The Toronto Blue Jays assigned three more players to minor-league camp on Friday.

Right-handers Chad Jenkins and David Aardsma and left-hander Chad Girodo will report to triple-A Buffalo to start the season, leaving the Blue Jays with 44 players remaining in camp.

Jenkins made a brief appearance with the Blue Jays last season, while Aardsma was given a minor-league deal after pitching out of the Atlanta Braves bullpen in 2015. Girodo, 25, split time last year between single-A Dunedin and double-A New Hampshire before joining triple-A Buffalo at the end of the season.
