The Toronto Blue Jays have placed outfielder Jose Bautista on the 15-day disabled list with a hip bone bruise.

Bautista was removed in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader in New York against the Yankees after feeling soreness in his left hip.

The right fielder wasn't in the lineup for the second game as Toronto extended its losing streak in New York to 11 games.

The 32-year-old slugger is hitting .259 with 28 home runs and 78 RBIs this season.

Toronto has yet to announce who will be called up from the minors to replace Bautista in the 40-man roster.
