Dull signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Saturday, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports. Dull was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays in October, but he'll return to the organization after posting a 12.79 ERA over 12.2 innings with the Yankees, Athletics and Blue Jays last season. The right-hander appeared in major-league camp during spring training. However, the 30-year-old will likely begin the season in the minors after he struggled to limit production in 2019.
Dull was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday. The 30-year-old has now been designated for assignment five times since the beginning of August, twice by Toronto. It's unclear whether a team will take a chance on Dull after he posted a 12.79 ERA with a 15:7 K:BB in 12.2 major-league innings in 2019. Right-hander Anthony Bass was claimed by the Blue Jays in a corresponding move.
Dull's contract was selected by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Dull had been designated for assignment on Friday but is back with the team after Lourdes Gurriel's appendicitis opened up a spot on the 40-man roster. With a 13.50 ERA and a 274 WHIP in 11.1 innings this season, Dull will likely be stuck in a low-leverage role over the final few games of the season.
Dull will report to Triple-A Buffalo after clearing waivers, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports. Dull has allowed 17 runs on 24 hits -- including four home runs -- in 11.1 big-league innings this season, posting a 12:7 K:BB along the way. He'll remain in Toronto's organization after passing through waivers untouched.
Dull was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday. This marks the fourth time Dull has been designated for assignment -- all by different teams -- since the start of August. As such, it remains to be seen what his next step will be.
