DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) — The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed pitcher Liam Hendriks off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles.

The Blue Jays announced the move Friday. Infielder Brent Morel was designated for assignment.

The 25-year-old Hendriks went 1-3 with a 6.85 ERA in 10 games last season with Minnesota. The right-hander from Australia is 2-13 with a 6.06 ERA in three season with the Twins.

Hendriks was claimed by the Chicago Cubs off waivers from Minnesota last December. Later in the month, the Orioles claimed him.

The 26-year-old Morel spent last season in the Chicago White Sox system, mostly in Triple-A. He has played 194 games in the majors and hit .229 with 13 home runs and 54 RBIs.
