Trent Thornton Assigned to Buffalo
According to the official MiLB transactions page for the Triple-A International League, right-handed pitcher Trent Thornton, who was recently acquired by the Blue Jays from the Houston Astros in exchange for Aledmys Diaz, has been assigned to Triple-A Buffalo.

Drury Changes Representation
Drury, 26, has 315 major league games under his belt in parts of four seasons with the Jays, Yankees, and Diamondbacks. Most recently, he slashed .154/.241/.231 in eight games with two and four hits. He played primarily third base in limited action after being traded to Toronto.
