Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia underwent an MRI on his knee earlier Wednesday and will not have results until Thursday, according to Sportsnet’s James Cybulski.
Arencibia says has been dealing with knee soreness for awhile but 20 minutes prior to Wednesday’s 9-7 loss to the Seattle Mariners, it felt different than before when it flared up roughly.

Toronto Blue Jays infielder Mark DeRosa has been claimed off waivers, according to MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal.
At this point the Jays have three options until tomorrow: Trade him, let him go or pull him back. Rosenthal suspects the Jays will not move the infielder.
The 38-year-old is owed around $230,000 for the rest of the season and has a team option for the 2014 season at $750,000 with a buyout of $25,000.
DeRosa is currently batting .231 with an OPS of .769 and seven home runs in 147 at-bats.
