The Toronto Blue Jays will call up pitcher Mike Bolsinger to start Tuesday’s game against the Cleveland Indians, while Aaron Sanchez starts a game in extended spring training the same day, reports Sportsnet’s Mike Wilner.
Bolsinger will make his Blue Jays debut and he’ll become the ninth pitcher to make a start for the team this season. Toronto only used seven starters in 2016.
The 26-year-old has appeared in four games for the triple-A Buffalo Bisons this season, posting a 1.46 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 12.1 innings.
The Blue Jays acquired the right-hander in the trade that sent Jesse Chavez to the Los Angeles Dodgers last season. Over his career, Bolsinger has started 36 games, compiling an 8-16 record with a 4.61 ERA.
Toronto opens its series with Edwin Encarnacion and the Indians Monday night at Rogers Centre in a rematch of last year’s ALCS.
