The Toronto Blue Jays activated infielder Brett Lawrie from the disabled list on Monday.

Lawrie has been out since he suffered a fractured right index finger when he was hit in the hand by a Johnny Cueto pitch on June 22 in Cincinnati.

Lawrie completed his rehab stint with Single 'A' Dunedin over the weekend, playing both second and third base.

To make room on the roster, the Jays placed infielder Steve Tolleson on the paternity list.

Tolleson, 30, is batting .246 through 73 games this season with three home runs and 13 RBIs.

He will be inactive for a minimum of one day and a maximum of three.

Meanwhile, first baseman Adam Lind (fractured right foot) could begin his minor league rehabilitation assignment this week and third baseman Edwin Encarnacion (strained right quadriceps) is not close to returning.
