After just over a month in the Toronto Blue Jay’s farm system after being acquired as part of the Marcus Stroman trade, former UConn ace Anthony Kay has been called up to the MLB as a September call up.
The 24-year old Kay will be joined on the roster by right-handed pitcher T.J. Zeuch, according to reports. The move has not yet been officially announced by the club, likely because a transaction will need to occur to free up 40-man roster spots for Kay and Zeuch.

Kay saw action in Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, giving up nine runs and seven hits in 2.2 innings. Depending on rest, he could toe the rubber for his major league debut this weekend against the Tampa Bay Rays. Since being acquired by the Blue Jays, Kay posted a 2.50 ERA in 36 innings with Buffalo.
