Blue Jays claim Bocock off waivers

Blue Jays claim Bocock off waivers

The Blue Jays claimed shortstop Brian Bocock off waivers from the Giants on Thursday.

Bocock was designated for assignment by San Francisco recently to make room on the 40-man roster for the Juan Uribe signing.

The 24-year-old Bocock split the 2009 season between Class A San Jose and Double-A Connecticut, batting .230 with three homers, 51 RBIs and 26 doubles. Bocock got his only playing time at the Major League level in '08, when he made the Giants' Opening Day roster. That year, Bocock appeared in 32 games, batting .143 (11-for-77).

The right-handed-hitting Bocock, who also has experience at second base, was a ninth-round pick by the Giants in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft and has compiled a .229 batting average in his four Minor League seasons.
