The Blue Jays have claimed first baseman/outfielder Danny Dorn off waivers from the Diamondbacks, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports on Twitter. He’ll be optioned to Triple-A, per the report.
Dorn is in a somewhat unusual situation for a claimed player. After spending parts of seven seasons at the Triple-A level, the 31-year-old only saw his first chance at the big leagues this year. But his short stint with Arizona was short and unproductive.
That being said, Dorn has produced strong power and on-base numbers over his minor league career. And he is destroying the Triple-A level this year, with 305 plate appearances of .386/.444/.618 hitting.
Didn’t Dorn play 3b for the Indians in the movie major league?
Basically a left-handed Chris Colabello? Not a bad claim. Maybe call him up for September to pinch hit given their very righty-heavy line up?
basically colabello jr. i guess this is the last piece for the world series title
Danny Dork is nothing more than AAA surplus…he will never excel at the MLB level.
