The Toronto Blue Jays have sent prospects J.J. D’Orazio and Yaifer Perdomo to the Arizona Diamondbacks, fulfilling the players to be named later elements of the July 30 trade that brought Joakim Soria to Toronto.

D’Orazio, a catcher, appeared in 27 minor league games this season in low-A, hitting two home runs.

Perdomo, a 20-year-old left-handed pitcher, has appeared in nine minor league games this year, posting a 3.50 ERA across 36 innings pitched.

Soria, the Blue Jays' final trade-deadline acquisition, has struggled with a finger issue since joining the team. He was placed on the 10-day injured list at the start of August with right middle finger inflammation, missing most of the month. Soria struck out two batters in one inning of work during Toronto's 3-2 win against the Detroit Tigers on Aug. 28, his second game back with the team.

The 37-year-old right-hander reliever has a 1-4 record with a 3.82 ERA and 36 strikeouts this season.
