Blue Jays pitcher Aaron Laffey has chosen to become a free agent rather than report to the minor leagues.

The team announced the decision Monday.

Laffey was claimed off waivers from the Mets last Tuesday. The 28-year-old lefty made one start for Toronto, and was wild in a no-decision Friday night against the Yankees.

Laffey pitched for Toronto last year.
