The Toronto Blue Jays sent reliever Steve Delabar to triple-A on Tuesday while officially recalling infielder Munenori Kawasaki.

The move comes one year after Delabar was voted to the American League all-star team in a fan vote. In 29 appearances this season Delabar is 3-0 with a WHIP of 1.36 and an ERA of 4.68.

The 30-year-old was 5-5 last season in 55 games with one save and his ERA was more than a run lower at 3.22.

Delabar was acquired from the Seattle Mariners in July, 2012 in exchange for outfielder Eric Thames.

Kawasaki, 33, has spent the majority of the season with the triple-A Bisons, where he is hitting .276 with nine runs batted in in 44 games.
