Sergio Santos’s season with the Toronto Blue Jays has come to an end.
The Blue Jays reliever was outrighted to double-A New Hampshire on Monday following the completion of the Fisher Cats’ season.
Santos cleared waivers last week after being designated for assignment for the second time this season. The 31-year-old, who was once considered the team’s closer of the future, struggled this year after battling various injuries over the last two seasons.
The hard-throwing righty had an 8.57 ERA, 2.190 WHIP and three blown saves in 26 games with the Blue Jays this season. Since joining Toronto in 2012, Santos compiled a 1-5 record with a 5.23 ERA over 51.2 innings of work.
Santos has a $6-million club option remaining on his contract that will likely be bought out in the off-season.
