Additionally, infielder Maicer Izturis was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

In three starts for Toronto this season, Jenkins is 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA. The right-hander has a combined minor league record of 0-3 with a 4.54 ERA in 11 games (10 starts) while pitching for Buffalo, New Hampshire and the Gulf Coast Blue Jays.
