The Toronto Blue Jays today announced that they have optioned INF LARS ANDERSON to the Buffalo Bisons.
Anderson, 25, played eight exhibition games with the Blue Jays this spring and hit .357 (5-14) with three doubles and three RBI. He also drew three walks for a .471 on-base percentage and a .571 slugging percentage.
