The Blue Jays continue to be one of baseball's most active teams on the waiver wire, claiming infielder Mauro Gomez from the Red Sox on Monday, according to a press release. Right-hander Dave Bush was designated for assignment to clear room on the 40-man roster.
Gomez, 28, was designated for assignment before opening day to clear a spot for Jackie Bradley Jr., a top outfield prospect who played his way onto the Red Sox in spring training. Gomez hit a solid .275/.324/.422 with two homers in 37 games for the Red Sox last summer. He is a first and third baseman.
Bush, 33, was recalled by the Blue Jays just a few days ago. He allowed five runs on four homers in three innings of relief against Boston on Sunday.
