Valera was claimed off waivers by the Padres on Wednesday.

Valera was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays over the weekend, but he'll now receive a fresh start with the Padres. The 28-year-old slashed .234/.308/.383 with one home run in 52 plate appearances between the Blue Jays and Yankees last season, and he should serve as infield depth for San Diego if he secures a roster spot.
