Jays Roster Moves – May 27, 2012

After the Jays crushing 13-inning loss to the Texas Rangers yesterday, during which they simply ran out of pitching, the Jays made a series of roster moves to address these issues for today’s game.  After two hideous outings, Ryota Igarashi was designated for assignment to clear a 40-man spot for RHP Jesse Chavez, brought up to bolster the bullpen on an emergency basis.  Yan Gomes was also sent back to AAA Las Vegas to open a 25-man spot for RHP Chad Beck and give him consistent playing time.  This  leaves the Jays with an eight-man bullpen, which Farrell said is temporary.

Kelly Johnson (hamstring) received a cortisone shot behind his right knee and is unavailable today.  He may see the disabled list of the hamstring continues to be a problem

Despite the moves, the Jays are still short-handed and available players are as follows: Rajai Davis & Jeff Mathis on the bench with Jesse Chavez, Chad Beck, Luis Perez and Francisco Cordero in the bullpen.
