As first reported by MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger, outfielder Kenny Wilson is headed back to the Blue Jays on another waiver claim. He was claimed away from Toronto by the Twins on April 24, but the Twins cut him from their 40-man roster late last week.
Wilson was batting just .195 with a .595 OPS in 50 plate appearances for the Twins’ Double-A affiliate in New Britain and is a career .228/.326/.311 career hitter in the minors. But he can boast 199 steals.
The 24-year-old was a second-round pick of the Blue Jays in the 2008 MLB Amateur Draft out of a Tampa high school.
