QUEBEC -- The Toronto Blue Jays have purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Tony Davis from the Quebec Capitales, the Can-Am League club announced Friday.

In 20 appearances for Quebec this season, the Newberry, Fla., native went 2-0 with a 1.06 ERA. He was used mostly out of the bullpen against lefthanded hitters.

Davis, 24, was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 12th round in 2009 but was released this spring. He joined Fargo-Moorhead of the American Association before he was traded to Quebec in July.

He had a 2.51 ERA in 44 appearances with the Twins' double-A affiliate from 2009 to 2011.

Capitales manager Patrick Scalabrini said in a statement that the Jays made the move to fill a need for left-handed relievers in their organization.

Davis is the second Capitales pitcher sold to a major league club in recent weeks. Right hander Chris Cox of St. George, Ont., a Blue Jays' 2011 draft pick, was purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks in November.

The Jays also claimed third baseman and outfielder Russ Canzler off waivers from the Cleveland Indians.

Canzler appeared in 26 games for the Indians last season, hitting .269 with three home runs and 11 RBIs.

The Blue Jays outrighted right-hander Mickey Storey to triple-A Buffalo to make room on the 40-man roster.
