Right-hander Zack Godley has chosen to become a free agent rather than accept an outright assignment to the Blue Jays’ Triple-A affiliate, MLB Trade Rumors’ Steve Adams reports (Twitter link). Godley cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Jays earlier this week.

It’s been a tumultuous season for Godley, who began the year in the Diamondbacks’ rotation but fell out of favor after a rough start. A move to the bullpen also didn’t help, as Godley was designated for assignment after posting a 6.39 ERA over 76 innings.
