Blue Jays Sign Veteran Reliever; Posted 2.25 ERA Last Season

After a recent stint with the Detroit Tigers, right-handed pitcher Matt Wisler has signed a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.

This move comes just two weeks after his release from the Tigers, where he had joined back in February.

During his time with the Tigers' Triple-A affiliate, the Toledo Mud Hens, Wisler participated in 39 appearances, attaining a 4.40 ERA, a 5-2 win-loss record, 53 strikeouts, and two saves.

Wisler's baseball journey has been characterized by his presence on several prominent teams.

From the San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves to the Cincinnati Reds, Seattle Mariners, Minnesota Twins, San Francisco Giants, and Tampa Bay Rays, Wisler's experience spans across these organizations.

This diverse journey has contributed to his MLB record of 25 wins and 36 losses, along with 436 strikeouts and a 4.59 ERA.

He had the best season of his career last season, however, compiling a fantastic 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, with 35 strikeouts across 44 innings and 39 appearances with the Tampa Bay Rays.

As he embarks on this new chapter with the Toronto Blue Jays on a minor league contract, it will be interesting to see how his performance unfolds and whether he can once again exhibit the prowess that marked his standout seasons with other teams. Photo Credit: John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports
