The Toronto Blue Jays have placed right fielder Jose Bautista on the fifteen-day disabled list after the slugger aggravated a wrist injury Saturday that had him on shelf since the middle of July, reports Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com:

Jose Bautista's return to the Blue Jays' lineup barely lasted 24 hours before he was placed back onto the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his left wrist.

Bautista re-aggravated his wrist injury during a first inning at-bat against Baltimore on Saturday night. It's the same ailment that just cost him more than a month and this time around it will equate to at least 15 days and possibly the rest of the season.

The Blue Jays also placed first baseman David Cooper on the fifteen-day disabled list with a mid-back injury. To replace Cooper and Bautista on their roster, the Blue Jays recalled shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria from Triple-A and activated first baseman Adam Lind from the disabled list.

Chisholm notes that the aggravated injury could sideline Bautista for the remainder of the season. If so, he would finish with a line of .241/.358/.527 with fourteen doubles and twenty-seven home runs.
