Blue Jays claim Mastroianni, send OF to Triple-A

TORONTO -- The Blue Jays have claimed outfielder Darin Mastroianni off waivers from the Minnesota Twins and optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo. To make room on the 40-man roster, outfielder Kenny Wilson has been designated for assignment.

Mastroianni has appeared in seven games for the Twins this season, going 0-for-11. The former 16th-round Draft pick of the Blue Jays in 2007 has spent parts of four seasons in the Majors, posting a .220 average with three home runs, 22 RBIs and 24 stolen bases in 115 games.

"He's a good, tough ballplayer. He can really run, he can play anywhere in the outfield," said manager John Gibbons.

Wilson, 24, is batting .210 with one home run and eight RBIs for Double-A New Hampshire in 2014. The 2008 second-round pick is in his seventh Minor League season.
