      Blue Jays' Anthony Alford: Optioned to Triple-A

      Anthony Alford was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo after Sunday's game against the Red Sox.Alford saw fairly regular playing time this past week but only notched two hits in 14 at-bats while posting a 6:2 K:BB over that stretch. The Toronto Blue Jays want him playing every day, but considering he appeared overmatched against big-league pitching, they are opting for him to get those everyday at-bats at the Triple-A level. If he gets rolling, he could return to take on an everyday role for the big club, but there's no knowing when that might be. Teoscar Hernandez, Kevin Pillar and Curtis Granderson will see the bulk of the starts in the outfield going forward.

      Blue Jays' Anthony Alford: Draws third straight start

      Anthony Alford will start in left field and bat eighth Sunday against the Red Sox, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.With the Toronto Blue Jays opposing left-handed starters in three straight games, Alford has been a fixture in the lineup throughout the series with Boston while the lefty-hitting Curtis Granderson has settled into a bench role. Alford has recorded one hit in six at-bats over the first two games of the series and is just 2-for-12 overall since being recalled from Triple-A Buffalo earlier this month, so he'll likely need to step up his performance if he hopes to retain a short-side platoon role in the outfield.
