Blue Jays claim Danny Dorn off waivers from the Diamondbacks


The Blue Jays have claimed 1B/OF Danny Dorn off waivers from the Diamondbacks, Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi reports. The D’Backs had designated Dorn for assignment on Monday.

Dorn struggled struggled across 32 plate appearances at the big league level this season, posting a meager .167 batting average. However, the 31-year-old has been putting up outstanding numbers at Triple-A Reno, batting .386/.444/.618 with 10 home runs and 53 RBI in 305 plate appearances.

Dorn will report to Triple-A Buffalo, but could provide depth on the Blue Jays’ bench once rosters expand in September.
