Chone Figgins placed on release waivers, Colt Hynes claimed off waivers by Blue Jays

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers chapter of the careers of a pair of players came to a close on Wednesday. The team placed infielder Chone Figgins on unconditional release waivers, and lost pitcher Colt Hynes to the Blue Jays on a waiver claim.

Figgins was designated for assignment on Aug. 6, and Hynes was designated for assignment on Sunday.

The waivers for Figgins are irrevocable, meaning the Dodgers can't pull him back off waivers. If no other team claims Figgins by Friday at 10 a.m. PT, he will be a free agent. The 36-year-old, who was out of baseball in 2013, hit .217/.373/.267 in 38 games.

Hynes was acquired by the Dodgers from Cleveland on April 6 for minor league pitcher Duke Von Schamann, and spent the whole season in Triple-A. The 29-year-old left-hander put up a 4.08 ERA in 42 games with the Isotopes with 46 strikeouts and 10 walks in 53 innings.

Toronto optioned Hynes to Triple-A Buffalo.
