No one claimed him as Toronto sends him to AAA.

We gave up a lot there, huh?

We should have claimed him again, lol.

To make room on the 40-man roster for Ohka, Toronto outrighted infielder Ray Olmedo to Triple-A Syracuse. The Jays claimed Olmedo off waivers from the Reds on Friday. Ryan Roberts, who was designated for assignment on Jan. 9, was also outrighted to Syracuse.

Does a player have to clear waivers when they are outrighted to the AAA team?

They have to clear waivers if being removed from the 40 man roster. Then they can be sent to AAA.

It would be a courtesy, especially at this time of the year to not claim him.
