Blue Jays Outright Robert Coello


File this in the nearly irrelevant team news file, but the Blue Jays announced on Tuesday that they had reinstated pitcher Robert Coello from the 60-day disabled list. The move is irrelevant because Coello was outrighted moments later, granting him free agency.

Coello was a minuscule piece for the Blue Jays, hence his eviction from the 40-man roster. He appeared in just six games for Toronto, accumulating a 12.79 ERA over just 6.1 innings pitched. Coello mustered just a single scoreless outing.

The move by Toronto follows the release of pitchers Aaron Laffey, Shawn Hill, and Bobby Korecky on October 4th. Toronto’s 40-man roster is now down to 37 active players and contains 7 players on the 60-day disabled list.

The 2012-2013 offseason promises to contain many more move, as the Blue Jays look to aggressively reshape their roster.
