 TORONTO (AP) -The Blue Jays optioned infielder Hector Luna to Triple-A Syracuse following Thursday night's 4-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels and recalled infielder Russ Adams from Triple-A.
Adams was Toronto's first round selection in the June 2002 draft. He was batting .262 with 11 home runs and 54 RBIs in 113 games at Triple-A.
