The Blue Jays announced that they designated Tyson Brummett for assignment five days after claiming the right-hander off of waivers from the Phillies. The move creates 40-man roster space for another waiver claim, former Phillies right-hander David Herndon.
Brummett made his MLB debut earlier this month, getting two strikeouts against the Nationals. The 28-year-old spent most of the season in the upper minors, posting a 3.20 ERA with 8.3 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 in 90 innings. He started eight games and pitched out of the bullpen in 36 others this year, pitching at Double-A and Triple-A.
