Canadian outfielder Dalton Pompey activated from IL, DFA'd by Blue Jays
The Toronto Blue Jays have designated Canadian outfielder Dalton Pompey for assignment after reinstating him from the 60-day injured list.
The Blue Jays opted to designate Pompey for assignment instead of adding him to the 25-man roster. Toronto can return Pompey to the minor leagues only if they place him on waivers and he clears the process.
The team has seven days to put the native of Mississauga, Ont., on waivers, trade him or release him.
