TORONTO (AP)-The Toronto Blue Jays optioned infielder Ryan Roberts to Triple-A Syracuse after Monday's victory over the New York Yankees and purchased the contract of right-handed reliever Brian Wolfe.
The 26-year-old Wolfe was acquired from Milwaukee in the January 2006 trade that sent Corey Koskie to the Brewers.
A sixth-round draft pick by Minnesota in 1999, Wolfe was 2-0 with an 0.84 ERA in 14 games at Syracuse. He struck out 20 and walked just four in 21 2-3 innings, allowing 12 hits.
``He's pitching great down there and he's been on the radar for a while,'' manager John Gibbons. ``An extra arm definitely helps.''
Roberts has had two stints with Toronto this season, going 1-13 in eight games. He was called up for the second time on May 12 when Troy Glaus' troublesome left heel flared up for a second time.
