The Phillies signed Walters to a minor league contract.

Walters spent all of last season in the minors where he went 7-9 with a 4.82 ERA and a 125:46 K:BB ratio in 142 innings. He'll give the Phillies additional starting depth in the minors.

Blue Jays acquired RHP P.J. Walters from the Royals for cash considerations; assigned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

Walters was struggling mightily this season at Triple-A Omaha and owns an ugly 6.28 ERA in 152 career major league innings. He's doubtful to get a shot in Toronto.

Royals reassigned RHP P.J. Walters and RHP Cory Wade to minor league camp.

P.J. Walters was hit hard in Friday's Cactus League loss to the Angels, surrendering three runs on five hits over two innings of work.

Walters also issued a pair of free passes and failed to strike out a batter. The former Twins hurler now owns an unsightly 9.45 ERA on the spring season, making it extremely unlikely that he'll get a look with the Royals any time soon.

According to Tim Dierkes of MLBTradeRumors.com, Twins right-hander P.J. Walters has cleared waivers.

Walters was designated for assignment by Minnesota on July 4 after posting a 5.95 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over his first eight major league starts this season. The 28-year-old must now decide whether to accept an assignment to Triple-A Rochester or explore the free agent waters.

Twins designated RHP P.J. Walters for assignment.

It comes as no surprise. Walters has posted a 5.95 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over eight starts this season for the Twins and is no longer needed with Mike Pelfrey returning from the DL. He seems likely to clear waivers and wind up back at Triple-A Rochester.

P.J. Walters allowed three runs over five innings in a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

Walters held the Yankees scoreless through five innings before falling apart in the sixth, surrendering three runs without recording an out. In total he gave up for hits and three walks, striking out three. We keep wondering aloud how long Walters will be allowed to stay in the Twins' rotation and he keeps going out there every fifth day, so expect to see him Monday when the Twins take on the Rays in Tampa.

P.J. Walters was knocked around again in Friday's loss to the Royals, surrendering six runs on six hits in his three innings of work.

Walters walked one and struck out one on the night. This disaster comes on the heels of his last start, where he allowed six runs in just 1/3 of an inning in a losing effort against the Indians. While the Twins are starved for depth in the starting rotation, it would be surprising to see them let Walters make another start. He should even be avoided in deep AL-only formats.
