The Toronto Blue Jays are on track for some lineup reinforcements, even if they don't make a move ahead of the Aug. 31 waiver trade deadline.

Right-fielder Jose Bautista reportedly will be in the lineup Thursday for AA New Hampshire and join the Blue Jays in Baltimore in time for Friday's series opener.

Toronto placed the slugger on the disabled list last month with wrist inflammation after felt pain in his wrist on an eighth-inning swing in a July 16 loss to the hometown New York Yankees.
