The Toronto Blue Jays claimed left-handed reliever Tommy Hottovy off waivers from the Texas Rangers on Thursday.

Hottovy, 31, was designated for assignment earlier this week so the club could clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Lance Berkman.

Hottovy was originally claimed by the Rangers in November from the Kansas City Royals. The lefty has a career 4.05 ERA in 17 outings out of the bullpen for the Red Sox and Kansas City the past two seasons.
