Peralta returns to disabled list

St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Jhonny Peralta is going back on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained ligament in his surgically repaired left thumb. 

The 34-year-old Peralta (.221, five homers, 13 runs batted in) missed the first 57 games of the season before returning June 7.

Toronto slugger Jose Bautista (turf toe) is expected to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday and could rejoin the Blue Jays on Monday.
