ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Toronto Blue Jays have recalled catcher J.P Arencibia from Triple-A Las Vegas and reinstated left-handed pitcher David Purcey from the 15-day disabled list.

The moves were made before Wednesday night's game against Tampa Bay.

Purcey had been sidelined with a right foot injury since Aug. 13.

Arencibia hit the first pitch he saw in the majors for a home run on Aug. 7 in a game against Tampa Bay. He was sent back to the minors two weeks later.
