Munenori Kawasaki TOR 7/12                    

Was optioned back to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday. From MLB.com's Derek Wetmore:

"Just like last time, tough to send him down. He had options," Gibbons said, explaining the rationale of the move. "Like I said last time, he'll be back sometime. He was gone two days last time, so you never know. But he did a tremendous job for us last time, he really did. It's a big loss."

... Kawasaki joked to a reporter that he may play outfield in the Minors to increase his versatility and his value to the team.
