TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays have promoted right-handed pitcher Sam Dyson to the big leagues.

The Blue Jays announced Thursday that the club selected Dyson's contract from the double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats. The Jays also optioned Canadian right-hander Scott Richmond to triple-A Las Vegas to make room for Dyson.

Dyson, 24, started the 2012 season with class-A Dunedin, where he was 2-0 in six starts with a 4.08 earned-run average. Since joining New Hampshire the six-foot-two, 205-pounder has posted a 0.75 ERA in 15 relief appearances with three saves.

The Tampa, Fla., native has a combined record of 2-0 with three saves and a 2.56 ERA with 13 walks and 24 strikeouts in 52 2/3 innings.

Dyson was selected by the Blue Jays in the fourth round of the 2010 first-year player draft out of the University of Carolina. He then missed the 2011 season recovering from Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.
