Snider Put on 15 Day-DL,Encarnacion Activated

Travis Snider was placed on the 15 day DL with a sore right wrist on Monday night.Snider missed the past two games because of the injury and was finally put on the disabled list today,making room for Edwin Encarnacion on the roster. Encarnacion's return means Jose Bautista will move to Left Field,with Fred Lewis moving to Right Field. Bautista was named the AL Player of The Week on Monday while he hit .444 with 5 HR's.Martin Prado was named the NL's Player of The Week as he led the MLB in RBI's with 11.

Some more news from the Blue Jays injury front came Sunday,as Jesse Litsch made his second minor league start tossing eight innings of five hit,three run baseball.Litsch can be activated from the 60 Day DL as early as June 3rd,and he will make his next start in AAA Las Vegas.

The Blue Jays lost the game on Monday night by a score of 8-3, dropping back to below .500 on home turf.Jose Bautista had another Home Run giving him 11 on the season and knocking him into a three way tie for 2nd in the AL with 31 RBI's.Dana Eveland proved that he will most likely be the pitcher sent down when Jesse Litsch is set to return to the rotation in a few weeks.Vernon Wells and Adam Lind combined to go 5-8 in the Blue Jays loss.

First pitch tomorrow at 12:37 Eastern
Shaun Marcum (2-1 ,2.78) for the Jays vs. Carl Pavano (4-3,3.30)going for the Twins
