoulder strain, three days after he was activated and briefly returned to the rotation.
Burnett allowed five runs and six hits in four-plus innings Thursday at Minnesota, his first appearances since leaving a June 12 start in San Francisco with a shoulder strain.
``He's going to get checked out. We don't know anything until he sees the doctor,'' manager John Gibbons said following a 2-1 loss to Seattle Sunday. ``We'll let you know.''
Burnett is on the DL for the 10th time since 2000.
Toronto recalled Jesse Litsch from Triple-A Syracuse. A 22-year-old right-hander selected in the 24th round of the 2004 draft, Litsch is to start Tuesday at Oakland.
It will be Litsch's fifth start this season for the Blue Jays. He is 1-2 with a 6.62 ERA.
