The Toronto Blue Jays placed All-Star shortstop Bo Bichette on the 10-day injured list with a right quad strain, the club announced Tuesday.

Bichette was removed from Sunday's game against the Cleveland Guardians with right quad tightness.

Infielder Mason McCoy was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding roster move.

Bichette missed nearly three weeks of action earlier in August with right patellar tendinitis. The 25-year-old had eight hits across 35 at-bats over eight games after returning from his previous IL stint.

McCoy was acquired in a trade with the Seattle Mariners for reliever Trent Thornton. The 28-year-old can play shortstop, third base, and second base. He owns a .572 OPS with one home run and nine RBIs in 21 games since joining Toronto's Triple-A affiliate.
