Third baseman Brett Lawrie was activated from the disabled list, the Toronto Blue Jays officially announced Tuesday morning.

Lawrie has been out of action since June 22, when he suffered a fractured right index finger after he was hit in the hand by Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto.

The 24-year-old finished a rehab assignment with single 'A' Dunedin this past weekend.

Lawrie, 24, appeared in three games with Dunedin, going 4-for-10 for a .400 batting average. In 69 games this season with the Blue Jays, the right-handed hitter is batting .244 with 12 home runs and 38 runs batted in.

Toronto, which sits four games behind American East-leading Baltimore, begins a critical three-game series against the visiting Orioles on Tuesday night at Rogers Centre.

In other Blue Jays news, infielder Steve Tolleson has been placed on the paternity list.

The 30-year-old is hitting .246 through 73 games this season with three home runs and 13 RBIs. 

Tolleson will be inactive for a minimum of one day and a maximum of three.
