According to Shi Davidi, the Blue Jays have claimed right-hander Edgar Gonzalez off waivers from the Houston Astros.

Gonzalez, who has appeared in 113 major league games, was designated for assignment by Houston Friday to make room on their 40-man roster for Travis Blackley, who they acquired from the A’s.
To make room on the roster, the Jays moved Dustin McGowan to the 60-day DL. Gonzalez will likely be in uniform when the Jays take on the Tigers Tuesday, meaning Dave Bush, who served up four home runs against the Red Sox just a few hours ago, will be back in a Bisons uniform very shortly.
