Blue Jays Recall Pitcher

There's a new face joining the Toronto Blue Jays' active roster. 

The Blue Jays have recalled pitcher Foster Griffin from Triple-A Buffalo. 

Griffin was acquired from the Kansas City Royals a few months ago and will join the Blue Jays bullpen on Wednesday against the Philadelphia Phillies.

In six career innings at the major league level, Griffin has allowed six earned runs. The twenty-seven-year-old has registered a very strong 2.01 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 55 strikeouts over 49 innings at the minor league level this season. In 37 appearances, Griffin has a 6-0 record and has converted one save.
