Blue Jays designated RHP Marcus Walden for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Munenori Kawasaki on the 40-man roster. Walden had a brief stint with the big club earlier this month, but didn't make an appearance. The 25-year-old owns a 3.73 ERA over 90 starts and 24 relief appearances in the minors.

Blue Jays optioned RHP Marcus Walden to Triple-A Buffalo.

Walden was up in the majors for only a couple of days and did not make a single appearance for the Jays. The right-hander should get another look eventually.
Apr 9 - 4:24 PM

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Marcus Walden from Triple-A Buffalo.

No word yet on the corresponding roster move, but Walden will provide much needed depth to a bullpen that was taxed on Friday with Dustin McGowan lasting just 2 2/3 innings. The 25-year-old posted a 3.71 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 88/50 K/BB ratio over 162 1/3 innings at Double-A New Hampshire in 2013.
Apr 5 - 10:00 AM

Blue Jays re-signed RHP Marcus Walden to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Walden posted a 3.71 ERA with just 88 strikeouts over 162 1/3 frames at the Double-A level this past season. He'll be in big league camp but will almost surely start the season in the minors.
