Blue Jays' Josh Thole: Re-signs with Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Josh Thole re-signed with the Toronto Blue Jays on a one-year, $800,000 deal Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

Thole had just been non-tendered by the Blue Jays on Thursday, but he's coming back to the team after being a free agent for just a day. The 29-year-old had a disappointing campaign last season, hitting just .204/.250/.245, but he should get the chance to earn the backup role behind Russell Martin out of spring training.

Josh Thole: Had contract not tendered by Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thole was not tendered a contract for the 2016 season.

After a frustrating 2015 season for Thole in which he rode the shuttle between the minors and the majors, the catcher will not be brought back by the Blue Jays. The 29-year-old will become a free agent in 2016, and he won't be anything more than a backup catcher wherever he ends up.

Blue Jays recall Drew Hutchison to start Saturday; Thole optioned
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison has been recalled to start Saturday's game against the Tigers. Hutchison was sent down to Triple-A Buffalo following his most recent outing, a start on August 16. The Blue Jays did not need a fifth starter up until now, so they moved the young pitcher to the minors to keep him fresh.

Hutchison is 12-2 this year, but he does own a 5.06 ERA over 24 starts with the Jays--a testiment to Toronto's offensive prowess.  

Hutchison did make a start for the Bisons since his demotion, allowing two runs on three hits over four innings on Sunday.

To clear room for him on the roster, catcher Josh Thole has been optioned to Triple-A. He is expected to return to the club shortly after rosters expand on September 1.

Blue Jays recall C Josh Thole and option Matt Hague to Triple-A
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Blue Jays have recalled catcher Josh Thole from Triple-A Buffalo. Thole was sent down to the minors in early June, after going 7 for 26 in nine games for Toronto.

His numbers haven't gotten a whole lot better with Buffalo, as he owns a .228 average with no home runs in 45 games.

But, Thole does have plenty of experience in catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, who is scheduled to start Sunday against the Angels. So it is likely that Thole will be in the lineup for the series-finale on Sunday.

To clear room on the roster, first baseman Matt Hague was sent down to Triple-A.
