TORONTO -- The Blue Jays claimed Chris Schwinden on waivers from the Mets and, to make room on the 40-man roster, designated Daniel Farquhar for assignment.

Schwinden appeared in three games, including two starts, for the Mets this season, posting an 0-1 record and 12.46 ERA. The 25-year-old will report to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Farquhar, meanwhile, appeared in 20 games in relief at Double-A New Hampshire, with one save and a 2.97 ERA.

Farquhar was Toronto's 10th-round Draft pick in 2008 and made his big league debut with the club last season. In three games with the Blue Jays, he had a 13.50 ERA.
