Shafer split the season between the Blue Jays and the Bisons. He pitched in 34 games for the Jays, with a 3.86 ERA. In 39.2 innings he allowed 41 hits, 6 home runs, 25 walks and 39 strikeouts. In Buffalo he pitched in 24 games, had a 3.52 ERA. In 30.2 innings he allowed 29 hits, 3 homers, 8 walks and 35 strikeouts.
If he stayed in the organization he would have been available in the Rule 5 draft. But he likely would have opted for free agency.
I was hoping Shafer would have a bigger part in the Jays bullpen next year, but guess not.
