BLUE JAYS ACQUIRE BERGEN
The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired LHP Travis Bergen from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for cash considerations. RHP Patrick Murphy has been placed on the 60-day injured list with a sprained right A/C joint.
Bergen, 27, began his 2020 season with Toronto and pitched in one Major League contest before he was dealt to Arizona on August 31 for LHP Robbie Ray and cash. The 6-1, 215 lb. lefty then made seven appearances for the Diamondbacks and finished the campaign with a 3.24 ERA and 11 strikeouts in 8.1 innings of work.
The Kennesaw State University product was selected by the Blue Jays in the seventh round of the 2015 First-Year Player Draft, selected by the Giants in the 2018 Rule 5 draft and returned to the Blue Jays in August of 2019. He has kept a 4.82 ERA while going 3-0 over 29 career games.
