The Toronto Blue Jays placed left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with a neck strain.
General manager Ross Atkins told reporters that he expects Ryu to miss just one start. Atkins said Ryu woke up with a tight neck Thursday, the day after his last start against the Minnesota Twins, when he took the loss after allowing five earned runs and two home runs in just two innings pitched.
Ryu (13-9) is tied for the team lead in wins.
The Blue Jays enter Sunday’s games with a half-game lead over the New York Yankees for second place as a wild card.
