On August 24th, the Arizona Diamondbacks made a flurry of transactions. One of them was designating first baseman/outfielder Danny Dorn for assignment. At the time, he was playing for the Triple A Reno Aces. On Friday, Dorn was claimed by the Toronto Blue Jays and sent to their top farm club. The news was tweeted by Sportsnets’ Shi Davidi.

The 31-year old Dorn made his Major League debut this year with the D-backs on April 21st, nine years after he was taken in the 32nd round of the 2006 Draft by the Cincinnati Reds. He had five hits in 32 plate appearances with the Snakes with a double and three RBI’s. Dorn was having a tremendous season with the Aces, batting .386, tops in the Pacific Coast League at the time of his designation with ten home runs, 53 RBI’s and an OPS of 1.062. He also spent time in the Detroit Tigers’ organization before signing with Arizona on November 7, 2013.

We wish Danny Dorn the best of luck in Toronto and hope he can be called up during the pennant chase.
