NEW YORK (AP) -The Toronto Blue Jays recalled infielder Joe Inglett from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday before the opener of a four-game series against the New York Yankees.
Toronto claimed Inglett off waivers from the Cleveland Indians last Friday.
In other news, shortstop John McDonald was held out of the starting lineup for the third consecutive game because of a sore groin, the result of a hip flexor injury. Ray Olmedo started at shortstop again.
McDonald was to be examined by a doctor on Friday afternoon, manager John Gibbons said.
Gibbons also said backup catcher Sal Fasano left the team to be with his wife, who is expecting a baby.
