News: Burns was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet reports.
Impact: Though he no longer possesses a spot on the 40-man roster, Burns will still be invited to major league spring training to stake his claim to a bullpen job with the big club. He saw time at multiple levels in 2014, but struggled mightily during his time in the Rangers' organization at Triple-A Round Rock, compiling a 7.44 ERA and 2.01 WHIP over 32.2 innings.

News: The Blue Jays designated Burns for assignment Wednesday, Blue Jays broadcaster Mike Wilner reports.
Impact: Burns was removed from the 40-man roster to open up a spot for Matt West, whom the Blue Jays claimed off waivers. Burns has appeared in 27 big league games, so he could garner some interest on the waiver wire.
