TORONTO — The Blue Jays have optioned left-hander Colt Hynes to Triple-A Buffalo and called up left-hander Jeff Francis from Triple-A.

Hynes had no record and a 6.00 ERA in five appearances with Toronto this season. He pitched in 22 games for San Diego in 2013.

Francis was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in one start at Buffalo. Colorado's first round pick in the 2002 draft, the 10-year veteran has also pitched for Kansas City, Cincinnati, Oakland and the New York Yankees.

Francis is the third Canadian-born player on Toronto's roster, joining catcher Russell Martin and outfielder Dalton Pompey. Canadian outfielder Michael Saunders (left knee) is on the disabled list.
