The Toronto Blue Jays injury list grew on Friday as the club placed first baseman/designated hitter Adam Lind on the 15-day disabled list with a right foot fracture.

After an examination by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Jays are reporting that Lind is expected to miss two to three weeks of action.  His foot will be placed in a walking boot for five to seven days. 

The left-handed hitter discovered the problem after his mother suggested he get a MRI after he continued to have pain in his foot. The fracture occurred when he hit a foul ball of his foot in a June 14th game against the Baltimore Orioles.

The club also called up first baseman Dan Johnson from Triple-A Buffalo to take Lind's place on the 40-man roster and designated right-handed pitcher Bobby Korecky for assignment.

Lind, 30, is hitting .320 with four home runs and 27 runs batted in so far this season in 61 games.

Johnson, 34, has hit a league leading 17 home runs this season in the minors.
