Blue Jays Designate Danny Valencia for Assignment

The Toronto Blue Jays have designated Danny Valencia and Ezequiel Careera for assignment, the team announced.   The team also called up infielder Munenori Kawasaki and optioned Ryan Tepera to Triple-A.

Valencia, 30, was having a productive season, hitting .296/.331/.506 with seven homers and 29 RBIs in 173 plate appearances.  He played mostly against left-handed pitching.  The move was made to clear a spot for recently acquired Ben Revere on the active roster.

Valencia should draw interest from multiple teams and should be back in the show soon.
