The Toronto Blue Jays acquired right-hander Sean O’Sullivan from the Kansas City Royals in exchange for cash considerations, reports Dick Kaegel of MLB.com.

The minor move is another transaction focused on adding depth to the Blue Jays pitching staff. Toronto claimed right-hander David Pauley from the Los Angeles Angels earlier this week.

The Blue Jays lost three of their starting pitchers to injury within the span of a few days recently, as Kyle Drabek, Brandon Morrow and Drew Hutchinson all landed on the team’s disabled list.

The Royals acquired O’Sullivan from the Angels during the summer of 2010 in the trade that sent Alberto Callaspo to LA. The 24-year-old right-hander went on to appear in 14 games for the Royals that season, including 13 starts, posting an ERA and WHIP of 6.11 and 1.557. O’Sullivan appeared in 12 games for Kansas City in 2011, maintaining an ERA and WHIP of 7.25 and 1.783.

This season O’Sullivan has pitched solely for the Royals Triple-A affiliate. Over his 17 appearances, including five starts, he has posted an ERA and WHIP of 6.75 and 1.856.
