Blue Jays news and notes from the morning of November 20, 2018, including some former Blue Jays signing MiLB deals and a new prospect being assigned to Buffalo.

According to the official MiLB transactions page for the Triple-A International League, right-handed pitcher Trent Thornton, who was recently acquired by the Blue Jays from the Houston Astros in exchange for Aledmys Diaz, has been assigned to Triple-A Buffalo.

Hauschild, 28, has pitched a total of16.1 major league innings, 8.1 of them coming this summer with the Jays, where he made one start and appeared in two games overall.

Guilmet Goes to Minny

Another former Blue Jay, right-handed pitcher Preston Guilmet, has also joined a new organization, signing a minor-league deal with the Minnesota Twins, per Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com

Guilmet, a former member of the Cardinals organization, pitched to an ERA of 9.00 with the Jays this season in 8.0 total frames, striking out five and walking four.
