The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed right-hander Corey Wade and outfielder Scott Cousins off waivers from the New York Yankees and Miami Marlins, the Toronto Star reports:

The Toronto Blue Jays added two players off waivers Wednesday — outfielder Scott Cousins from the Miami Marlins and right-handed reliever Corey Wade from the New York Yankees.

The Yankees designated Wade for assignment earlier this month to make room on their 40-man roster for pitching prospect Dellin Betances.

Wade appeared in 39 games for the Yankees this season, posting an ERA of 6.46 over 39 innings. The 29-year-old also maintained an ERA of 2.27 over 17 appearances spanning 31 2/3 innings with the club’s Triple-A affiliate.

Wade owns a career minor league ERA of 4.04 over nine seasons. He’s made 161 major league appearances over four years, posting an ERA of 3.65 during his time in the bigs.

Cousins hit .163/.200/.267 over 86 at-bats for the Marlins in 2012. The 27-year-old spent a majority of the season playing for the team’s Triple-A club, hitting .296/.364/.459 with 13 doubles and seven home runs over 233 at-bats.
