Jays recall Alford, place Ceciliani on DL
BALTIMORE — The Toronto Blue Jays placed outfielder Darrell Ceciliani on the 10day disabled list with a left shoulder injury and recalled outfielder Anthony Alford from double-A New Hampshire.
The moves were announced Friday afternoon, a few hours before the opener of a weekend series against the Baltimore Orioles. Ceciliani, who had been recalled from triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, suffered the injury in the Blue Jays’ 9-0 victory in Atlanta on Thursday night.
Alford, one of Toronto’s top prospects, was hitting .325 with three homers and 11 RBIs this season for the Fisher Cats.
