TORONTO (AP)-The Toronto Blue Jays optioned right-handed pitcher Jaime Vermilyea to Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday, purchased the contract of infielder Howie Clark and designated infielder Ryan Roberts for assignment.
The move gives the Blue Jays 13 position players and 12 pitchers.
Vermilyea pitched in just two games for Toronto, working six scoreless innings. He allowed five hits, struck out two and walked none. His most recent appearance was May 10 against Boston.
Clark was batting .246 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 14 games at Syracuse.
Roberts, who was sent down following Monday's game, appeared in eight games for Toronto. He batted .077 with no home runs and no RBIs.
