Blue Jays place C Barrett on DL

TORONTO (TICKER) —The Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday placed catcher Michael Barrett on the 15-day disabled list.

Barrett, who suffered a muscle tear in his right shoulder in Friday’s game against Oakland, will be re-evaluated in two weeks. He is hitting .211 with one homer and two RBI in seven games this season.

To replace Barrett, the Blue Jays purchased the contract of catcher Raul Chavez from Class AAA Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League.
