According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, the Blue Jays have acquired left-hander Dana Eveland from the Athletics in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Eveland was designated for assignment earlier this week.
The 26-year-old southpaw was touched up to the tune of a 7.16 ERA in 13 games (nine starts) with the Athletics last season, but was 9-9 with a 4.34 ERA in 2008, including a 3.49 ERA over his first 19 starts. A groundball pitcher, Eveland doesn’t throw very hard — usually under 90 MPH — and hasn’t yet shown the proper command (4.6 BB/9) to suggest he can be a reliable starter in the major leagues.
Ultimately, it doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for the Jays, but I suppose you can never have enough arms.
