The Toronto Blue Jays acquired left-handed pitcher Travis Bergen from the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday in exchange for cash considerations.

Toronto sent Bergen to the Diamondbacks at last season's trade deadline in the deal that brought starter Robbie Ray to the Blue Jays. Bergen made seven appearances for the Diamondbacks and finished the campaign with a 3.24 ERA and 11 strikeouts over 8.1 innings.

The 27-year-old was selected by the Blue Jays in the seventh round of the 2015 draft, then taken by the Giants in the 2018 Rule 5 draft and returned to the Blue Jays in August of 2019.

Right-hander Patrick Murphy was placed on the 60-day injured list with a sprained right A/C joint to make room for Bergen on Toronto's 40-man roster.
