Guerrero Jr./Anderson

Blue Jay Vlad Guerrero Jr. broke out with two home runs against the Giants on Tuesday, and had six hits in a stretch of 10 at-bats before going 0-for-3 in Wednesday’s loss in San Francisco … White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson hit two home runs in a three-game series against the Jays at the Rogers Centre last weekend and is batting .320 with eight homers, 24 RBIs and 13 steals for the season.


The Jays optioned left-hander Thomas Pannone to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday to make room for starter Edwin Jackson on the 25-man roster. Righty Matt Shoemaker (ACL tear) was moved to the 60-day injured list … The Jays had hoped lefty Clayton Richard (right knee) would be ready to fill a hole in the rotation on Saturday, but they might go with a bullpen game for the second time in a week … Outfielder Eloy Jimenez (ankle), the White Sox’s top prospect, started a Triple-A rehab assignment on Monday and could be back in the big leagues by the end of this series … The Jays claimed 27-year-old right-hander Jimmy Cordero off waivers from the Washington Nationals and optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo.


Home to the Boston Red Sox for four games, starting Monday.
