5/4 Transactions

- Toronto placed starting pitcher Enrique Sojo on the 15-day disabled list today due to a stiff groin.

Sojo has been a strong pitcher since his promotion into the majors back in Season 8. He has posted a 3.70, 4.61, and 3.55 ERA in the past three seasons while holding opponents to .210, .278. and .239 batting average respectively.

Sojo was off to a slow start this season, posting a 7.25 ERA and allowing opponents to bat .308.

"I could tell something was wrong since the beginning of the season," Sojo said. "I wasn't feeling like myself... my groin wasn't right, but I thought I could battle through it."

Toronto called up AAA reliever D'Angelo Parra to replace Sojo on the roster.
