Outfielder Melky Cabrera has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, and shortstop Munenori Kawasaki has been recalled from triple-A Buffalo, the Blue Jays announced Thursday night after their game against the Boston Red Sox.

Cabrera has been troubled by left knee tendinitis all season and it flared up again Thursday.

Kawasaki was sent down just two days ago, but demoted players can be recalled immediately in case of an injury.
