Blue Jays Designate David Pauley For Assignment

The Blue Jays have designated David Pauley for assignment to clear a roster spot for Drew Carpenter, according to Shi Davidi of (on Twitter).

Pauley, 29, was designated for assignment by the Angels on two different occasions earlier this year. The Jays picked him up off waivers on June 20, following his second DFA. The right-hander appeared in just four games for Toronto, allowing seven runs in 6 1/3 innings (three of those runs came over three innings in tonight's game).

The Blue Jays were Pauley's fifth Major League team. He's seen time with the Mariners, Red Sox, Tigers, and Angels as well, pitching to a 4.68 ERA in 209 2/3 career innings.

      totally, he should should go to the good available relievers store and pick up some righties.

      What free agent middle reliever would you like him to sign in the middle of the season then smart guy? Perhaps you should apply for the GM position since you have all the answers. In john12121212 we trust, right?

       I don’t think Darren Oliver, Luis Perez and Jason Frasor are that bad…nor Carlos Villanueva before he got moved to the rotation.

    less concerned with the bullpen and more concerned with romero.

    He will probably get picked up by the Yankees and dropped within a week.

    I was at the game tonight…. and let me say… I was ready to personally drag this guy off the field myself.

    He pitched better than Romero. Instead of DFA’ing him they should have made him a starter.

  10. lol its funny that people think they know whats best for the team…. 

  11. Jaysfan724 3 years ago

    lol what?  Oliver is a fail? Frasor is a fail? Santos can’t even be judged yet and we all know what Cordero does.  So essentially 1 out of 3 new guys who were on our opening day roster in the pen are “fail.”  Guess what kind of a guys come up when you have injuries…guys like David Pauley.  You don’t stock pile good bullpen help in AAA, that’s where cheap bummy guys like Scott Richmond rot for eternity waiting for the day when 3 starters drop in one week.  And when they don’t produce, you move on to the next victim.
