Jays Acquire Kevin Mench, Brad Wilkerson

3:03pm: The Wilkerson signing is also official now.  Both are pretty much no-risk moves.

2:48pm: According to the Newberg Report mailing list, the Blue Jays have acquired outfielder Kevin Mench from the Rangers for cash considerations.

The Brad Wilkerson acquisition may still be in the works, but Mench is a better match as a lefty-masher.  He has a career line of .305/.361/.563 against them.  It’s only been 34 Triple A ABs but Mench is hitting .412/.500/.706 against southpaws this year.
