ANAHEIM, California - The Blue Jays demoted one pitcher and recalled another in the aftermath of Friday's 7-5 loss to the Angels.

Right-hander Todd Redmond was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo. Right-hander Brad Lincoln, a reliever, has been recalled from the Bisons.

Redmond, 28, started and went 3 2/3 innings on Friday. He did not factor in to the decision. In eight appearances, five starts, for the Blue Jays, Redmond posted a record of 1-1 with a 4.22 ERA.

Lincoln, 28, returns for the first time since being demoted on June 9. In 13 appearances this season, all in relief, he has an ERA of 4.15.

Toronto's bullpen leads the major leagues with 385 1/3 innings pitched. In the first two games of the current series in Anaheim, Blue Jays' relievers have combined to throw 10 innings. Juan Perez, Aaron Loup and Steve Delabar have racked up high pitch counts in the last two days, leaving manager John Gibbons with few options.

The Blue Jays will play Saturday's game against the Angels with a nine-man bullpen, almost unheard of in baseball.
