The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed catcher Bobby Wilson off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels, reports Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com:

To make room on their 40-man roster for Wilson, the Blue Jays designated right-hander Chad Beck for assignment.

Wilson hit .211/.277/.292 with five doubles and three home runs over 171 at-bats for the Angels this season. He’s averaged over 100 at-bats per season for Los Angeles over the past three years, during which time he’s hit at a combined clip of .209/.272/.323.

The 29-year-old was selected in the 48th round of the 2002 MLB Draft by the Angels. Over nine seasons in the minors, he hit .284/.339/.423, including a line of .291/.348/.428 over five years and 759 at-bats at the Triple-A level.

Prior to the move the Blue Jays had catchers J.P. Arencibia and Jeff Mathis on their 40-man roster. Wilson is arbitration eligible for the first time this winter.
