Igarashi joins Blue Jays in trade with Bucs
DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Toronto acquired Japanese right-hander Ryota Igarashi from the Pirates on Friday afternoon in exchange for future cash considerations.

Igarashi spent the 2011 season with the New York Mets and posted a 4.66 ERA in 38 2/3 innings at the big league level. He is expected to provide depth to the bullpen in Triple-A Las Vegas.

The 32-year-old Igarashi split last season between the Major Leagues and Minors. With Triple-A Buffalo, he allowed just three earned runs in 21 games.

Igarashi is 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds. His professional career in North America began in 2010, when he signed with St. Louis.
