Blue Jays claim Roach

The TORONTO BLUE JAYS have claimed RHP DONN ROACH off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds. To make room on the 40-man roster the Blue Jays have transferred outfielder MICHAEL SAUNDERS from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

ROACH, 25, started one game for the Chicago Cubs this season before being claimed on waivers by Cincinnati on June 5.   In 22 starts at the Triple-A level this season, the 6-0, 195lb. right handed pitcher has posted a 9-6 record with a 3.50 ERA for Iowa (Cubs) and Louisville (Reds).
