The Toronto Blue Jays have selected the contract of left-handed pitcher Nick Allgeyer and transferred reliever David Phelps to the 60-day injured list.

The move comes after the Blue Jays place reliever Ryan Borucki on the injured list Friday with a left forearm flexor strain.

Allgeyer, 25, was a 12th-round pick of the Blue Jays in the 2018 draft. In two starts for triple-A Buffalo this season, the St. Louis native has allowed seven hits, two earned runs and struck out 10 across 12 innings.

Phelps was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right lat strain on May 6.
