Blue Jays sent RHP Andrew Carpenter outright to Triple-A Las Vegas.

The move clears Carpenter from the 40-man roster. Toronto claimed Carpenter off waivers from the Padres last month. He thrived this season in his first full year as a reliever, posting a 1.79 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 65/11 K/BB ratio over 60 1/3 innings at the Triple-A level. He still has an outside shot to earn a bullpen spot for the Jays with a strong spring training.
