TORONTO – The Toronto Blue Jays put third baseman Josh Donaldson on the 10-day disabled list Friday with a sore right calf.
Donaldson left Thursday’s loss to Baltimore in the sixth inning after hobbling into second base with an RBI double, the lone run in a 2-1 defeat.
“It’s very aggravating, very frustrating,” Donaldson said. “The important part is just making sure that whenever I do come back, it’s ready, and just go from there.”
Toronto selected Chris Coghlan from Triple-A Buffalo and designated catcher Juan Graterol for assignment.
Donaldson said Thursday’s mishap felt worse than the one that forced him to leave Sunday’s loss at Tampa Bay.
INDIANS: Second baseman Jason Kipnis has enlisted the help of social media to help him find a discontinued piece of protective gear.
Kipnis, in an Instagram post Thursday, said he lost his favorite white Easton shin guard. He said he’s worn the model since college but can’t replace it because Easton discontinued.
• Forced to use infielder Michael Martinez as a pitcher in Thursday’s loss to the Chicago White Sox, Cleveland recalled right-hander Nick Goody from Triple-A Columbus.
CUBS: Chicago activated left-handed pitcher Brian Duensing off of the 10-day disabled list and placed right-hander Carl Edwards Jr. on the bereavement list.
Duensing, 34, experienced lower back tightness during spring training and made two rehab outings for Triple-A Iowa, throwing three scoreless innings.
PADRES: San Diego reinstated catcher Hector Sanchez from the seven-day concussion disabled list and recalled right-hander Kevin Quackenbush from Triple-A El Paso.
Sanchez, who is expected to share time with Austin Hedges and Luis Torrens, and Quackenbush joined the team for the game at Atlanta. Sanchez started and left a game at the Dodgers on April 6 after taking a foul ball off his face mask.
