The Toronto Blue Jays placed infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa on the 10-day injured list on Tuesday due to a sprained left knee.

In a corresponding move, the Blue Jays recalled shortstop Leo Jimenez from Triple-A Buffalo. Jimenez is set to make his major league debut.

Kiner-Falefa, 29, was scratched from Monday’s game because he felt something in his knee while stretching, manager John Schneider said after the 3-1 loss to the visiting Houston Astros. The move is retroactive to Monday.

In his first season with Toronto, after signing a two-year, $15 million contract, Kiner-Falefa is batting .292 with seven home runs, 33 RBIs, a .338 on-base percentage, .420 slugging percentage and .758 OPS.

A fourth-round selection by the Texas Rangers in 2013, Kiner-Falefa is a career .264 hitter with 33 homers and 236 RBIs in 729 games for the Rangers (2018-21), New York Yankees (2022-23) and Blue Jays.

He won the American League Gold Glove for third basemen in 2020.

Jimenez, 23, is ranked the Blue Jays’ No. 5 prospect by MLB Pipeline. The native of Panama was batting .271 with eight doubles, seven home runs and 23 RBIs in 57 games at Buffalo.
