ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Toronto has placed Troy Tulowitzki on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring, joining star Josh Donaldson and other key Blue Jays on the shelf in a frustrating start to the season.

Tulowitzki removed himself from Friday night's 13-inning, 8-7 victory over the Los Angeles Angels in the eighth inning after taking third base on a wild pitch by Cam Bedrosian.

Tulowitzki's hamstring is the latest in a string of injuries this season for Toronto, which has already placed third baseman Donaldson (calf), left-hander J.A. Happ (elbow) and right-hander Aaron Sanchez (finger) on the DL.

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 Saturday night.
