Blue Jays recalled LHP Sean Nolin from Triple-A Buffalo.

Nolin had a 3.50 ERA and 74/35 K/BB ratio in 87 1/3 innings over 17 starts this season in Triple-A. He got blasted in a spot-start with the Blue Jays last season, but will pitch out of the bullpen in his return to the majors this month.

Blue Jays transferred INF Brett Lawrie from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Lawrie landed on the disabled list in early August with an oblique strain and this move rules him out for the rest of the season. The 24-year-old batted .247/.301/.421 with 12 home runs and 38 RBI over 70 games this season and his inability to stay healthy has surely played a part in why he has failed to meet expectations since his impressive showing in 2011.
Sep 2 - 11:53 AM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of C George Kottaras from Triple-A Buffalo.

Kottaras latched on with the Blue Jays last month after he was released by the Cardinals. The 31-year-old will serve as a third catcher down the stretch.
Sep 2 - 11:45 AM

Blue Jays designated OF Darin Mastroianni for assignment.

The move was part of some housecleaning on Toronto's 40-man roster. The speedy outfielder hit .116 (5-for-43) with one home run in 21 games with the Blue Jays this season.
Sep 2 - 11:42 AM

Blue Jays designated 1B Matt Hague for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Hague was just claimed off waivers from the Pirates last month, but he could soon be on the move again.
Sep 2 - 11:41 AM

Blue Jays released RHP Neil Wagner.

Wagner was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Monday. The 30-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery last month and will likely miss most or all of 2015.
Sep 2 - 11:38 AM

Blue Jays released LHP Mike Zagurski.

Zagurski asked for and received his release. The 31-year-old posted a 1.83 ERA and 61/19 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A and will look for an opportunity elsewhere.
Sep 2 - 11:36 AM

Blue Jays activated 1B/DH Dan Johnson from the 15-day disabled list.

Johnson missed all of August with a left hamstring strain. He'll provide some pop off the bench in September.
Sep 2 - 11:32 AM

Blue Jays activated RHP Brandon Morrow from the 60-day disabled list.

Morrow has been out since early May with a finger tendon injury, but he's back to full health now and will pitch out of the bullpen in September. The Blue Jays are likely to decline his $10 million option for 2015, so this is an opportunity to prove his health and effectiveness before free agency.
Sep 2 - 11:30 AM

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

Goins is batting just .197/.22/.262 with one home run and 11 RBI over 132 plate appearances with the Blue Jays this season. He's a strong defender, but can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Sep 2 - 11:24 AM

Blue Jays recalled OF Anthony Gose from Triple-A Buffalo.

Gose has hit .234 with one homer and 14 steals over 69 games with the Blue Jays this season. He'll provide speed and defense off the bench.
Sep 2 - 11:21 AM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of OF Dalton Pompey from Triple-A Buffalo.

Pompey began this season with High-A Dunedin, but he'll finish it in the majors. It's well deserved, as the 21-year-old batted .317/.392/.469 with nine home runs, 51 RBI, and 43 stolen bases over 133 minor league games this season. It's unclear how much he'll play in September, but he's someone to keep an eye on for the future in fantasy leagues.
Sep 2 - 11:18 AM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Kendall Graveman from Triple-A Buffalo.

An eighth-round pick last season, Graveman burned through four levels of the minors this season, posting a 1.83 ERA and 115/31 K/BB ratio over 167 1/3 innings. He gets by more on savvy than stuff and figures to be used in relief for the Jays.
Sep 1 - 9:58 PM

Blue Jays designated RHP Neil Wagner for assignment.

Wagner is now off the 40-man roster. The right-hander underwent Tommy John surgery last month.
Sep 1 - 6:58 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of LHP Daniel Norris from Triple-A Buffalo.

Norris has reemerged as a top pitching prospect after a disappointing 2013 and will be a weapon in long relief down the stretch for Toronto, much like Aaron Sanchez. Norris, 21, posted a 2.53 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 163/43 K/BB ratio in 124 2/3 innings this season between three different levels of the Blue Jays' minor league system.
