TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays have reinstated right-hander Brandon Morrow from the disabled list and shut down injured infielder Brett Lawrie for the rest of the season.

Morrow has been sidelined since May with an injured right finger and just finished a rehab stint in the minors. In his brief time with the Jays early in the season, he was 1-2 with a 5.93 ERA.

Lawrie, who has been dealing with an oblique injury since early August, was transferred to the 60-day DL to clear roster space. He's batting .247 with 12 home runs and 38 RBIs in 70 games this season.

The moves were part of a larger roster shuffle by the Jays on Tuesday.

Second baseman Ryan Goins, outfielder Anthony Gose, right-hander Kendall Graveman and left-handers Sean Nolin and Daniel Norris were recalled from triple-A Buffalo while Canadian outfielders Dalton Pompey and George Kottaras had their contracts selected from Buffalo.

In other moves, outfielder Darin Mastroianni and first baseman Matt Hague were designated for assignment while right-hander Neil Wagner was released.
