Updated: September 13, 2013

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) – The Toronto Blue Jays activated outfielder
Colby Rasmus from the 15-day disabled list prior to Friday’s game against the
Baltimore Orioles.

Rasmus, who had been sidelined since Aug. 11 with a strained left oblique,
will start in center field and bat sixth when Toronto begins a three-game
series with the Orioles on Friday.

The 27-year-old was batting .273 with 18 home runs and 60 RBI prior to the
injury, which he sustained while checking his swing during an at-bat against
the Oakland Athletics last month.
