  • 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 evidently feel as though he's worth protecting from the Rule 5 draft. The 23-year-old prospect figures to start the 2019 campaign at Double-A New Hampshire.

  • Blue Jays' Yangervis Solarte: Has 2019 option declined

    The Blue Jays declined Solarte's 2019 club option Wednesday.

The Blue Jays will now have until Nov. 30 to either tender Solarte a contract, trade him, or cut him loose. The 31-year-old hit just .226/.277/.378 with 17 homers in 122 games in 2018.
