Blue Jays claim Mauro Gomez off waivers from Red Sox
The Blue Jays have claimed infielder Mauro Gomez off waivers from the Red Sox.
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.
