Bergen was optioned to the Blue Jays' taxi squad Thursday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

The 27-year-old southpaw put together an excellent spring with an 11:2 K:BB over 5.2 innings, but it wasn't good enough to earn a spot on the 26-man roster out of the gate. Bergen would likely get the call should anything happen to bullpen lefties Ryan Borucki or Tim Mayza.
