 TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Blue Jays purchased the contract of right-hander Jordan De Jong from Triple-A Syracuse on Wednesday and optioned righty Brian Wolfe to the minor league team.
The 28-year-old De Jong started the season at Double-A New Hampshire and was promoted after eight games, giving up just one run in 14 innings.
At Syracuse, De Jong went 2-0 with a 2.31 ERA and two saves in 13 games. He struck out 25 and walked seven in 23 1-3 innings.
The 26-year-old Wolfe did not record a decision in four games with the Blue Jays. He gave up two runs over 1 2-3 innings in Toronto's 12-11 victory over Tampa Bay on Tuesday.
``It gives us a fresh arm, nothing more than that,'' Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. ``We've got another arm today in case the game gets lopsided.''
To make room on the 40-man roster, the Blue Jays designated right-hander Israel Rammer for assignment.
