ANAHEIM, Calif. — Toronto has placed Troy Tulowitzki on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. He joins star Josh Donaldson and other key Blue Jays on the shelf in a frustrating start to their season.
Tulowitzki’s hamstring is the latest in a string of injuries this season for Toronto, which already has placed third baseman Donaldson (calf), left-hander J.A. Happ (elbow) and right-hander Aaron Sanchez (finger) on the disabled list.
Toronto manager John Gibbons said the new 10-day DL was “definitely a factor” in the move.
“It’s a good rule change,” Gibbons said. “We can’t take any chances.”
Toronto called up RHP Leonel Campos from Triple-A Buffalo to help a depleted bullpen.
Ryan Goins replaced Tulowitzki at shortstop in Toronto’s lineup on Saturday night.
