TORONTO (AP) - The Toronto Blue Jays have put All-Star first baseman Edwin Encarnacion on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained right quadriceps.

The Blue Jays made the move before Monday night’s game at the Los Angeles Angels and activated outfielder Nolan Reimold.

Encarnacion ranks among the major league leaders with 26 home runs and 70 RBIs. He was picked Sunday for the AL All-Star team, but won’t be able to play in the game July 15 at Minnesota.

Encarnacion was hurt while running out a double-play relay Saturday in Oakland.

The Blue Jays claimed Reimold off waivers from Baltimore over the weekend. He had back surgery last July and played 17 games for Double-A Bowie this year while on a rehabilitation assignment, hitting .315. Over parts of five seasons with the Orioles, he hit .252 with 41 home runs.

Also, Toronto outfielder Kenny Wilson was claimed off waivers by Oakland.
