TorToronto Blue Jays
Mickey Storey
May 24: Storey signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays on Saturday and was assigned to Triple-A Buffalo, Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports. In order to open a spot on the 40-man roster in late April, Storey was the odd man out, getting released in the process. His performance prior to the development didn't help his cause -- four runs on seven hits and five walks, while striking out two in 3.1 innings across four contests -- but he'll again supply organizational depth in case a need arises in Toronto's bullpen.

Apr 29: Storey was released by the Blue Jays on Tuesday. Storey allowed four earned runs and 10 runners to reach base in just 3.1 innings this season, so the Blue Jays decided to release him to open up a spot on the 40-man roster. Storey is 28 years old, so he will likely land a minor league contract with another team.

Apr 14: Storey returned from a left trapezius injury to toss two innings of one-run ball for Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday, The Buffalo News reports. Storey is one of the Jays' top relievers in the minors, and he's seemingly done enough the last two years to get a shot with the big club, but Toronto already has one of the better bullpens in the league. Assuming his health holds up, Storey still figures to get a chance in the majors this season, though the path to a late-inning role in Toronto appears rather treacherous. At some point, the Jays may consider moving a bullpen arm or two, be it younger pitchers like Storey or a more proven option such as Steve Delabar or Aaron Loup.
