Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot fracture. Toronto recalled 1B Dan Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo and designated RP Bobby Korecky for assignment.

Blue Jays | Promoting Dan Johnson

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 07:29:09 -0700

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Dan Johnson will have his contract selected from Triple-A Buffalo before the Jays' game Friday, July 11, according to sources. The 34-year-old has clubbed 17 homers with a .248 batting average, .402 on-base percentage and .471 slugging percentage over 94 games.

Fantasy Tip: The rash of injuries to Toronto's offense, headlined by Edwin Encarnacion (quadriceps), prompted the call. Johnson is an AL-only asset and could sneak into some deep-mixed utility, but those players are better off first targeting Juan Francisco, who'll have more guaranteed playing time.

Blue Jays | Adam Lind hoping to avoid DL

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 12:36:57 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are hoping 1B Adam Lind (back) can avoid a trip to the disabled list, but he hasn't looked much better two days after suffering a lower back injury, and he has been walking around gingerly. The team will wait at least another day before making a decision. 1Bs Dan Johnson or Juan Francisco would be promoted from Triple-A Buffalo if Lind is put on the shelf, and the designated hitter would turn into a platoon with the likes of C Dioner Navarro and OF Colby Rasmus.

Fantasy Tip: Both Johnson and Francisco are intriguing for AL-only managers for their power, but Francisco is younger and has more upside.
