If the Toronto Blue Jays are going to dig themselves out from their historically bad start this month, they'll have to do so without Josh Donaldson.

The three-time All-Star was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday after aggravating a nagging calf injury during an April 13 game against the Baltimore Orioles, and it's believed that he will likely miss the next two-to-four weeks, sources told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Donaldson missed a large chunk of spring training after tweaking his calf on the first day he reported to camp, but told reporters Friday that there wasn't as much swelling this time around.

"I am walking gingerly, and there is some soreness, but not as much swelling as there was (at spring training)," Donaldson said.

Losing Donaldson for a significant amount of time is a tough blow for a Toronto team that currently owns the worst record in the majors at 2-10 and an offense that's scored fewer runs than anyone.

It's expected that Darwin Barney, Chris Coghlan, and Ryan Goins will see time at third base until Donaldson returns.
