The Oakland Athletics have acquired right-hander Jesse Chavez from the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for cash considerations, the A’s have announced:

Chavez was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays earlier this month to make room on their roster for right-hander Chad Jenkins. Chavez will take the forty-man roster spot left vacant by right-hander Bartolo Colon, who was suspended earlier this week for fifty games by Major League Baseball.

Chavez was selected off waivers by the Blue Jays from the Kansas City Royals last October. The 29-year-old appeared in nine games, including two starts, for Toronto this season, posting an ERA of 8.44 over twenty-one and one-third innings of work. He owns a career ERA of 5.74 over five seasons at the major league level.

Chavez spent a majority of the season with Toronto’s Triple-A affiliate, maintaining an ERA of 3.98 with 8.1 SO/9 and 1.9 BB/9 over nineteen appearances, including seventeen starts.
