Blue Jays claim Scott Maine off waivers from Indians

Jason Miller

Maine is the sixth player Toronto has added from the waiver wire in the last month.

The Toronto Blue Jays continued their recent flurry of activity on the waiver wire Wednesday, claiming left-hander Scott Maine from the Cleveland Indians, reports Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com:

The Blue Jays continued their busy month of October on the waiver wire by claiming left-hander Scott Maine from Cleveland on Wednesday afternoon…

The Blue Jays have now made six claims this month, with the main goal of acquiring some players through waivers in order to build depth at the Minor League level.

Maine, 27, appeared in thirty games for the Cubs and Indians in 2012, amassing an unsightly 6.07 ERA in twenty-six and two-thirds innings. The left-hander put up much better numbers in thirty-six and a third innings at Triple-A, finishing his season there with a 2.72 ERA.

In order to make room on the 40-man roster for Maine, the Blue Jays designated outfielder Scott Cousins and right-hander David Herndon for assignment. Both Cousins and Herndon were picked up on waivers last month.
