Blue Jays place 3B Solarte on 10-day DL
The Toronto Blue Jays placed third baseman Yangervis Solarte on the 10-day disabled list on Sunday, one day after he departed a 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays with a right oblique injury.
Highly touted prospect Danny Jansen, a catcher, was called up from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move. Jansen is batting .275 with 12 home runs and 58 RBIs in 88 games with Buffalo.
Solarte was injured during a second-inning at-bat and left with a 2-2 count. He swung at and missed a pitch from Tampa Bay right-hander Ryne Stanek and fell to a knee.
