The Toronto Blue Jays recalled outfielder Travis Snider from triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday and designated Juan Rivera for assignment.

The 23-year-old Snider started the season with the Blue Jays before being sent down on April 28. In 49 games with Las Vegas, Snider hit .333 with 21 doubles, two home runs, and 21 RBI. He was hitting .184 with Toronto prior to being demoted after the first 25 games of the season.

Rivera, 33, came over from the Los Angeles Angels as part of the Vernon Wells trade during the off-season. He played in 70 games for Toronto with six home runs and 27 RBI. He hit .243 and had a .305 on-base percentage.

On Saturday, Toronto designated infielder Jayson Nix for assignment, and recalled Mike McCoy from Las Vegas.

By designating Rivera and Nix for assignment, the Blue Jays now have 10 days to trade them, send them to the minors, or release them.
