Apparent roster snafu changes Blue Jays pitching plans

ATLANTA (AP) — An apparent roster snafu forced the Toronto Blue Jays to change their pitching plans against the Atlanta Braves. The Blue Jays optioned right-hander Jacob Waguespack to the team’s alternate training site before the game to reach the 28-man roster limit. Manager Charlie Montoyo told reporters before the game Waguespack was then recalled when right-hander Trent Thornton was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation. That move apparently was not processed, leaving Waguespack off the active roster. Montoyo tried to bring in Waguespack to open the sixth. Instead home plate umpire Alan Porter apparently delivered some bad news: The right-hander wasn’t on the 28-man active roster.
