Blue Jays send Carreno, McCoy to triple-A

Joel Carreno and Mike McCoy will be playing in Buffalo for 2013.

The Toronto Blue Jays announced on Friday that McCoy and Carreno cleared waivers and have been optioned to triple-A Buffalo.

The two were designated for assignment earlier in the week.

McCoy spent 32 games with the Blue Jays last season as a utility infielder. He hit one home run, seven RBIs with a .173/.232/.250/.482 slash line. He spent the rest of the year with triple-A Las Vegas.

Carreno made 11 appearances for Toronto in 2012. The reliever posted a 0-2 record with a 6.14 ERA, 16 strikeouts and a 1.64 WHIP.

Mike McDade will not be joining them in Buffalo as he was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Indians.

McDade was designated for assignment on Nov. 20 to create room on the 40-man roster.

The 23-year-old hit .275 with 15 home runs and 49 RBIs for double-A New Hampshire last season. He was added to triple-A Las Vegas late in the year.

Right-hander Cory Wade cleared waivers as well but he elected to become a free agent instead of accepting his minor-league assignment.
