WASHINGTON -- Right-hander Chris Schwinden's tenure with the Toronto Blue Jays lasted all of one Triple-A start.

After claiming Schwinden off waivers from the Mets and having him make one start at Triple-A Las Vegas, the Jays tried to pass him through waivers to keep him, but not as a 40-man roster member.

The Cleveland Indians then claimed Schwinden and assigned him to Triple-A Columbus.

Schwinden allowed eight runs (seven earned) in three innings in his lone Las Vegas start, including a three-run homer to ex-Met Mike Jacobs.

The Mets designated Schwinden for assignment when they needed to open a 40-man roster spot last week for Elvin Ramirez.
