Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - The Toronto Blue Jays have activated outfielder Melky Cabrera from the 15-day disabled list.

Cabrera landed on the DL on June 28 with left knee tendinitis. He was hitting .278 with three homers and 29 RBI before the injury.

The switch-hitter will bat fifth and play left field in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.

To make room on the roster for Cabrera, the Blue Jays optioned pitcher Neil Wagner to Triple-A Buffalo. The right-hander went 2-3 with a 3.26 ERA in 20 relief appearances.
