Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) – The Toronto Blue Jays placed outfielder Melky
Cabrera on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee strain following
Thursday’s road loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Cabrera walked to leadoff the fourth, but was quickly wiped away when Jose
Bautista followed with a double-play groundout to shortstop.

Cabrera apparently injured his left knee on the play, forcing Rajai Davis to
take over in left field to start the home half of the fourth.

The 28-year-old outfielder entered Thursday’s contest batting .280 with three
home runs and 30 RBI in 87 games with the Jays.

To replace Cabrera on the roster, Toronto recalled pitcher Neil Wagner from
Triple-A Buffalo.

Wagner appeared in 20 games with the Jays earlier this season and pitched to a
2-3 record with a 3.26 earned run average.
