Blue Jays place INF Nix on DL with bruised shin
The Toronto Blue Jays have placed infielder Jayson Nix on the
disabled list with a bruised left shin and called up infielder Mike
McCoy from Triple-A Las Vegas.
McCoy started at second base in Saturday’s game against the
Tampa Bay Rays.
Nix started at second in Friday’s 6-4, 11-inning win over the
Rays but came out of the game in the second inning after Sean
Rodriguez slid into him breaking up a double play. Nix was already
nursing a sore knee before the injury to his shin.
In 17 games, Nix is batting .244 with two homers and five RBIs,
while McCoy is batting .364 with no RBIs in seven games.
Third baseman Edwin Encarnacion was a late scratch from
Saturday’s starting lineup because of a sore left wrist.
