ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays have opted for eight relief pitchers on their AL Division Series roster.
Toronto made room for extra relief on the 25-man active roster by making outfielder Dalton Pompey and infielder Ryan Goins inactive for the series against the Texas Rangers that begins Thursday. Marco Estrada starts for the Blue Jays.
R.A. Dickey, the 41-year-old Toronto knuckleballer who began his career in Texas, was left off the playoff roster.
