TORONTO (AP) -The Blue Jays ended their experiment with pitcher Tomo Ohka on Monday, giving the right-hander his unconditional release.
Toronto designated Ohka for assignment on June 7 and moved Josh Towers back into the starting rotation to replace him. The Blue Jays then had 10 days to trade Ohka, send him to the minors or release him outright.
The Blue Jays signed Ohka in the offseason to a $1.5 million, one-year deal plus incentives. He went 2-5 with a 5.79 ERA in 10 starts.
In his last game, he was roughed up for five runs in 3 1-3 innings in Toronto's 6-2 loss to the Devil Rays.
