The Toronto Blue Jays have designated right-handed pitcher Andrew Carpenter for assignment, as reported by Barry Davis of Sportsnet. The team also made a few other roster moves following their extra innings loss on Friday night, including demoting southpaw Brett Cecil to Class Triple-A Las Vegas. The two moves opened up a pair of roster spots on Toronto's roster for the recalls of prospect Adeiny Hechavarria and right-handed pitcher Jesse Chavez.

The 27-year-old Carpenter appeared in just six games for the Jays this season while posting a 5.00 ERA across 9 innings of work along with a 9.0 K/9, 6.0 BB/9 and 4.0 HR/9.

The big news here is the call up of Hechavarria. The 23-year-old is known for his defense at the shortstop position, but could also play third base because of his great arm.
