Blue Jays place Rasmus on DL
The Blue Jays are down a man in the outfield, as Colby Rasmus is on the disabled list because of an oblique strain.
Ramus in 2013 is enjoying one of his best seasons, as he's batting .273/.335/.478 (119 OPS+) with 18 home runs in 112 games. Per Ultimate Zone Rating, Rasmus is also having one of his best defensive campaigns.
To replace Rasmus on the active roster, the Jays have called up 24-year-old outfielder Kevin Pillar.
