Fleet-footed outfielder Dalton Pompey (Mississauga, Ont.) has rejoined Toronto's active roster and will be available when the Blue Jays kick off a three-game interleague set against the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.

In a corresponding move, right-handed reliever Deck McGuire has been optioned to triple-A Buffalo.

Optioned to Buffalo in favor of infielder Gio Urshela on May 12, Pompey hit .286 (6-for-21) with a walk and 10 strikeouts through six games during his most recent stint with the Bisons. He rejoins Toronto looking to build off a .200/.273/.200 slash line posted through five big league assignments this season.

Through four games with Toronto in 2018, McGuire has posted an ERA of 6.48 with seven strikeouts, five walks and a pair of home runs allowed across 8 1/3 frames.
