Blue Jays Designate Ryota Igarashi For Assignment

The Blue Jays have designated right-hander Ryota Igarashi for assignment according to the team via Twitter. The move, along with the optioning of Yan Gomes, allowed for the team to recall right-hander Chad Beck and select the contract of right-hander Jesse Chavez from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Igarashi, 33, signed with the Pirates during the offseason, but was traded to the Blue Jays at the end of Spring Training when it became clear that he wouldn't make the Opening Day roster. Igarashi struggled in two appearances with the Blue Jays, allowing four earned runs in one inning of work. He allowed two baserunners to reach in the 13th inning of Saturday's game, when the Rangers walked off against Toronto.
