Toussaint was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday. Toussaint's stay on the big-league roster lasted just one week. It included a stellar six-inning relief appearance and an awful start in which he allowed seven runs in just 1.1 innings against the Indians on Saturday. He'll be replaced on the roster by Bryse Wilson.
