Losing their manager to the Red Sox hasn’t kept the Blue Jays from being incredibly active on the waiver wire. Yesterday they claimed catcher Bobby Wilson from the Angels and today they claimed right-hander David Herndon from the Phillies.
Herndon had some success in Philadelphia in 2010 and 2011, logging 109 total innings with a 3.79 ERA, but underwent Tommy John elbow surgery in June and won’t be ready for game action for at least another seven or eight months.
Herndon is 27 years old and didn’t have a ton of upside even before the surgery, but if healthy he could be a solid middle reliever.
