Toronto third baseman Edwin Encarnacion sprained his left wrist on a swing during Saturday's win over the Tigers, and after the game was placed on the disabled list. Mike McCoy was recalled to take his roster spot.
Major-league home run leader Jose Bautista has played 35 games at third this season, but manager Cito Gaston said he didn't want to shift Bautista from right field to fill in for Encarnacion and that John McDonald will get most of the playing time.
Encarnacion is Toronto's nine-hole hitter and is batting .245 (though he'd been hitting better in August), so this injury doesn't have a big impact on the Jays' offense.
