TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays are shutting down left-fielder Fred Lewis for the season so he can undergo bunion surgery on his left foot.

Lewis struggled with the bunion earlier this season and also underwent similar surgery on his right foot in September 2008.

He will have the surgery in Birmingham, Ala., though it's not clear when the operation will take place.

He has been mostly on the bench in recent weeks as Travis Snider has received the bulk of the playing time.

Lewis was acquired earlier this season from San Francisco for $75,000, and batted .262 with 31 doubles, eight homers, 70 runs scored and 36 RBIs in 110 games. He also stole 17 bases.

Bunions are bumps on the inside of the foot made up of bone and soft tissue caused when the big toe twists leading the bone to protrude.
