Banda was traded from the Pirates to the Blue Jays for cash considerations Saturday.
Banda was designated for assignment by Pittsburgh on Monday, but he'll land a spot on the Blue Jays' 40-man roster.

Pirates' Anthony Banda: Cast off 40-man roster

Pirates' Anthony Banda: Joins Bucs
The Pirates claimed Banda off waivers from the Mets on Monday.
Banda doesn't have any minor-league options remaining, so Pittsburgh will need to clear a spot for him on the 26-man active roster ahead of Monday's series opener in Milwaukee. The 27-year-old lefty has made five career big-league starts, but he's worked in long relief over his five appearances with the Mets in 2021, giving up six runs on 14 hits and a walk over 7.1 innings. Pittsburgh will likely plug Banda into the bullpen initially, but he could emerge as a rotation option if the Pirates' starting depth is tested over the final two months of the season....

Mets' Anthony Banda: Credited with first win
Banda (1-0) gave up two unearned runs on four hits over 1.1 innings of relief Monday, blowing the save but recording the win in a 15-11 extra-innings victory over the Reds.
Added to the roster Monday, Banda was called into action immediately after Edwin Diaz blew the save in the ninth inning, but the southpaw allowed Cincy's phantom runner to score in both the 10th and 11th. Given his career 5.81 ERA in the majors, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Banda shuffled back to Triple-A to make room for a fresh bullpen arm, but if he does stick around, he'll likely remain in a long-relief role....

Mets' Anthony Banda: Joins big-league bullpen
Banda was called up by the Mets on Monday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
