The Return of Russ
After tonight’s 4-3 loss to the Angels, the Jays announced that they have recalled infielder Russ Adams (remember him?) from Triple-A Syracuse. To make room on the roster, Toronto optioned Hector Luna (0-for-9 since being claimed off waivers from the Indians) to Triple-A.
Toronto manager John Gibbons said after the game that Adams will help because he can provide a left-handed bat off the bench. He can also provide some depth at second base and occasionally third, which he’s manned a few times this year in the Minors. On Thursday, Adams played second and third for the Chiefs. Adams has hit .262 with 11 homers and 54 RBIs in 113 games.
