St. Petersburg, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Blue Jays placed first baseman/designated hitter Adam Lind on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot fracture.

The injury was originally sustained when Lind fouled a ball off his foot during a series in Baltimore on June 14. He was initially diagnosed with a bone bruise and attempted to play through the pain before eventually undergoing an MRI.

Lind is hitting .320 with four home runs and 27 RBI in 61 games this season.

Also Friday, the Blue Jays recalled first baseman Dan Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo and designated pitcher Bobby Korecky for assignment.

Johnson has spent all of 2014 with the Bisons, hitting .248 with a league leading 17 home runs and 54 RBI.
