The injuries just won't stop for the Toronto Blue Jays, as the team announced Thursday that left-hander Francisco Liriano has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation.

Right-hander Leonel Campos was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

Liriano's trip to the DL comes a day after an outing that pushed his ERA to 6.35. He allowed seven runs on five hits and three walks over two-plus innings against the Cleveland Indians at Rogers Centre on Wednesday. The former All-Star has issued at least three walks in five of his seven starts this year, and his average fastball velocity - 92.22 miles per hour - is down nearly two ticks from a season ago.

"I'm just going through a tough time right now," Liriano told Sportsnet's Arden Zwelling following his club's come-from-behind, 8-7 victory Wednesday night. "I'm trying to find a way to find out what it is and find a way to get better every start and try to go deeper. I don't know. I'm just going through a tough situation right now. But you’ve got to stay positive and try to find a way to get better."

Liriano now joins fellow starters J.A. Happ and Aaron Sanchez on the disabled list, though the Blue Jays' coterie of injured players also includes Josh Donaldson, Troy Tulowitzki, Russell Martin, and Kendrys Morales.

Mike Bolsinger, who made his first start of the year for Toronto on Tuesday, will take the ball in place of Liriano on Monday against Atlanta, Sportsnet's Ben Nicholson-Smith reports.
