The Toronto Blue Jays have promoted outfielder Ben Revere to the Triple-A Buffalo Bisons.

Revere was signed to a minor-league deal by the Jays on April 27.

The 31-year-old is in his second stint in the Blue Jays organization, having spent part of the 2015 season with the team after a July 31 trade with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Revere appeared in 56 games for the Jays and hit .319 with a home run and 19 RBIs during the regular season.  He also played in 11 playoffs games and posted a .314 average as the Jays were eventually eliminated in the ALCS by the Kansas City Royals.

He spent last season with the Los Angeles Angels and hit .275 in 109 games.  Revere has also appeared for the Minnesota Twins and Washington Nationals over the course of his eight-year MLB career.

Joining Revere in Buffalo will be Alen Hanson.

Designated for assignment last week by the Jays, the 26-year-old utilityman cleared waivers and will report to the Bisons.

Acquired from the San Francisco Giants as part of the Kevin Pillar trade, Hanson appeared in 18 games for the Jays, batting .163 with four RBIs.
