TORONTO – The Toronto Blue Jays have recalled right-hander Mitch White and named him the starter for Friday night’s road game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
White had been optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Sept. 14.
Entering play Friday, he had a 0-4 record and 7.47 earned-run average with Toronto since he was acquired in an Aug. 2 trade with the Los Angeles Dodgers. White was 1-6 with a 5.05 ERA in 22 appearances — including 16 starts — with Toronto and L.A. this season.
