The Toronto Blue Jays announced Monday that they picked up catcher Bobby Wilson from the Los Angeles Angels.
Wilson, 29, is a Seminole High School graduate and Dunedin native drafted by the Angels in 2002.
He made his Major League Baseball debut with the Angels in 2008 and spent the past two years as the organization's No. 2 catcher, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"I don't know what to think of it, but it's time to move forward," he told Mike DiGiovanna, a reporter for the Times.
Wilson appeared in 75 games for the Angels last season, according to news release from the Blue Jays. Last season, he hit .211 with five doubles, three home runs and 13 RBIs and threw out 25 percent of would-be base stealers, or 15 out of 60.
The right-handed hitter attended St. Petersburg College.
