Toronto's Brett Lawrie to 15-day DL
The move was announced Wednesday, a day after he was injured while sliding into second base in Toronto's 9-3 win over Atlanta.
Lawrie stayed in the game after the play but was visibly hobbled while advancing to third base later in the inning and had to be replaced by a pinch-runner.
Lawrie is batting .209 with five home runs and 14 RBIs.
The team also recalled right-hander Todd Redmond, selected the contracts of right-hander Neil Wagner and left-hander Juan Perez from the Bisons and designated first baseman Clint Robinson for assignment.
