The emergence of Teoscar Hernandez has prompted the Blue Jays to make a flurry of roster moves to ensure he will receive playing time in the outfield.
Spin: Toronto activated designated hitter Kendrys Morales from the disabled list on Friday afternoon, but instead of sending Hernandez back to the Minors -- as was initially expected last week -- the Blue Jays optioned infielder Gift Ngoepe and lefty reliever Tim Mayza to Triple-A Buffalo. The moves also made room for Toronto to promote Cuban prospect Lourdes Gurriel Jr. from Double-A New Hampshire. Toronto's decision to keep Hernandez on the big league squad means the club has five outfielders on the 25-man roster. Randal Grichuk, who has just five hits in 57 at-bats this season and is out of options, is expected to be mostly relegated to the bench. The configuration of the roster is not sustainable over the long haul, but it buys the Blue Jays time until Josh Donaldson returns from the DL -- which won't happen until the beginning of next week at the earliest. If Hernandez continues to hit at this rate, then it will be impossible to send him back to the Minors. If his bat cools off, or someone gets hurt before Donaldson returns, Grichuk could re-enter the fold. Grichuk needs to remain on the active roster or be placed on waivers.
