The Blue Jays placed outfielder Jose Bautista on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left knee and recalled outfielder Junior Lake from Triple-A Buffalo, the club announced on Wednesday evening.

Bautista suffered the injury tripping while fielding a ball during Tuesday’s game. He’s back on the DL batting .222/.349/.444 with 15 home runs and 48 RBI in 355 plate appearances.

Lake is batting .206 in 34 major league at-bats this season. At Triple-A, he’s compiled a .238/.323/.371 triple-slash line in 291 PA.
