While the baseball world remains mostly dormant, the Toronto Blue Jays announced on Friday that pitchers Anthony Kay and Sean Reid-Foley have been optioned to Triple-A Buffalo.

Kay, 24, was one of two prospects to come over from the New York Mets in last season’s Marcus Stroman trade. The left-hander debuted in 2019, posting a 5.79 ERA in 14 innings across three outings.

Reid-Foley, 24, has a 4.71 ERA in 65 innings across two seasons of big-league work. The right-hander was the Blue Jays’ second round pick in the 2014 draft.

Despite the closure of spring training and the uncertainty of when the MLB season will start amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Toronto was able to make these moves because MLB rosters remain fluid (unlike in the NHL, which initiated a roster freeze on Monday).
