Blue Jays place Cavan Biggio on IL with mid-back tightness

Arash Madani and Shi Davidi discussed how Cavan Biggio's injury will allow others to get more playing time in the outfield and Corey Dickerson making his debut with the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed second baseman Cavan Biggio on the 10-day injured list due to mid-back tightness, the team announced Tuesday.

Outfielder Corey Dickerson was also activated from the 10-day IL (left foot contusion) and will make his Blue Jays debut batting sixth Tuesday night against Cleveland.

The 26-year-old Biggio has seven homers and 26 RBI this season and has struggled at the plate with a slash line of .215/.316/.350. He went 0 for 3 with a walk and a strikeout in Monday's matinee against Cleveland.

Dickerson was acquired from the Miami Marlins on June 29 with pitcher Adam Cimber for infielder Joe Panik and minor-league pitcher Andrew McInvale. The 32-year-old Dickerson hit two home runs and drove in 14 runs for Miami this season, slashing .260/.321/.377. He was immediately placed on the IL with a left foot injury following the trade.
