The Blue Jays promoted Pannone after he made six starts for the Bisons and posted a 4.91 ERA. The native of Rhode Island missed the start of the Minor League season after he received a suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance.

Toronto has an opening in its rotation following the departure of Hauschild, who was being used as an emergency replacement. Hauschild allowed four runs over 2 1/3 innings in a 10-5 loss to Boston on Wednesday.
