DETROIT -- Minor League outfielder Kenny Wilson is heading back to the Blue Jays.

Wilson, who was claimed off waivers by the Twins from the Blue Jays on April 24, was claimed off waivers by Toronto on Sunday after he was designated for assignment by Minnesota on Friday.

Wilson was removed from the 40-man roster by the Twins to make room for first baseman/outfielder Chris Parmelee, who had his contract selected from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

Wilson, 24, hit .195/.327/.268 in 11 games with Double-A New Britain upon being claimed by the Twins. The Blue Jays originally designated him for assignment on April 21 to make room for outfielder Darin Mastroianni, who was also acquired via waivers from the Twins.
