Blue Jays claim reliever Mickey Storey
Righty pitched well against lefty hitters
The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed right-handed pitcher Mickey Storey off of waivers from the Houston Astros.
Storey, 26, made his major-league debut in 2012 with Houston, appearing in 26 games and posting a 0-1 record with a 3.86 earned-run average out of the bullpen.
The six-foot-two, 185-pound right-hander held opponents to a .237 average, including a .167 mark against left-handed hitters.
The Blue Jays now have 40 players on the 40-man roster.
