The Toronto Blue Jays acquired outfielder John Mayberry Jr. in a trade with the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday night.
In exchange, the American League club have sent minor league infielder Gustavo Pierre to the Phillies.
The deal was announced several hours after the Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 4-3 at Rogers Centre to take the weekend series two games to one.
Mayberry, 30, has hit .213 in 63 games this season with seven doubles, six home runs and 21 runs batted in 122 at-bats.
He has been on the disabled list since July 21 with left wrist inflammation and has appeared in nine games with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs on a rehab assignment, batting .182 with two doubles, a home run and four RBI.
Mayberry will be activated from the disabled list and join the Blue Jays in Tampa Bay where the Blue Jays will begin a three-game series on Tuesday.
In six seasons with the Phillies, the 6-6, 230 lb. right-handed hitter has posted a .242 career average in 500 games with 52 home runs and 169 RBI.
Pierre, 22, has hit .260 this season with 24 doubles, eight home runs and 43 RBI in 107 games between the Dunedin of the Florida State League (A) and New Hampshire of the Eastern League (AA).Report Typo/Error
