The Toronto Blue Jays have sent lefthander Rob Rasmussen back to Triple-A Buffalo to make room for newly-acquired infielder Danny Valencia.
Valencia was picked up from the Kansas City Royals on Monday for right-handed pitcher Liam Hendriks and catcher Erik Kratz.
In 10 appearances this season, the 25-year-old Rasmussen has given up eight hits and four earned runs in 11.1 innings with 13 strikeouts.
