Toronto Claims Wilfredo Ledezma
The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed relief pitcher Wilfredo Ledezma off of waivers, according to Jennifer Langosch. Ledezma was designated for assignment last week to clear space for Aaron Thompson, who the Pirates claimed off of waivers from the Washington Nationals. The Pirates and Ledezma agreed to a split contract early in the off-season, paying him $700,000 at the major league level, or $300,000 in the minors. Toronto will pick up the entire amount of that contract.
