  • Blue Jays sign John Buck, Jose Bautista, Dustin McGowan and Raul Chavez

    Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos was a busy fellow yesterday, signing four players to go along with free- agent catcher John Buck: Outfielder Jose Bautista to a one-year, $2.4-million US deal, right-hander Dustin McGowan for $500,000 and one year, as well as outfielder Joey Gathright and catcher Raul Chavez to minor-league deals, with invites to spring training.

    Bautista, 29, hit .236 with 13 homers and 40 homers in 113 games. McGowan, 27, did not pitch in 2009 while recovering from shoulder surgery.

    Gathright, 28, appeared in 37 games with the Chicago Cubs and the Boston Red Sox, hitting .267. Chavez, 36, hit .258 with two homers and 15 RBIs with the Jays. He threw out 16 of 45 potential base-stealers (35.6%) to rank third in the AL with a minimum of 50 games played.

    I really hope McGowan can regain the form he had before this latest injury. If he can get back on track, $500,000 will be a bargain.

      Well with the way the salary structure in baseball is, the first 6 years of a player's career is normally a bargain. Then...they hit free agency...
