The Toronto Blue Jays placed catcher Russell Martin on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with a strained left oblique and selected the contract of catcher Mike Ohlman from Triple-A Buffalo.

The Blue Jays catcher was seen grimacing during his first inning at-bat after he appeared to slip running out of the batter's box on a ground out to third base. The left-hander tossed six innings of one-run ball while striking out eight and walking three.

Toronto's Danny Barnes pitched a ideal ninth with two strikeouts. The Pirates right-hander struck out six and walked five. With the Pirates entering play on Friday just three games back of the NL Central Division lead, it goes without saying losing McCutchen for any length of time would hinder their chances of making a push for the playoffs. Ryan Goins singled to center to put runners at the corners.
