The Blue Jays have outrighted right-hander Robert Coello off their 40-man roster.
Prior to being outrighted, Coello was activated from the team’s 60-day disabled list. He was placed on the 15-day DL at the end of June with elbow inflammation and ultimately missed the remainder of the season.
Coello signed with the Blue Jays as a free agent last winter. The 27-year-old appeared in six games for the club this season, allowing nine runs on 10 hits and four walks with 11 strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings.
Coello spent a majority of the season with Toronto’s Triple-A affiliate. Over 19 appearances, including three starts, spanning 42 innings the right-hander maintained an ERA of 3.00 with 9.2 strikeouts per nine innings and 3.9 walks per nine innings.
Having spent fives seasons pitching in the minors for the Los Angeles Angels, Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs and Blue Jays, as well as one year in the Independent League, Coello has a career ERA of 3.33.
