Toronto Claims Wilfredo Ledezma

Toronto claimed Ledezma off of waivers.

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.

Tim started Pirates Prospects in 2009 from his home in Virginia, which was 40 minutes from where Pedro Alvarez made his pro debut in Lynchburg. That year, the Lynchburg Hillcats won the Carolina League championship, and Pirates Prospects was born from Tim's reporting along the way. The site has grown over the years to include many more writers, and Tim has gone on to become a credentialed MLB reporter, producing Pirates Prospects each year, and will publish his 11th Prospect Guide this offseason. He has also served as the Pittsburgh Pirates correspondent for Baseball America since 2019. Behind the scenes, Tim is an avid music lover, and most of the money he gets paid to run this site goes to vinyl records.
