Blue Jays claim Walrond

Blue Jays claim Walrond


Day 2 here at the GM meetings.

Scott Boras met with the media a little while ago and talked about a number of his free agents, including outfielder Manny Ramirez, first baseman Mark Texeira, and pitcher Derek Lowe. He talked for awhile, but didn't say anything that would be of interest to Phillies fans, except that the marketplace for all three players is expected to be very strong.

One little piece of Phillies news: the Blue Jays have claimed lefthander Les Walrond off of waivers from the Phillies. Walrond appeared in six games this season, going 1-1 with a 6.10 ERA. That gives the Jays two former Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs, as Fabio Castro was shipped there at the end of the regular season to complete the Matt Stairs trade.
