Blue Jays DFA Anthony Bass before Pride Weekend celebration - ESPN
The Toronto Blue Jays have designated right-handed pitcher Anthony Bass for assignment.
The 35-year-old reliever made headlines last week after sharing a post on social media that called for anti-LGBTQIA+ boycotts of Target and Bud Light. The shared post described the sale of LGBTQIA+ merchandise as "evil" and "demonic."
The move to DFA Bass comes on the same day that the reliever was to catch the ceremonial first pitch from Toronto LGBTQIA+ activist leZlie Lee Kam before Friday's game against the Minnesota Twins as the Blue Jays begin their fourth annual Pride Weekend celebration.
