MANCHESTER, NH – The Toronto Blue Jays have announced a series of New Hampshire Fisher Cats roster moves, including the signing of 2013 World Series Champion and former Boston Red Sox catcher Ryan Lavarnway.

A sixth-round draft pick out of Yale in 2008, Lavarnway played in 97 games with the Red Sox from 2011 – 2014, and hit .299 during Boston’s 2013 World Series Championship season.
Last year, Lavarnway spent time with the Baltimore Orioles (10 games) and the Atlanta Braves (27). He remained in the Braves organization until becoming a free agent on May 13, 2016. The 28-year-old is scheduled to make his Blue Jays organizational debut tonight, batting fifth as the designated hitter.
LHP Colt Hynes has returned to the Fisher Cats roster after seven relief appearances in Triple-A Buffalo. The 30-year-old went 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA, striking seven batters and walking none in nine total innings.
LHP Daniel Schlereth has been transferred to the Short Season-A Vancouver Canadians roster, and 1B K.C. Hobson has been released.
