The Blue Jays have rounded out their 40-man roster with a waiver claim of right-handed pitcher Guillermo Moscoso, reports Danny Knobler:

Guillermo Moscoso claimed by Blue Jays from Blue Jays, KC announces.

The Royals had released Moscoso two days ago and had until March 20 to accept the claim or elect free agency by voiding his contract. The 29-year-old was a breakout contributor to the Athletics in 2011, posting a 3.38 ERA in 128 innings, including 21 starts. The Athletics capitalized on his success by trading him to the Rockies for outfielder Seth Smith. While Smith flourished, Moscoso was unable to replicate his success, finishing 2012 with a 6.12 ERA in 50 innings, used mostly as a reliever.
