Jenkins was outrighted to Triple-A on Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. Jenkins cleared waivers after being DFA'd last Saturday. It's likely he will begin the 2016 season at Triple-A Buffalo.
Jenkins was designated for assignment Saturday to make room on the 40-man roster for Gavin Floyd, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportnet reports. Jenkins had been a steady performer out of the bullpen before 2015, averaging a 3.25 ERA and 32.1 innings per year in the three seasons prior. However, a brutal spring and mediocre results last season made the out-of-options reliever expendable. If he manages to clear waivers, he'll likely go back to Triple-A Buffalo.
