Transcript of Anthopoulos’ availability with the media

Here’s the full transcript of today’s availability with Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos. He attempts to explain the reasoning behind Steve Delabar’s demotion to the Minors, various injury updates, Draft news and a few questions about next month’s trade deadline:
