Blue Jays place pitcher Mike Bolsinger on waivers

Blue Jays voice Dan Shulman on Sportsnet Starting Lineup, reacts to FanGraphs having their rotation ranked 16th ahead the 2017 season.

The Toronto Blue Jays have placed relief pitcher Mike Bolsinger on waivers.

Bolsinger had a tough outing Saturday in the team’s final pre-season game. The 29-year-old righty allowed five hits, three runs, one walk and had one strikeout in just 0.1 innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

This move likely means Ryan Tepera will join Roberto Osuna, Joe Biagini, Jason Grilli, J.P. Howell, Aaron Loup and Joe Smith to round out the team’s bullpen.

The Blue Jays must have their roster set by Sunday at noon ET.

Bolsinger was acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers for Jesse Chavez in August 2016. He went 1-4 with a 6.04 ERA with the Buffalo Bisons in 2016.
