The Blue Jays conducted the following minor league transactions over the last few days:
- RHP Zach Dials, 24, was released from the AA New Hampshire Fishercats. He had only struck out 1, walked 5, gave up 8 hits, and held a 5.68 ERA in his 6.1 innings of work;
- C/INF Al Quintana, 27, was demoted to HiA Dunedin from AA New Hampshire, making room for the next transaction;
- C Jonathan Jaspe was activated by the New Hampshire Fishercats off the 7-day DL;
- RHP Dumas Garcia, 26, was promoted from HiA Dunedin to AA New Hampshire. He had given up 1 ER, 4 walks and got 5 Ks so far in 7 inning with Dunedin;
- C Jack Murphy was transfered from extended spring training to LoA Lansing. Murphy is 22 years old and was drafted by the Jays in the 31st round of the ’09 draft. He got minimal playing time in the GCL and the NYP leagues last season and had a mediocre showing. It’ll be interesting to see how much playing time he gets with hot starting C AJ Jimenez on board.
