TORONTO (AP) The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins and Yankees pitcher Cory Wade off waivers.

The Blue Jays made the moves Wednesday.

The 27-year-old Cousins was claimed from Miami. He's spent part of three seasons with the Marlins. Last year, he plowed into San Francisco catcher Buster Posey at the plate, leaving the Giants star with a broken left leg and torn ligaments in his ankle.

Wade was 1-1 with a 6.46 ERA in 39 relief appearances for New York this season. The 29-year-old right-hander did not pitch for the Yankees in the playoffs this month.
