The Blue Jays are calling up Sergio Santos for tomorrow's game. They haven't announced who is making the trip to Buffalo to make room for Sergio but it will be Chad Jenkins , Kyle Drabek unless someone is going on the DL and we haven't been told about it yet. I guess it could be Juan Francisco too, he hasn't started a game since August 17th and he's hitting just .077/.122/.128 in August.

Santos has pitched in 11 games for the Buffalo Bisons. He has a 0.00 ERA and has allowed 3 hits, 6 walks with 16 strikeouts in 10.2 innings. Of course, as a Jay he had a 7.78 ERA in 19.2 innings, 24 hits, 3 home runs, 17 walks and 26 strikeouts. He also had 3 blown saves.

I'd like to think he worked out his delivery problems. down with the Bisons, but he's going to have to show me before I believe it. Then, it isn't like Casey Janssen has been great of late. He's blown 2 saves this month.

Anyway, welcome back Sergio.

UPDATE

Even though he threw three scoreless innings in his brief stint back with Toronto, Kyle Drabek has been chosen to be optioned. He'll be back in September.
