Bergen signed with the Padres as a non-roster invitee Friday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Blue Jays' Travis Bergen: Clears waivers Monday
Bergen went unclaimed on waivers and was assigned Monday to Triple-A Buffalo.
Though Bergen posted a 1.69 ERA in 10.2 innings with the Blue Jays this season, he fanned just six batters, minimizing his appeal on waivers and resulting in his return to Buffalo. That being said, Toronto's continually fluid bullpen situation could have use of Bergen again at some point this season.... See More ... See Less

Blue Jays' Travis Bergen: Blows save against Tampa Bay
Bergen was credited with a blown save Sunday against the Rays. He issued three walks in one-third of an inning.
Bergen entered the game with two outs and the bases loaded in a one-run game, but he was absolutely woeful and issued three straight walks -- to Austin Meadows, Manuel Margot and Mike Brosseau -- before ultimately recording the final out of the inning. The left-hander now has a 6:8 K:BB across 10.2 innings on the season and while his 1.69 ERA remains excellent, he needs to do a better job in terms of command going forward.... See More ... See Less

Bergen fired a perfect first inning Saturday in the win over Atlanta. He did not factor in the decision.
Bergen made his second appearance of the season and second start as the opener Saturday. He has fired two perfect first innings in his appearances. Toronto's decision to turn to the bullpen for the entirety of the game worked in its favor and Bergen will likely serve as the opener again in the future. The 27-year-old has recorded only 30 innings in the majors, but he has started out strong in 2021.... See More ... See Less

Blue Jays' Travis Bergen: Beginning season on taxi squad
Bergen was optioned to the Blue Jays' taxi squad Thursday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
The 27-year-old southpaw put together an excellent spring with an 11:2 K:BB over 5.2 innings, but it wasn't good enough to earn a spot on the 26-man roster out of the gate. Bergen would likely get the call should anything happen to bullpen lefties Ryan Borucki or Tim Mayza.... See More ... See Less

Bergen earned the save against the Dodgers on Thursday after recording the final two outs of the ninth inning.
With the Diamondbacks holding on to a three-run lead in the ninth inning, Riley Smith returned to continue his long-relief outing. After recording the first out of the frame, Smith issued a walk, prompting Bergen to get the call in for a lefty matchup against Max Muncy, whom he sat down on strikes. Bergen then finished off the save by forcing Chris Taylor to pop out. The 26-year-old southpaw was recalled from the Diamondbacks' alternate training site Sept. 3 and is expected to take on more of a middle-relief role, though the Arizona bullpen is very much in flux....
