Jacob Waguespack – RHP
Originally acquired back at the 2018 trade deadline from the Philadelphia Phillies, right-hander Jacob Waguespack flirted with the Blue Jays’ active roster but bounced between Toronto and AAA through most of his tenure with the club.
At the big league level, Waguespack pitched to a 5.08 ERA through 27 outings (13) starts across two seasons. The Louisiana product racked up 95.2 innings and earned a 7.4 K/9 and a 3.6 BB/9, finishing with a 5-5 record. He last appeared in the Major Leagues back in 2020 and spent all of last year in AAA, where he earned a 2.86 ERA through 24 outings.
With the Buffaloes, Waguespack did spend some time in the Minor Leagues but so far this year, the right-hander has made six starts and boasts a 4.40 ERA through 30.2 innings. While his record currently stands at 1-3, Waguespack is sporting a 9.1 K/9 and a 1.272 WHIP with just 15 earned runs.
Breyvic Valera – INF
Suiting up in 39 games for the Blue Jays in 2021, infielder Breyvic Valera earned a .669 OPS and .253 batting average at the big league level last season but was released by the club this past offseason. The Venezuelan product would go on to sign a deal with the Buffaloes at a reported $1 million for the year.
In 2022, Valera is struggling at the plate, sporting a .204 batting average while also only having five extra-base hits through 103 at-bats with five RBI. He has walked more than he has struck out (13 vs. 11 respectively) and has also spent time across the diamond, playing mostly at first base with some reps at second, third, and in the outfield on the year as well.
