by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The 24-year-old Boyd, who has pitched in two games for Toronto, has been lights-out at Double-A New Hampshire and Triple-A Buffalo this season with a 9-2 record and 1.68 ERA. But his ERA in games pitched for the Bisons in 2.77. He has 107 strikeouts in 112 2/3 innings on the year.

Labourt, 21, has pitched all year at Class A Advanced Dunedin. He is just 2-7 with a 4.59 ERA. Walks with been a problem - he has issued 40 free passes in 80 1/3 innings. His fastball has topped out at 95 mph, per fangraphs.com.
