Players go through waivers all the time...not surprised someone put a claim on him. The Jays would be off the hook for his entire contract...they could still pull him off waivers though if they want too
Yeah he's signed through 2014 I believe with an option for 2015. A lot of people think the Jays are wasting his defensive talent in right field, his stronger position is center field, but they already have a great defensive center fielder in Wells already.
Should be interesting to see what happens in the next few days with this.
