In advance of a four-game set against the American East-leading New York Yankees, the Toronto Blue Jays designated Mike Bolsinger for assignment and recalled Leonel Campos from triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.
Responsible for a total of five starts with the Blue Jays since receiving a call-up on May 9, Bolsinger went 0-2 with an ERA of 5.61 across 25 2/3 innings. The 29-year-old righty allowed three home runs, walked 19 and struck out 21 batters over his brief stint with the club.
Flipped from the Los Angeles Dodgers to the Blue Jays in exchange for Jesse Chavez last August, Bolsinger is without options remaining on his contract and is currently available to other major league clubs via waivers.
Campos, 29, has appeared in 13 games with the triple-A Bisons in 2017, going 1-0 with six walks allowed, 18 strikeouts and four saves over 16 2/3 frames. Thursday’s recall marks his third stint with the Blue Jays since being claimed off waivers from the San Diego Padres last November.
Having previously made four appearances out of the Blue Jays' bullpen this season, Campos rejoins the team sporting an ERA of 3.60 with nine punch outs over five frames.
Another roster move will be made following Thursday's game as left-handed starter Francisco Liriano is set to be activated off of the 10-day disabled list to start against the Bombers on Friday.
