Toronto Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio goes on 10-day IL with nagging back issue

The Toronto Blue Jays placed infielder Cavan Biggio on the 10-day injured list with mid-back tightness.

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Biggio has been bothered by the back issue all season, but said he is hopeful the stint won't be longer than the minimum.

Biggio, 26, went 0-for-3 with a walk in Monday night's 5-2 loss in 10 innings. He is batting .215 with seven homers and 26 RBIs this season.

In a corresponding move, outfielder Corey Dickerson was activated from the IL and started in Tuesday night's 7-2 win over the Cleveland Indians. Dickerson, who served as the designated hitter, went 0-for-4.
