• Minor League reliever Colt Hynes, who was designated for assignment on Monday to make room for newly acquired hurler Kevin Correia, was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.
Hynes, whom the Dodgers acquired from the Indians in exchanged for Duke von Schamann on April 6, compiled a 4.08 ERA in 42 appearances for Albuquerque. Hynes sports a 9.00 ERA in 22 Major League appearances, all made as a member of the Padres in 2013.
• The Dodgers have asked for unconditional release waivers on Chone Figgins after designating him for assignment last Wednesday. Figgins has not suited up for Los Angeles since June 13 due to a strained left quadriceps muscle.
The emergence of rookie shortstop Miguel Rojas as well as the presence of utility fielder Justin Turner leaves no room for Figgins on the bench after the 12-year veteran made the Opening Day roster as a non-roster invitee in the spring.
Figgins, 36, batted .217 (13-for-60) with a .373 on-base percentage in 76 plate appearances for the Dodgers this season.
