Roberto Alomar's induction into the Hall of Fame on Wednesday didn't mean a full day of rest for the Blue Jays' front office.

The team announced in the afternoon that it had claimed left-handed reliever Wil Ledezma off waivers from the Pirates. The Venezuela native struggled in the Majors this past season, going 0-3 with a 6.86 ERA in 27 appearances for Pittsburgh, but did do well at Triple-A Indianapolis, where he posted a 0.94 ERA in 35 appearances.

Ledezma, who also pitched in the Venezuelan Winter League this offseason, hasn't played in the American League since 2007, but he spent the first four-plus years of his career in the AL with the Tigers.

Ledezma, who turns 30 later this month, is 15-25 with a 5.26 ERA in 187 career appearances, 40 of them starts.
