Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Esmil Rogers from Triple-A Buffalo.

Rogers posted a 6.97 ERA over 16 appearances at the major league level earlier this season, but he's back because the Blue Jays need a fresh arm for their bullpen. Look for him to pitch in long relief.

Blue Jays recalled INF Ryan Goins from Triple-A Buffalo.

Goins batted just .150/.203/.217 over 24 games with the Blue Jays earlier this season. He's not fantasy relevant.
Jul 22 - 3:21 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Aaron Sanchez from Triple-A Buffalo.

Sanchez is a highly-regarded starting pitching prospect, but the Jays will break him into the majors as a reliever. The 22-year-old has posted a 3.95 ERA and 84/57 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A.

Blue Jays optioned OF Darin Mastroianni to Triple-A Buffalo.

Mastroianni is hitting .156 (5-for-32) with one home run and two RBI over 14 games this season. He could be back in September.
Jul 22 - 3:17 PM

Blue Jays designated LHP Brad Mills for assignment.

As expected, the move clears a spot for Aaron Sanchez on the active roster. Mills was just claimed off waivers from the A's last week and could soon be on the move again.

Brad Mills is expected to be designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

The move will clear a spot for top prospect Aaron Sanchez, who is expected to join the team's bullpen. Mills was rocked for eight runs over two innings Monday night against the Red Sox.
Jul 22 - 2:34 PM

Blue Jays optioned C Erik Kratz to Triple-A Buffalo.

The Blue Jays are expected to make multiple roster moves in advance of Tuesday's game. Kratz has hit .198 with three homers and a .572 OPS over 84 plate appearances with the Jays this season.
Jul 22 - 2:26 PM

Blue Jays shortstop prospect Franklin Barreto went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, and a stolen base for short season-A Vancouver on Monday, raising his season line to .314/.390/.479.

Barreto has hits in 15 of his last 16 games, putting up a .385/.446/.646 line with six doubles, four triples, and one home run. He is an elite athlete with the potential to hit .280 with 10-plus home runs, 20-plus doubles, and 20-plus stolen bases, but may need to move to the outfield if he cannot improve his infield defense.
Jul 22 - 2:18 PM

Esmil Rogers is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

Rogers was outrighted off the 40-man roster back in May, but the Blue Jays need a fresh arm in their bullpen. The 28-year-old owns a 6.97 ERA over 16 appearances at the major league level this season and figures to pitch in long relief.

Ryan Goins is expected to be called up from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

The Blue Jays will also call up top prospect Aaron Sanchez. No word yet on the corresponding roster moves involved. Goins began the year as Toronto's starting second baseman, but he batted just .150/.203/.217 over 24 games before being demoted. Still, he's highly-regarded for his defense and could have value as a backup infielder.

Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports that the Blue Jays plan to call up prospect right-hander Aaron Sanchez on Tuesday.

Sanchez was just shifted to the bullpen last week in Triple-A, which is where he'll pitch in his first taste of the majors. The 22-year-old has posted a 3.95 ERA and 84/57 K/BB ratio over 100 1/3 innings this season between Double- and Triple-A. He still has a promising future as a starter, but the Jays are hoping he can make an impact down the stretch in a relief role.

Drew Hutchison yielded six runs and nine hits in 2 2/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Red Sox.

Hutchison didn't get much help from his outfield in the two-run first, but he wasn't fooling anyone tonight anyway. He also gave up six runs last time out against the Rays, and his stuff just isn't what it was at the start of the year. The Jays were prepared for him to wear down in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, but they were surely hoping it wouldn't happen so soon.

Making his Blue Jays debut, Brad Mills was pummeled for eight runs in two innings of relief by the Red Sox on Monday.

Mills had two quality starts in three tries for the A's before the Jeff Samardzija-Jason Hammel deal made him expendable; his one failure in that span was also against Boston. The Blue Jays merely paid the waiver price to bring him in last week, so one or two more bad outings and he'll likely be sent packing again.

Adam Lind (foot) is scheduled to take batting practice in Florida on Tuesday.

Lind landed on the disabled list earlier this month with a non-displaced fracture in his right foot. After receiving a second opinion, it was estimated that he could return in about 2-3 weeks, so there's a chance he'll be back in the Jays' lineup in early August if he can avoid setbacks.
Jul 21 - 4:34 PM

Edwin Encarnacion (quad) is scheduled to take batting practice and field ground balls Tuesday in Florida.

Encarnacion is currently working his way back from a strained right quad. It was estimated that he would miss around 2-4 weeks at the time of the injury and he's already at the low-end of that timetable right now.
