The Toronto Blue Jays have placed infielder Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right index finger.

Lawrie was hit on the hand by Cincinnati pitcher Johnny Cueto in the second inning of Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Reds. He exited the game and x-rays later showed a fracture in the finger.

The 24-year-old has hit .244 with a career-high 12 home runs and 38 RBI in 69 games this season.

Also, the Blue Jays optioned catcher Erik Kratz to Triple-A Buffalo. Kratz has appeared in 30 games this season for Toronto, hitting .221 with three homers and 10 RBI.

In corresponding moves, the club has recalled outfielders Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar from Buffalo.

Gose is batting .233 with four RBI in 34 games with the Jays this season, while Pillar owns a .243 average in 24 contests.
