Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Joba Chamberlain has found a new home.

The right-handed reliever, who was released by the Tigers back on July 10, signed a minor-league deal with the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday.

In 30 games this season, Chamberlain was 0-2 with 15 strikeouts and a 4.09 ERA in 22 innings for the Tigers.

Chamberlain, 29, went 2-5 with a 3.57 ERA last year. The Tigers signed him for $1 million plus incentives this past offseason. He was designated for assignment July 4.

In his nine-year career, Chamberlain is 25-21 with seven saves and a 3.82 ERA.

Chamberlain will be assigned to Triple-A Buffalo.
