TORONTO — I’m not at the ballpark today, but I just received word that both shorstops David Eckstein (strained right hip flexor) and John McDonald (sprained right ankle) have been placed on the 15-day disabled list. Neither infielder is seriously injured, but the Jays can keep running out two men short until they’re completely recovered.
For the time being, the Jays have recalled Mighty Joe Inglett from Triple-A Syracuse. I’m told a subsequent move will be coming on Friday. There’s been rumblings that the Jays have been scouring the market for a right-handed bat. Robinzon Diaz would’ve been an option, but he’s out 2-3 weeks with an ankle injury all his own.
I’ll catch you all from Cleveland tomorrow.
