Jays Add David Dellucci
The Jays this morning added outfielder Dave Dellucci after allowing him to work himself back into playing shape at AAA-Las Vegas. To make room for the 35-year-old lefthanded hitter, they designated outfielder Russ Adams for assignment.
Dellucci played 14 games with the Indians before being released on May 29. He was signed as a free agent by the Jays and batted .317 in 16 games for the 51s, with six doubles, three homers and nine RBIs. He is in New York.
For Adams, the Jays' first-round pick in 2002, the Jays have 10 days to either trade him, release him or assign him to the minor leagues, but as of this moment he is no longer on the club's 40-man roster. The likelihood is that he will clear waivers and accept assignment back to Las Vegas when the time expires.
