The Blue Jays designated lefty Trever Miller for assignment, according to a team press release. The Jays placed Jon Rauch on the DL and purchased the contracts of Wil Ledezma and Rommie Lewis in the series of moves, leaving their 40-man roster at 39. Dan Mennella examined the fantasy consequences of the Jays' roster moves at CloserNews earlier today.
Miller, 38, tossed only 3 2/3 innings since coming over from the Cardinals in the Colby Rasmus trade. On the season he has a 4.19 ERA, 5.1 K/9, 5.6 BB/9, 0.93 HR/9, and 38.8% groundball rate in 19 1/3 innings. He hasn't been able to shut down lefties since '09.
