Rob Rasmussen called up by Blue Jays
Toronto summons reliever for Saturday's game vs. Reds
The Toronto Blue Jays added a reliever for the second game of their series against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, calling up left-hander Rob Rasmussen for the second time this season.
Rasmussen didn't have a decision during his four appearances in May, when he gave up two hits and no runs in two innings.
Toronto used five relievers while pulling off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history on Friday night, rallying from an 8-0 deficit to a 14-9 win. Liam Hendriks started and lasted only 1 2-3 innings, giving up six hits and six runs.
Hendriks was optioned back to Triple-A Buffalo as planned. The Blue Jays had called him up to start in place of R.A. Dickey, who was pushed back to Sunday to let his sore groin heal.
