Blue Jays recall Burns and Girodo for interleague play

The Blue Jays turned to Buffalo to bolster their bench for interleague play, calling up infielder Andy Burns from the Bisons today.

Burns, 25, has spent five games with the Blue Jays this season, but is still looking for his first major league hit. He's 0 for 4 with a .200 on-base percentage in his first season in the majors. He's batting .238 with 16 RBIs through 51 AAA games with the Bisons this year and was a late scratch from the Bisons' lineup last night.

The Blue Jays will play the Phillies the next two days at Citizens Bank Park.

Also getting the call from the Blue Jays is pitcher Chad Girodo. He'll be the only left-handed reliever in the Blue Jays' bullpen.

Girodo has a 4.32 ERA and four strikeouts in 8.1 innings pitched with Toronto. He's 2-0 with a 1.93 ERA in 14 innings pitched with the Bisons.

The Blue Jays had two roster spots available after optioning pitchers Aaron Loup and Scott Diamond to Buffalo following their game yesterday afternoon.
