TORONTO (AP) - Outfielder Darrell Ceciliani has been acquired by the Toronto Blue Jays from the New York Mets for cash.

A fourth-round selection in the 2009 amateur draft, Ceciliani was designated for assigned Jan. 27 to clear a roster spot when the Mets finalized their $75 million, three-year contract with Yoenis Cespedes.
