The Toronto Blue Jays activated left-fielder Melky Cabrera off the 15-day disabled list in time for Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The 28-year-old had been out of the lineup since June 27 with tendinitis in his left knee.

Signed as a free agent in the off-season, Cabrera is batting .278 with three home runs and 29 RBIs in 78 games in 2013.
