From beat writer John Lott of the National Post in Canada …

Santos was designated for assignment by the Jays on July 21 after posting a brutal 7.78 ERA in 24 relief appearances, but the 31-year-old right-hander passed through waivers unclaimed and was then sent outright to Triple-A Buffalo, where he rattled off 11 scoreless relief appearances to earn his way back up.

Santos was excellent in a setup role last season, finishing with a 1.75 ERA in 29 appearances.
