The Toronto Blue Jays have placed Steve Pearce on the 10-day disabled list with a right calf strain.

Pearce suffered the injury in Toronto's 3-2 win over Seattle on Sunday when he slid to avoid a tag after hitting a double.

Pearce had a slow start at the plate this season but has been much better in May, hitting .276 with four home runs and nine runs batted in.

Right-handed reliever Leonel Campos took Pearce's place on the active roster.
