Anaheim, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Blue Jays placed outfielder Cole Gillespie on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with an abdominal strain.

Gillespie appeared in one game with the Blue Jays after being claimed off waivers from Seattle last week. He aggravated an injury suffered with the Mariners while hitting in the cage on Monday.

The Blue Jays recalled catcher Erik Kratz from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move. Kratz has batted .221 with three home runs and 10 RBI over 30 games with Toronto this season.
