Matt Tuiasosopo Waived, Claimed by the Blue Jays

In another move that signifies the roles are being finalized for the Arizona Diamondbacks, the team waived Matt Tuiasosopo yesterday. He was competing for a spot in the D’backs’ outfield. Later in the day, the Toronto Blue Jays announced that they had claimed the versatile Tuiasosopo off waivers, according to

The 27-year old Tuiasosopo received 34 at-bats in 16 games for the D’backs during Spring Training. He had six RBI’s but he also struck out 14 times. His slash line was .118/.205/.147 with only one extra base hit. Tuiasosopo was competing with Tony Campana for a fifth outfielder’s spot on the roster. Although Campana didn’t fare much better (..216/.293/.216), his tremendous speed serves as a weapon late in tight ballgames.

We wish Matt Tuiasosopo all the best as he tries to stick with the Blue Jays.
