Espinal was lifted from Saturday’s win over Detroit after the second inning with the injury. He is hitting .290/.354/.378 with 15 RBIs in 83 games this season.
In a corresponding move, the Blue Jays have activated veteran outfielder Jarrod Dyson after claiming him off waivers from the Royals last week. Dyson will be available off the bench Sunday.
