The Toronto Blue Jays optioned infielder Santiago Espinal and right-hander Jacob Waguespack on Thursday and added them to the team’s taxi squad.

Major League Baseball teams had a noon Eastern Time deadline to trim 30-man active rosters to 28 players.

Teams can now carry a maximum of five players on the taxi squad for road trips this season. The Blue Jays currently have four players on the list, with Espinal and Waguespack joining catcher Caleb Joseph and right-hander Sam Gaviglio.

The moves leave Toronto with 14 pitchers, two catchers, seven infielders and five outfielders on the active roster ahead of Thursday night’s game in Atlanta.

The Blue Jays will continue their road trip with a three-game weekend series at Boston before making their Buffalo home debut on Tuesday against Miami.
