The Toronto Blue Jays made a pair of roster moves between their season-ending double-header in Baltimore on Wednesday, one of which could have playoff implications.

The Jays recalled right-handed pitcher Trent Thornton and indicated he would be active in the late game. They also optioned RHP Mitch White, who had given up seven hits and five earned runs over four innings in the Game 1 loss to the Orioles.

The move means White cannot be on the Blue Jays' wild-card roster, unless he's needed as an injury replacement, according to Sportsnet's Arden Zwelling.

The Jays then made another pair of moves, recalling infielder Vinny Capra from Triple-A and putting him on the 60-day injured list, in place of RHP Nate Pearson, who was moved off that list and optioned to Buffalo.
