The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have selected RHP NEIL RAMÍREZ to the Major League roster and he will be active for today’s game. To make room on the 25-man roster, RHP JASON ADAM has been optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. To make room on the 40-man roster, LHP RYAN BORUCKI has been transferred to the 60-day injured list.
RAMÍREZ, 30, posted a 0-1 record with a 5.40 ERA across 16 relief appearances for Cleveland this season, striking out 18 batters in 16.2 innings pitched. The 6-4, 215 lb. right-handed pitcher was signed by the Blue Jays to a minor league deal on August 6 after being released by the Indians four days earlier. He was selected in the first round (44th overall) by the Texas Rangers in the 2007 First-Year Player Draft. The Virginia Beach, VA, native owns a career record of 4-8 with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP in six seasons with six different teams.
