Blue Jays option three pitchers to Buffalo

Niagara Gazette — The Buffalo Bisons’ 2014 roster continues to take shape with the Toronto Blue Jays optioning three pitchers to the Herd on Sunday.

Heading to the Bisons are left-handed pitcher Sean Nolin and right-handed hurlers Kyle Drabek and Chad Jenkins.

Nolin went 1-1 with Buffalo in three starts last season, after spending most of 2013 with Class AA New Hampshire and manager Gary Allenson, who was promoted to the Bisons in the off-season. In his three games, Nolin posted a 1.53 ERA, striking out 13 batters in 17 innings. His first Triple-A win came on August 24 against Lehigh Valley. He also appeared in one game for the Blue Jays last season, taking the loss on May 24 against Baltimore.

Drabek worked his way through the Jays’ minor league system after missing 2012 due to Tommy John surgery. He was promoted to Buffalo in mid-August and went 1-2 with a 3.77 ERA in four games. He also made three relief appearances for the Blue Jays, allowing two runs in two innings pitched while striking out three.

Jenkins, Toronto’s first-round draft selection in 2009, began last season with New Hampshire but made five starts with the Bisons in June, going 0-3 with a 7.48 ERA. He also made three starts in ten appearances for Toronto.
