Blue Jays Release Brian Tallet

The Blue Jays have released left-hander Brian Tallet, according to their team transactions page.  Toronto designated Tallet for assignment on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after surrendering a walk-off win to the Orioles.

That outing against the O's was Tallet's only appearance for the Blue Jays in 2011 after coming over from the Cardinals.  The reliever was shelved with a broken left hand and then a right intercostal strain.  In nine big league seasons, Tallet owns a 4.79 ERA with 6.6 K/9 and 4.2 BB/9.

Tallet was a reasonably effective pitcher for a couple of years. Unfortunately those couple of years weren’t last year or this year.

The one and only reason Tallet was released was because of how he wears his hat……add a mustache, game over.

How long until the Orioles sign him? Orioles can’t seem to get enough mediocre former Blue Jays…
