Blue Jays Designate Aaron Laffey For Assignment

The Blue Jays have designated left-hander Aaron Laffey for assignment, MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reports (Twitter link).  The Jays will add another pitcher to their roster in Laffey's place.

Laffey is the latest waiver wire pickup to make a brief cameo with Toronto this season.  The southpaw was designated for assignment by the Mets on Sunday, picked up by the Jays on Tuesday and received a spot start tonight for the club against the Yankees in place of the injured Josh Johnson.  Laffey didn't fare well against the Yankees, allowing two runs on two hits and five walks over just 2 2/3 innings.  His short outing may have sealed his fate, as the Jays are in need of a fresh arm to help their overworked bullpen.

Laffey, 28, now has a 6.75 ERA in 12 2/3 IP with the Jays and Mets this season.  He posted a 4.56 ERA over 100 2/3 innings with Toronto in 2012 and has also pitched for the Yankees, Mariners and Indians over his seven-year Major League career.
