A 14th Canadian to Play for the Blue Jays


The Toronto Blue Jays just recalled Canadian pitcher Scott Richmond from triple-A Syracuse.  Richmond, 28, of North Vancouver, B.C., has made five starts for the Syracuse Chiefs, posting a 0-2 record with a 2.53 ERA. He has limited opponents to a .210 batting average, while walking only six and striking out 31 in 35 innings.

He will become the 14th Canadian to play for the Blue Jays.  Here are the first 13.
