Ledezma claimed by Blue Jays
Left-hander Wil Ledezma has been claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays. The Pirates had designated Ledezma for assignment on Dec. 23 to make room for lefty Aaron Thompson.
In 27 relief appearances with Pittsburgh last year, Ledezma allowed 15 earned runs in 19 2/3 innings. He struck out 22 and walked six.
Ledezma, who was arbitration-eligible this offseason, had already agreed to a $700,000 contract earlier this winter.
