The Jays took Juan Perez off the 40 man roster and then resigned him to a minor league deal. Perez will have an invite to spring training, last year he started his season in Toronto with 22 1/3 scoreless innings. His season was cut short on August 9th and instead of doing Tommy John surgery he decided to rehab it.
Mike Nickeas was signed to a minor league deal as well. He appeared in one game for the Jays and played 58 gams in Buffalo posting a .166 average. Nickeas has always been know for his defensive ability and not his offense.
Andy LaRoache was signed to a minor league contract. He also appeared in one game for the Jays. In Buffalo he hit for a .271 avg with 12 homeruns and 51 RBI’s.
The Jays have hired Kevin Seitzer as their new hitting coach. He played in the Majors for 12 years posting a .295/.375/.404 slash. He was the hitting coach for the Kanas City Royals from 2009-2012.
The Jays have made two moves this offseason.
The First was to exercise Casey Janssen’s 4 million dollar extension for the 2014 season.
The second was to decline to make Josh Johnson a qualifying offer.
