While it's likely the promotion is a temporary one, Alford's trip to the big leagues comes after a combination of insults and injuries to Toronto's outfield corps.

Looking beyond Friday's contest, a platoon situation with Ezequiel Carrera in left field could be the best way to give Alford frequent time - although Pillar will return from his suspension soon.

Alford was almost called up for Thursday's contest, but he'll instead wait one extra day to replace injured outfielder Darrell Ceciliani (shoulder), who injured himself hitting a home run Thursday.

Alford was batting.325 with a.394 wOBA, three home runs, and nine stolen bases in 141 plate appearances for New Hampshire this season. Ceciliani had been called up from Triple-A Buffalo only days earlier to replace 2013 Fisher Cat alumnus Kevin Pillar, who had been suspended by Toronto for two days due to an anti-gay slur.

Of course, it's not clear that Alford's promotion will be long-term in nature.

The 22-year-old was initially selected in the third round of the 2012 draft by the Blue Jays, who signed him for a creative $750,000 deal that allowed him to play football for University of MS during the off-season. During the 2015 season, he slashed an impressive.298/.398/.421 in Single-A before slumping to a.236/.344/.378 line in an injury-ravaged 2016 campaign.
