Toronto Blue Jays 1B Adam Lind (foot) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot fracture. Toronto recalled 1B Dan Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo and designated RP Bobby Korecky for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Johnson should be an AL-only asset, at least in a platoon role, and may earn fleeting deep mixed utility. Lind should be out for at least one month.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Dan Johnson will have his contract selected from Triple-A Buffalo before the Jays' game Friday, July 11, according to sources. The 34-year-old has clubbed 17 homers with a .248 batting average, .402 on-base percentage and .471 slugging percentage over 94 games.
Fantasy Tip: The rash of injuries to Toronto's offense, headlined by Edwin Encarnacion (quadriceps), prompted the call. Johnson is an AL-only asset and could sneak into some deep-mixed utility, but those players are better off first targeting Juan Francisco, who'll have more guaranteed playing time.

The Toronto Blue Jays are hoping 1B Adam Lind (back) can avoid a trip to the disabled list, but he hasn't looked much better two days after suffering a lower back injury, and he has been walking around gingerly. The team will wait at least another day before making a decision. 1Bs Dan Johnson or Juan Francisco would be promoted from Triple-A Buffalo if Lind is put on the shelf, and the designated hitter would turn into a platoon with the likes of C Dioner Navarro and OF Colby Rasmus.
Fantasy Tip: Both Johnson and Francisco are intriguing for AL-only managers for their power, but Francisco is younger and has more upside.
