DUNEDIN, Fla. — The Toronto Blue Jays are stuck with Mike Sirotka's bad left shoulder.
In a 14-page decision, Commissioner Bud Selig ruled Wednesday the six-player trade that sent David Wells to the Chicago White Sox for Sirotka will stand.
With Sirotka injured and unable to pitch, the Blue Jays asked that the deal be reworked or rescinded.
Instead of awarding compensation, Selig bluntly told the Blue Jays "buyer beware." As in, they should've fully checked out Sirotka before making the trade Jan. 14.
"After careful consideration of all the information before me, I uphold the transaction and deny the Toronto club's claim for relief," Selig said.
