The Toronto Blue Jays have placed infielder Brett Lawrie on the disabled list with a strained left oblique, the team announced Thursday.
Lawrie, 24, is in his fourth major league season. He's batting .247 with a .426 slugging percentage in 70 games this year.
With Edwin Encarnacion out with a quad injury, both of Toronto's primary corner infielders are currently injured.
The Blue Jays currently sit four games behind the Orioles in the American League East and are a half game ahead of the Royals in the race for the second wild card.
