You might have thought that the Oliver Drake era was over in Toronto, but you were wrong. The Blue Jays claimed the righty off of waivers from the Tampa Bay Rays. In a corresponding move, Mark Leiter Jr. has been designated for assignment.
Most years, the non-tender deadline comes and goes for the Blue Jays without much fanfare. The most eventful non-tender deadline I can recall was December of 2013 when the team non-tendered J.P. Arencibia, then turned around and signed Dioner Navarro to a two-year deal.
