  • Blue Jays' Mark Leiter: Removed from 40-man roster

  • Blue Jays' Oliver Drake: Scooped up by Blue Jays

    Drake was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Monday.

    Drake will rejoin the Blue Jays -- one of five teams he pitched for in 2018 -- after being designated for assignment by Tampa Bay last week. The veteran reliever compiled a 5.29 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 51:17 K:BB across 47.2 big-league frames in 2018. It wouldn't be surprising if the Blue Jays attempted to pass him through waivers before the start of the 2019 campaign.

  • Blue Jays' Yennsy Diaz: Selected to 40-man roster

    Diaz's contract was purchased by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Diaz was promoted to the 40-man roster in an effort to protect him from the impending Rule 5 draft. The 22-year-old prospect hasn't pitched above High-A in his brief four-year professional career but he's experienced success within the lower levels of Toronto's farm system (2.08 ERA over 47 frames with Low-A Lansing in 2018) and appears to possess good arm talent.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Contract selected

    Thornton's contract was purchased by Toronto on Tuesday.

    With the Rule 5 draft looming, Thornton was added to the 40-man roster to ensure protection. The 25-year-old prospect made 24 starts at Triple-A Fresno last year, posting a 4.42 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with a 122:31 K:BB over 124 frames. Thornton figures to have an opportunity to battle for a spot in the starting rotation during spring training given the Blue Jays' lack of pitching depth.

    Murphy was added to Toronto's 40-man roster Tuesday, Shi Davidi of reports.

    Murphy was named the Florida State League pitcher of the year in 2018, per Davidi, and the Blue Jays felt as though he was worth protecting from the Rule 5 draft. The 23-year-old prospect figures to start the 2019 campaign at Double-A New Hampshire.
