The Blue Jays traded for Gio Urshela, a third baseman from Cleveland. In return Cleveland gets cash or a PTBN.

He was playing for their Triple-A team, hitting .324/.405/.432 in 11 games. He played part time for the major league team the last two years. In 148 games he hit .225/.273/.314 with 7 home runs.

Gio has played a handful of games at short, second and first in the majors, but mostly he plays third.

He is out of options and might be taking Richard Urena's roster spot.
