 TORONTO (AP) -The Toronto Blue Jays purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Joe Kennedy from Triple-A Syracuse before Sunday's game against Seattle, making him the second of five players to join the team as rosters expand for the final month of the season.
Kennedy fills the final spot on Toronto's 40-man roster.
``It's kind of like a 26-game tryout to see where we stand for next year,'' said Kennedy, who is expected to work as a left-handed specialist out of Toronto's bullpen.
Outfielder Adam Lind was recalled from Syracuse on Saturday. Right-hander Josh Banks, infielder Hector Luna and catcher Sal Fasano will join the Blue Jays in Boston Monday or Tuesday.
Kennedy began the season in Oakland as a starter but was moved to the bullpen after going 3-9 with a 4.37 ERA. He appeared in 27 games, including 16 starts, before being placed on waivers.
The Diamondbacks claimed Kennedy on Aug. 4, but he appeared in just three games for Arizona, allowing seven runs in 2 2-3 innings, before being designated for assignment on Aug. 15. The Blue Jays signed Kennedy to a minor league contract on Aug. 28 and assigned him to Triple-A.
``I feel comfortable up here,'' said Kennedy, who is close friends with Toronto DH Frank Thomas. ``I had a couple of other teams who were offering stuff but Toronto was the first one to call, the first one to offer what I wanted.''
Kennedy is 42-61 with a 4.79 ERA in his seven-year career.
