KANSAS CITY, Mo. Randy Moss Vikings Jersey . -- The Blue Jays recalled outfielder Anthony Gose and selected the contract of infielder Steve Tolleson from Triple-A Buffalo in an attempt to jumpstart their struggling offence before Thursday nights series finale in Kansas City. To clear roster space, Toronto optioned infielder Jonathan Diaz to Buffalo and designated outfielder Moises Sierra for assignment. "Just looking to beef up the offence a little bit, and add a little team speed, something we dont have a lot of," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. The 23-year-old Gose was in the starting lineup Thursday night, batting ninth and playing left field in place of Melky Cabrera, who left Wednesday nights game when he was hit by a pitch. Cabrera walked through the clubhouse with his bruised left shin tightly wrapped but without a noticeable limp, and Gibbons said its possible he could pinch hit against the Royals. Gibbons also said its possible he could play Friday night when Toronto opens a series in Pittsburgh. "Hes doing better," Gibbons said. "He got hit pretty good, but theres no crack (in the bone) or anything like that. He just got hit square." Gose has spent parts of three seasons with the Blue Jays, hitting .238 with three homers and 23 RBIs in 109 games. Hes known for his speed but also his strikeout rate, and Gibbons said Gose must get that under control if hes going to stick as the clubs fourth outfielder. "When it comes down to the big leagues, its about production," Gibbons said. "Thats why its so hard to make the big leagues for any length of time. Guys go up and down." Tolleson, who was hitting .236 in 19 games for Buffalo, provides some versatility with the Blue Jays heading into interleague play. He has played in both the infield and outfield, though Gibbons said its likely he will platoon with Chris Getz at second base. "Maybe get a little more offence out of that spot," Gibbons said. "Hope he does something."

SEATTLE -- It wasnt lost on Chris Nelson that Felix Hernandez was the one he took deep to provide the Los Angeles Angels all their offence. "It was huge because you know he is not going to give up a lot. History just tells us were not going to score a bunch of runs," Nelson said. Nelson hit a two-run homer off Hernandez and the Angels ruined Eric Wedges return to the dugout with a 2-0 victory over the Mariners on Friday night. Wedge managed the Mariners for the first time since he had a mild stroke a month ago. He acknowledged being anxious about getting back on the bench and called his ailment "a heads up." Then Wedge watched his offence be unable to solve Garrett Richards (4-5) and a pair of relievers who combined on a five-hitter for the Angels. "As the game wore on I felt more and more comfortable and then by the end of the game I felt like I was right there," Wedge said. "I wasnt sure how the energy was going to be, but my energy was good and the focus was good. Just didnt have a whole hell of a lot of action tonight." Nelson snapped an 0-for-17 slide when he connected in the second for his third homer. Josh Hamilton scored on Nelsons long ball after leading off the inning with a single, and it was the only time Hernandez (12-7) was touched all night. The biggest problem for Hernandez was the gem Richards was tossing on the other side. "Richards throw an unbelievable game, so you got to give credit to that," Hernandez said. Richards (4-5) struck out four and walked two in 7 1-3 innings, but was forced out of the game after taking a liner off his right forearm. The right-hander had thrown just 89 pitches and was in line for a career performance before leaving. Dustin Ackley led off the eighth with a shot back to the mound that caught Richards and deflected to shortstop Erick Aybar, who threw to first for the out. Manager Mike Scioscia immediately went to the mound and Richards was replaced by Dane De La Rosa. The Angels said Richards had a forearm contusion. De La Rosa finished off the eighth and Ernesto Frieri pitched the ninth for his 27th save. Richards said the ball only grazed him, avoided his elbow and he should be fine to make his next start. "I didnt have my sharpest stuff inn the beginning and as the game went on I got a feel for the breaking ball and the extension on my fastball," Richards said. Mike Hughes Vikings Jersey. "I was just filling up the zone and throwing quality strikes and going right at guys." Wedges month off was filled with doctors appointments and meetings, researching and relaxing, with the goal of figuring out why he had suffered a stroke at 45 years old and how to prevent it from happening again. "Its a shot across the bow, its a mulligan, its a heads up," Wedge said before the game. "And Im taking it as such." Hernandez was handed consecutive losses for the third time this season, even though he was cruising in his final innings. But a taxing fourth inning where he had to throw 29 pitches and left runners stranded on the corners ended up equaling an early exit. Hernandez struck out Grant Green to end the threat in the fourth, and then struck out four of the final six batters he faced. He recorded 10 strikeouts for the 25th time in his career and the fourth time this season. Seattle finally got multiple runners on base in the same inning when Brad Miller led off the sixth with a single and Kyle Seager walked on a 3-2 pitch with one out. Richards quickly defused the threat, getting Kendrys Morales to ground into a double play. He also got Endy Chavez to ground into a double play to end the seventh after Justin Smoak singled. "He was not ahead of hitters tonight -- his first-ball strike ratio was not good -- but his stuff played," Scioscia said. "He got back into counts, got some outs when he had to, got some double play balls. He had good stuff, I just dont know if his command was as crisp tonight." NOTES: Minor leaguer D.J. Peterson, Seattles first-round pick in the June draft, underwent surgery in Iowa to repair a broken jaw after he was hit in the face by a pitch on Thursday night. Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik said Peterson might need a second surgery to fully repair the injury. ...
