Courtesy of the Toronto Blue Jays — The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have placed outfielder JOSE BAUTISTA on the 15-day disabled with left wrist inflammation and have selected the contract of outfielder ANTHONY GOSE from Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League (AAA).

BAUTISTA, 31, suffered the injury last night in New York while batting in the eighth inning.  The 6-0, 192lb right handed hitter is tied for second in the AL with 27 home runs and tied for third in RBI with 65.   This season the reigning two-time AL home run leader was selected to this third consecutive All-Star team.

GOSE, 21, has spent the 2012 season with Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League (AAA) batting .292 with 18 doubles, 10 triples and five home runs while collecting 41 RBI.  The 6-1, 190lb. left-handed hitter leads the league in stolen bases with 29 and has scored 77 runs which is third in the league.  This summer the Paramount, California native appeared in MLB Futures Game in Kansas City.  Gose was acquired from the Houston Astros on July 29, 2010 in exchange for 1B Brett Wallace.  He is set to make his Major League debut.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Gose, the Blue Jays have transferred RHP BRANDON MORROW to the 60-day disabled list.
