Athletics claimed OF Kenny Wilson off waivers from the Blue Jays; optioned him to Triple-A Sacramento.

It's the third new organization that Wilson has joined since April. The 24-year-old outfielder has good speed but he's a weak .239/.333/.338 hitter at Triple-A.

Blue Jays designated OF Kenny Wilson for assignment.

Wilson was plucked off waivers from the Twins back in May. He has struggled to the tune of .234/.312/.333 with two homers and 22 RBI across three minor league stops this season. He's unlikely to generate much interest on waivers, and is likely to return as minor league depth for the Jays.

Blue Jays claimed OF Kenny Wilson off waivers from the Twins; assigned him to Double-A New Hampshire.

Alex Anthopoulos is playing the waiver wire game again. Wilson went from the Jays to the Twins on waivers just a couple weeks ago and now is headed back the other direction. He'll provide minor league depth.

Twins designated OF Kenny Wilson for assignment.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Chris Parmelee. Wilson, who was just claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays a couple weeks ago, could be headed back to Toronto given GM Alex Anthopoulos' affinity for being active on the waiver wire.

Twins claimed OF Kenny Wilson off waivers from the Blue Jays; optioned him to Double-A New Britain.

Wilson is a .228/.326/.312 career hitter in the minors, but he's a very good athlete and the Twins need all the outfield depth they can get. The 24-year-old was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on April 22.
Apr 24 - 3:11 PM

Blue Jays designated OF Kenny Wilson for assignment.

Apr 22 - 3:36 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of OF Kenny Wilson from Double-A New Hampshire.

Wilson is now protected from the Rule 5 draft as a result of being added to the Jays' 40-man roster. The outfielder turns 24 years old in January and has yet to slug above .400 at any level of professional ball.
