|(5/20/15) Blue Jays left-handed reliever Jeff Francis has cleared waivers and will report to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, according to SportsNet. Francis was designated for assignment by Toronto on Sunday.

|(5/17/15) The Blue Jays have added pitcher Todd Redmond from Triple-A Buffalo and designated pitcher Jeff Francis for assignment, according to SportsNet.
Francis posted a 1-2 record with a 6.75 ERA in 12 innings of work. He recorded 15 strikeouts with five walks. Redmond posted a 5.06 ERA with a 3-1 record in 26 2/3 innings of work in Triple-A.
Blue Jays' Jeff Francis bails out rookie pitcher to earn first win
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/1/15) After Blue Jays rookie starting pitcher Daniel Norris lasted just three innings and 78 pitches on Thursday at Cleveland, Toronto leaned on veteran pitcher Jeff Francis to help pick up the slack. He did just that, earning his first relief win of the season as he allowed one run on three hits and no walks in 2 1/3 innings.
Francis has a 3.60 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 10 innings (four relief outings) this season.
"He's a veteran strike-thrower," catcher Russell Martin said, per MLB.com. "He's kind of deceptive -- everything comes out of the same angle. He hides the ball well and has got two different breaking balls with a nice changeup. He kind of varies the speeds on his fastball a little bit and just does enough to keep guys off balance. That's what he's been doing well."
