Jays lose 3B, luck out on Bautista

TORONTO — The Blue Jays put 3B Brett Lawrie on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right index finger. He's expected to miss three to six weeks.

Blue Jays RF Jose Bautista was out of the starting lineup Monday night because of a mild strain to his left hamstring. He said he expects to avoid the DL.

The Blue Jays optioned C Erik Kratz to Triple-A Buffalo and recalled OFs Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar from Triple-A.

Lawrie left Sunday's game in Cincinnati after being hit by a pitch from RHP Johnny Cueto. Bautista also left Sunday's game and had an MRI exam on Monday.

Bautista said there's a chance he could pinch-hit in the series against New York.

"We lucked out there," Toronto manager John Gibbons said. "Hopefully it's just a couple of days."

HOME RUN DERBY: Toronto's Bautista and Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki will be the captains for the All-Star event on July 14.

ASTROS: SS Carlos Correa, one of baseball's top prospects, is expected to miss significant time with a right ankle injury sustained Saturday, GM Jeff Luhnow told the Houston Chronicle.

CARDINALS: LHP Marco Gonzales, a first-round pick last year, was called up from Triple-A Memphis and is set to make his major-league debut Wednesday.

NATIONALS: OF Bryce Harper, out since April 27 with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb, went 1-for-1 with a walk to begin a rehab assignment at Class A Potomac. He's expected to return to the majors in early July.

PADRES: Ace RHP Andrew Cashner went on the 15-day disabled list soreness in his pitching shoulder.

REDS: 2B Brandon Phillips was out of the lineup because of a bruised right heel and is considered day to day.

ROCKIES: C Michael McKenry went on the bereavement list, and the contract of C Jackson Williams was selected from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

    NEW YORK — A treasure, possibly worth half a million dollars, could lie behind a granite slab at the base of the Bloomingdale's flagship store in Manhattan in New York City, just a few feet from a window displaying designer handbags: a baseball signed by Babe Ruth.

    According to reports from 1930, this cornerstone of Bloomingdale's flagship store in New York City could have a baseball signed by Babe Ruth and other items entombed with instructions not to open for 200 years. The Ruth ball, if there and in good condition, could be worth a record $500,000. [ New York Times]
