Blue Jays claim Cousins on waivers

MIAMI — With a surplus of left-handed hitting outfielders, the Marlins have parted ways with Scott Cousins.

The 27-year-old on Wednesday was claimed on waivers by the Blue Jays.

Cousins spent much of 2012 at Triple-A New Orleans, where he batted .296 with seven home runs and 36 RBIs in 61 games.

For the Marlins, he appeared in 53 games and batted .163 in 86 at-bats.

Also on Wednesday, right-hander Sandy Rosario was claimed on waivers by the Red Sox.

And the Marlins outrighted infielders Donnie Murphy, Nick Green and Gil Velazquez to Triple-A New Orleans.
