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.
Adams has played in 251 games with Toronto over three seasons, batting .249 with 15 home runs and 101 RBIs. He lost his job as Toronto's starting shortstop in 2006 following a string of throwing errors and was later moved to second base.
Luna, was claimed off waivers from Cleveland on August 3. He appeared in seven games for the Blue Jays and did not record a hit in nine at bats. Luna pinch ran for Frank Thomas in the ninth inning of Thursday's game and scored his first run as a Blue Jay on a single by Gregg Zaun.
