Blue Jays option RHP Drabek to Triple-A

TORONTO (AP) The Blue Jays optioned right-hander Kyle Drabek to Triple-A Buffalo Sunday to clear a roster spot for right-hander Sergio Santos.

Santos was selected from Buffalo after Saturday's 5-4, 10-inning win over Tampa Bay, a game the Rays played under protest following a contentious replay review in the fourth inning.

Drabek was recalled from Triple-A on Aug. 16 and had no record in three appearances with the Blue Jays, striking out five batters in three innings.

Santos was 0-2 with a 7.78 ERA in 24 games with Toronto before being sent to the minors in late July. He went 1-0 with two saves in 11 appearances with the Bisons.
