The Blue Jays have placed starter Francisco Liriano on the 10-day disabled list with left shoulder inflammation and recalled pitcher Leonel Campos from Triple-A Buffalo, Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reports.

Liriano struggled in his last two starts, allowing 10 runs in a total of 5 2/3 innings. As Davidi notes, the lefty has also seen a decline in his fastball velocity, creating cause for concern.

The list of injured Jays grows ever longer. Liriano joins fellow starters¬†J.A. Happ and Aaron Sanchez on the DL along with Josh Donaldson, Russell Martin, and Troy Tulowitzki. Sanchez is expected to return on Sunday. Mike Bolsinger will take Liriano’s spot in the rotation temporarily.
