  • Jays make 40-man roster additions

    The TORONTO BLUE JAYS made two additions to the 40-man roster today by selecting the contract of 1B BRIAN DOPIRAK from Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League and claiming infielder MIKE McCOY on waivers from the Colorado Rockies.

    DOPIRAK, 25, split the 2009 season between New Hampshire of the Eastern League (AA) and Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League (AAA). Combined, the 6-4, 220 lb. right-handed hitter posted a .317 average with 42 doubles, 27 home runs and 102 RBI in 139 games. The Palm Harbor, Florida resident was selected as the R. Howard Webster Award (MVP) winner for New Hampshire in 2009.

    McCOY, 28, hit .307 in 2009 with 27 doubles, five triples, 102 runs scored and 40 stolen bases for Colorado Springs of the Pacific Coast League (AAA). The 5-9, 175 lb. right-handed hitter posted a .405 on-base percentage with 80 walks and 70 strikeouts in 132 games. The San Diego, California native appeared in 12 games for Colorado last season going hitless in five at bats.
    Not surprised by Dopirak's addition at all and McCoy looks like he's got some wheels (something we could really use).

    And the Jays have added 1 more:

    The TORONTO BLUE JAYS added RHP REIDIER GONZALEZ to the major league roster. The club now has 38 players on the 40-man roster.

    GONZALEZ, 23, spent the past season with New Hampshire of the Eastern League (AA) compiling a 4-6 record with a 2.90 ERA in 17 starts. The Villa Clara, Cuba native was a 19th round pick by the Blue Jays in 2005 and has posted a 3.25 ERA in 84 career games.
