Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Released again by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays released Saltalamacchia from his minor-league contract with Triple-A Buffalo on Friday.

Saltalamacchia joined the Bisons on a minor-league deal May 16, just 13 days after being released by the Jays following his .117 OPS and 16 strikeouts in 26 MLB plate appearances. The 32-year-old had a .162/.271/.243 slash line in 33 games with Buffalo. A veteran catcher might draw some appeal on the open market, but Saltalamacchia is no longer worth monitoring in fantasy circles.

Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Returns to Blue Jays on MiLB deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalamacchia signed a minor-league contract with the Blue Jays on Tuesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

After failing to garner any interest on the free market over the past couple weeks, Saltalamacchia will return to the team he began the season with. He only mustered one hit during his time in the big leagues, and given Toronto's choice to DFA earlier in the year, he'll likely serve as nothing more than an organizational depth piece with Triple-A Buffalo moving forward.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Cut loose by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalamacchia was released by the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Mike Wilner of the Blue Jays Radio Network reports.

"Salty" was designated for assignment Friday after producing just one hit in 26 plate appearances, and it appears the veteran opted to find work elsewhere rather than spend time in Toronto's minor-league ranks. His vast big-league experience could pose some intrigue on the open market, but Saltalamacchia will have a hard time finding anything better than backup duty until he begins to show signs of life at the plate again.

Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalamacchia was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Friday, John Lott of the Athletic reports.

The Blue Jays finally ran out of patience with Saltalamacchia, who has struggled mightily at the plate this season. After a disappointing 2016 in which he hit for a .171 batting average, the veteran catcher is slashing .040/.077/.040 in his 26 plate appearances so far in 2017.

Blue Jays' Jarrod Saltalamacchia: Developing chemistry with Marco Estrada
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saltalammachia received high praise from Saturday's batterymate, Marco Estrada, and the two have developed productive chemistry that could lead to more playing time for the catcher, Laura Armstrong of the Toronto Star reports.

Saltalamacchia, who signed with the Jays in the offseason, has started just two of the team's first 13 games while amassing a measly 10 at-bats. However, the door may be open to increased plate appearances after Estrada -- who struggled last time out -- pointed to the 31-year-old's influence as a key to the pitcher's seven scoreless innings. "It was the way Salty called the game. I was just trying to follow him, elevated a lot of fastballs and had them swinging at it," said the right-hander. As of now, Saltalamacchia is unworthy of a fantasy roster spot. But, if he settles in as Estrada's routine catcher, then the veteran could turn up as a decent punt play in daily leagues on occasion.
