TORONTO -- A delay in the arrival of new Toronto Blue Jays second baseman Kelly Johnson forced the club into a roster move Wednesday.
Johnson had to return to Arizona to get his passport and won't be available until Thursday's series finale with the Kansas City Royals at Rogers Centre. As a result, Toronto recalled outfielder Darin Mastroianni from triple-A Las Vegas.
The 29-year-old Johnson batted .209 with 18 home runs, 49 RBIs and 13 stolen bases in 114 games this season with the Diamondbacks.
Mastroianni has posted a .273 average with 25 extra base hits and 14 stolen bases in 68 games with Las Vegas.
The 25-year-old led all Blue Jays minor leaguers last season with 104 runs scored, 158 hits and 46 stolen bases.
