Blue Jays activate RHP Morrow from DL

 

The Toronto Blue Jays activated right-hander Brandon Morrow and first baseman Dan Johnson from the disabled list.

The team also announced before Tuesday night’s game at Tampa Bay that infielder Brett Lawrie was transferred from the 15- to the 60-day disabled list.

Morrow had been sidelined because of an injured right finger since early May, while Johnson missed a month with a strained left hamstring. Lawrie went on the DL in early August with an oblique injury.

Second baseman Ryan Goins, outfielder Anthony Gose, right-hander Kendall Graveman and left-hander’s Sean Nolin and Daniel Norris were recalled from Triple-A Buffalo. Outfielders Dalton Pompey and George Kottaras had their contracts purchased from Buffalo.

Outfielder Darin Mastroianni and first baseman Matt Hague were designated for assignment. Right-hander Neil Wagner was released.
