Blue Jays make changes to roster
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Blue Jays made a few roster moves as expected Tuesday.

The team selected the contract of infielder Munenori Kawasaki from Triple-A Buffalo after placing infielder Maicer Izturis (knee) on the 15-day disabled list. Izturis is expected to miss 4-6 recovering from a torn LCL in his knee.

To make room for Kawasaki on the 40-man roster, pitcher Marcus Walden was designated for assignment. Pitcher Jeremy Jeffress also cleared waivers and was outrighted to Buffalo.

Munenori Kawasaki singles twice Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays infielder Munenori Kawasaki singled in both his at-bats as he drew the start in Friday's 4-2 win over the Pirates. Manager John Gibbons praised the shortstop after the game.

"I said this all last year, when he's on the field, good things usually happen," Gibbons told MLB.com. "When he's at-bat, he gives you a good at-bat, fundamentally, he's a sound defensive player. On the bases, he's got real good instincts. Just a good all-around player."

Kawasaki will provide depth at both middle infield positions for the Blue Jays after hitting .229/.326/.308 in 240 at-bats last season.

Munenori Kawasaki works in left field during intrasquad game
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays infieler Munenori Kawasaki played left field during Tuesday's intrasquad game as the team attempts to increase his verstaility with the hope of using him as a superutility player, MLB.com reports.

"We're going to play him a little bit in the outfield," manager John Gibbons said. "If he can do it, it just makes his opportunities better on the team. He's a good athlete, he can play out there. You'll see him out there a bit. How often? I'm not sure."

Kawasaki didn't receive any defensive chances in left field during the game, but he should get the opportunity to show his outfield chops before long.
