The Blue Jays added Kivlehan to their 60-man roster pool Thursday.

Kivlehan, pitcher Bryan Baker and outfielder Josh Palacios all joined the 60-man pool, bringing the Blue Jays' total to 62 men. As Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca notes, teams can only exceed the 60-man limit by placing players on the COVID-19 injured list, which suggests at least two Blue Jays included in the roster pool have tested positive for the coronavirus. Kivlehan has logged 242 plate appearances at the MLB level, but he spent the entire 2019 campaign in the minors, seeing most of his action at the Triple-A level and slashing .255/.339/.532 overall with 32 home runs and 84 RBI in 125 games. Though he'll join the Blue Jays for summer camp, Kivlehan is unlikely to crack the team's 30-man Opening Day roster.
