TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays have selected the contracts of right-hander Bobby Korecky and Canadian right-hander Shawn Hill to the major-league roster and transferred left-hander J.A. Happ to the 60-day disabled list.

Hill started 15 games for triple-A Las Vegas this season, posting a record of 9-2 with a 4.52 earned-run average.

In parts of six seasons in the majors, the six-foot-two, 225-pound right-hander from Georgetown, Ont., has a 9-18 record with a 4.74 ERA in 44 starts with Montreal (2004), Washington (2006-2008), San Diego (2009) and Toronto (2010).

He also started in Canada's 11-1 win over Great Britain last week in the World Baseball Classic qualifying tournament.

Korecky appeared in 42 games for Las Vegas with two starts, posting a 3-4 record with a 3.44 ERA. The five-foot-11, 185-pound right-hander has appeared in 21 major-league games posting a 2-0 record with a 6.85 ERA.

Both players are expected to be with the Jays for a twilight double-header against Baltimore later Monday.

To make room on the 40-man expanded roster, the Jays moved Happ from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day list. He is out for the season with a fractured right foot.
