TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays sent right-hander Edgar Gonzalez to triple-A Buffalo on Friday to make room on the 25-man roster for outfielder Casper Wells.

Wells was claimed on waivers from the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday and expected to report to the club in Kansas City before Friday night's game against the Royals. In 93 games for the Mariners last season, Wells had a .228 batting average with 10 homers and 36 RBI.

To make room on the 40-man roster, right-hander Alex Burnett was designated for assignment. He was claimed on outright waivers Friday by the Orioles.
