Blue Jays recall OF Mastroianni from minors

TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Blue Jays have recalled outfielder Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Buffalo.

Toronto also sent left-handed reliever Rob Rasmussen to its top farm club before Saturday's game against the Chicago White Sox.

Mastroianni was claimed off waivers from Minnesota in April. He is 0 for 13 in eight games this season with the Blue Jays and Twins.

Rasmussen pitched a scoreless inning in Friday's 5-4 loss to the White Sox. He had no record and a 6.00 ERA in seven games with Toronto.
