TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays placed first baseman Adam Lind on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a broken right foot and recalled Dan Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo.

Lind has been dealing with foot pain for weeks and aggravated the injury last Saturday at Baltimore. The injury originally was diagnosed as a bone bruise.

The Blue Jays announced before Friday night's game against Tampa Bay that Lind will be in a walking boot for five to seven days and could return in two to three weeks.

In 61 games this season, Lind has a .320 average with four homers and 27 RBIs.

Johnson had a .248 average with the Bisons and hit a league-leading 17 home runs this season. He has played in 416 major-league games over his career with Oakland, Tampa Bay, Baltimore and the Chicago White Sox.

The Blue Jays also designated right-hander Bobby Korecky for assignment.
