News: Thole was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo after the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Sportsnet's Shi Davidi reports.
Impact: With Dioner Navarro (hamstring) ready to return from the disabled list, the Jays got one last start out of Thole, who went 2-for-4 in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader. Thole doesn't figure to get another shot in the majors until September, unless Navarro or Russell Martin suffers an injury.
Rotowire: May 27 / 5:20a ET
News: Thole went 3-for-4 with three runs scored and a RBI in Tuesday's 10-9 win over the White Sox.
Impact: Thole more than doubled his hit total (from two to five) for the season on Tuesday and was an integral piece of why the Jays won. He really only plays when R.A. Dickey is on the mound, something that dates back to their time on the Mets together. He's still only hitting .227 on the season and his lack of regular playing time gives him limited fantasy value.
