      Blue Jays' Junior Lake: Claimed by Blue Jays

      Lake was claimed by the Blue Jays on Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. Lake was DFA'd by the Orioles a week ago after splitting time between Triple-A and Baltimore over the final few months of the season. The outfielder will likely begin the season in Triple-A for the Jays organization, and he's unlikely to make a significant impact at the major league level in 2016.

He rode the shuttle between Triple-A and Baltimore over the final couple months after the Cubs cut bait, logging all of 22 plate appearances in three separate stints with the big club. Given his contact woes and struggles against same-handed pitching, Lake seems likely to receive limited opportunities again wherever he lands next.
