Blue Jays recalled LHP Rob Rasmussen from Triple-A Buffalo.

Rasmussen, who was acquired from the Phillies in the Brad Lincoln deal, owns a 2.65 ERA and 19/10 K/BB ratio over 17 innings in Triple-A this year. While the 25-year-old has mostly been a starter in the minors, he has pitched exclusively in relief this year. The Blue Jays are hoping he'll be an upgrade for their shaky bullpen.
May 20 - 11:28 AM

Blue Jays acquired LHP Robert Rasmussen and C Erik Kratz from the Phillies for RHP Brad Lincoln.

Rasmussen was acquired by the Phils from the Dodgers in the Michael Young deal. He posted a 4.11 ERA with 113 strikeouts over 135 2/3 frames between Double- and Triple-A this season. While he's probably a longshot to do anything as a starter, he has a chance to make it as a reliever.

Rasmussen has posted a 4.11 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 113/60 K/BB ratio in 135 2/3 innings (mostly as a starter) this season between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Albuquerque. The 25-year-old lefty isn't much of a prospect.

Dodgers acquired LHP Rob Rasmussen from the Astros for RHP John Ely.

A second-round pick in 2010, Rasmussen was part of the package that sent Carlos Lee to the Marlins at last year's trade deadline. He posted a 4.25 ERA in 142 innings between two different levels of the minors this past season and his ceiling is probably that of a fifth starter.

Astros acquired LHP Rob Rasmussen and 3B Matt Dominguez from the Marlins for 1B Carlos Lee and cash considerations.

Rasmussen was a second-round pick of the Fish in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft and has posted a decent 3.90 ERA and 75/36 K/BB ratio across 87 2/3 innings this season in High-A ball. His ceiling is probably that of a fifth starter, but it's still a nice get for the talent-hungry 'Stros.
