Jova Activated; Davenport Sent to Dunedin

The Toronto Blue Jays removed outfielder Maikel Jova from the inactive list and transferred outfielder Ron Davenport to Single-A Dunedin. Jova has been on the inactive list for New Hampshire and Dunedin for the entire season. Meanwhile Davenport is being sent to Dunedin to work out his kinks at the plate.

The 24-year-old Davenport is stuck in an 0-for-27 slump, although most of those outs of been hit hard. Davenport spent all of the 2005 season with New Hampshire and hit .270 with 10 home runs and 38 RBI in 95 games. His 0-for-27 slump is one shy of tying the Fisher Cats franchise record for consecutive hitless at bats, set by Aaron Hill in 2004.

The 25-year-old Jova is the Fisher Cats all-time leader in games played (219), hits (228), RBI (95), and doubles (48). He spent the entire year with the Fisher Cats in both 2004 and 2005. Originally signed as a non-drafted free agent by the Blue Jays on August 21, 1999, Jova hit .277 with 10 HR and 63 RBI as a member of the Fisher Cats 2004 Championship team. Last season he hit .258 with 3 HR and 32 RBI. He has not yet played a game in 2006.
