Blue Jays reinstate Belt from injured list, option Horwitz to triple-A

The Toronto Blue Jays have reinstated Brandon Belt from the 10-day injured list and will have him active for Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Miami Marlins.

Belt has been sidelined since June 10 with left hamstring inflammation, which he suffered while trying to score from second base. As the 35-year-old arrived at home plate, he reached back and grabbed his left leg.

At the time, Belt was one of Toronto’s better hitters in recent weeks. He is slashing .263/.378/.434 with four homers and 16 RBI this season.

Belt signed a one-year deal with the Blue Jays in the off-season worth $9.3 million.

To make room for Belt, Spencer Horwitz has been optioned to triple-A Buffalo.

Horwitz had two hits, scored a run and had an RBI in eight at bats in his three games with Toronto this season.

The Blue Jays take on the Marlins in the third game of the series, with first pitch scheduled for 12:10 p.m. ET / 9:10 a.m. PT on Sportsnet and SN NOW.
