The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed RHP Mickey Storey off waivers, making them Storey’s third (or perhaps fourth) team in the last month.

Storey was briefly a Yankee in November, as he was claimed off waivers from Houston on Nov. 20 but then designated for assignment on Nov. 30 when the Yankees officially re-signed Mariano Rivera. He was then claimed once again by Houston on Dec. 6, only to be designated for assignment once more on Monday when the Astros signed Carlos Pena.

Storey, 26, split 2012 between Houston and Triple-A Oklahoma City, posting a 3.05 ERA in 65 innings for the Triple-A RedHawks and going 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in 26 relief appearances for the Astros.
