Donaldson, Tulowitzki out with injuries for Blue Jays

CLEVELAND (AP) Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki are out of Friday night's lineup for the series opener against Cleveland because of injuries.

Donaldson has a jammed right thumb and Tulowitzki has a sore calf. They were injured Wednesday in a game at Yankee Stadium and the AL East leaders were off Thursday.

Manager John Gibbons expects both to be available Saturday.

Darwin Barney is starting at third base and Ryan Goins, recalled from Triple-A Buffalo, is playing short. Outfielder Darrell Ceciliani was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo.
