    The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed outfielder Casper Wells off waivers from Seattle. Outfielder Casper Wells was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays on Wednesday after being designated for assignment by the Mariners on their final roster cutdown. That gave the Mariners a 10-day window to trade, release or outright Wells to the Minors if he cleared waivers. Seattle designated Wells for assignment March 31, when the Mariners kept Jason Bay as a backup outfielder. Wells was one of four players acquired from the Tigers in the Doug Fister trade on July 30, 2011, coming to Seattle along with pitchers Charlie Furbush and Chance Ruffin and third-base prospect Francisco Martinez, who has since been shifted to center field. He played for Detroit in 2010 and at the start of 2011 before being traded to the Mariners in a midseason deal that sent right-hander Doug Fister to the Tigers.
