Aaron Laffey is outta here; claimed by Jays
By Adam Rubin
Left-hander Aaron Laffey, who was designated for assignment by the Mets on Sunday, has been claimed off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays.
Laffey, 28, had a 7.20 ERA in four starts (two appearances) during his brief Mets career.
The Mets recently signed ex-Yankee D.J. Mitchell to a minor league deal. He should offset the loss of Laffey in terms of starting-pitching depth.
