|Hoffpauir called up to majors|
A day after manager Cito Gaston said he didn't believe any position players would be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas, utility player Jarrett Hoffpauir of Vidalia arrived in Toronto's visiting clubhouse at Yankee Stadium on Sunday.
"My goal was to be here in September," Hoffpauir said. "I just want to stick around and hope for another opportunity. The main thing is just being here."
Hoffpauir hit .295 at Las Vegas with 16 home runs, scoring 73 runs. He was 0-2 Wednesday night for the Blue Jays, playing third base.
Hoffpauir was recalled along with relievers Josh Roenicke and Rommie Lewis from Las Vegas, which is finishing up its season on Monday.
Gaston said the move to bring in an additional position player was partly out of desperation, with outfielder Fred Lewis and shortstop Yunel Escobar still banged up.
"I looked at our situation that we have here, and the first game I had no players — I couldn't do anything," Gaston said. "I could, but then you take the chance of having to put one of your pitchers in the outfield. Now I got someone who can play the outfield, so I'm OK."
Hoffpauir started nine games at third base for Toronto in late June, hitting .214 with one run scored. He batted .295 with 16 home runs and 73 RBIs for Las Vegas this season. Roenicke was 9-1 with a 3.64 ERA in 36 appearances, while Lewis was 1-5 with a 7.59 ERA and five saves in Triple-A this season.
Escobar remains out of the lineup for the seventh consecutive game with a stiff back. Gaston said the Jays' starting shortstop is still day-to-day. "Until he tells me he can play, I can't play him," Gaston said. "Back's still bothering him, yeah." Lewis also was out of the lineup for the third straight game with a sprained right elbow. He's available for pinch-running, but not pinch-hitting."
