Toronto Blue Jays pick up Ottawa area ball player
A trade by the Toronto Blue Jays has brought an Ottawa ball player up to Canada's team.
Late last night, the Blue Jays traded veteran outfielder Curtis Granderson to the Milwaukee Brewers...
In return, 21-year-old Demi Orimoloye from Orleans has arrived in Toronto.
Orimoloye is an outfielder himself, and originally born in Lagos, Nigeria.
He attended St. Matthew Catholic High School in Orleans, and was drafted into the MLB by Milwaukee in 2015.
Orimoloye will not join the Blue Jays' active 40-man roster, but will instead be joining the organization's farm system, having most recently played for the Carolina Mudcats in the Single A-Advanced league.
