BLUE JAYS PURCHASE DOMINIQUE'S CONTRACT

May 8, 2005

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed catcher Gregg Zaun on the 15-day disabled list and have purchased the contract of catcher Andy Dominique from Syracuse of the International League (AAA).

Zaun, 34, suffered a concussion in Sunday’s game against the Chicago White Sox while sliding into second base attempting to break up a double play.

In 28 games this season the 5-10, 190lb. switch-hitter is batting .275 with seven doubles, three homeruns and 20 RBI. Zaun will be re-evaluated tomorrow prior to his release from Mt. Sinai Hospital in Toronto. A timetable for his return has not been set.

Dominique, 29, has appeared in 20 games for the SkyChiefs this season batting .169 with a double, a home run and five RBI. The 6-0, 220lb. right-handed hitter has appeared in seven Major League games, all with the 2004 Boston Red Sox where he hit .182 with an RBI in 11 at bats.

Dominique, a native to Tarzana California, was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 26th round of the 1997 First Year Player Draft.
