Jose Bautista placed on disabled list

Jose Bautista has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his left wrist and the Toronto Blue Jays have called up outfielder Anthony Gose from Triple-A Las Vegas.

In a news release Tuesday, the Blue Jays did not give a timetable for Bautista's return. The All-Star slugger was scheduled for an MRI after leaving Monday night's loss to the New York Yankees when he injured his wrist on an eighth-inning swing.

The two-time defending AL home run champion was tied for second in the majors with 27 homers. He is batting .244 with 65 RBIs and a .360 on-base percentage.

The 21-year-old Gose played in the Futures Game for top prospects last week in Kansas City. He was hitting .292 with 10 triples at Las Vegas.
