Blue Jays sign veteran left-hander Clayton Richard

Blue Jays sign veteran left-hander Clayton Richard The Toronto Blue Jays have added a versatile veteran pitcher in Clayton Richard. The Jays acquired the 35-year-old lefty, who was designated for assignment by the San Diego Padres on Dec. 20, and cash considerations in exchange for Canadian outfielder Connor Panas. Panas spent last season with the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Toronto designed right-handed reliever Oliver Drake for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for its new pitcher. Richard is the second arm Toronto has added to its roster in recent days, after signing free agent Matt Shoemaker, 32, to a one-year, $3.5 million (U.S.) deal on Friday. Richard is owed $3 million this coming season.

David Phelps heads to Toronto on an incentive-laden contract as he looks to bounce back from Tommy John surgery

The Blue Jays have reportedly signed reliever David Phelps to a one-year contract with a team option for 2020 and various bonuses based on appearances and games finished, according to Ken Rosenthal.

Phelps, 32, did not play at all in 2018, having torn his ulnar collateral ligament in spring training for the Mariners and will likely be ready to go this spring training. As Rosenthal reported, he is only guaranteed $2.5 million this season but will get various bonuses for additional games finished. Unless something happens to Ken Giles it is unlikely that Phelps would reach the $350,000 bonuses for 40+ games finished.

This is a good low-risk signing for the Blue Jays that demonstrates the club’s financial flexibility, as this contract can be worth anything from $2.5 million to $13 million.

The Blue Jays will have to make room on the 40-man roster for Phelps, with Dalton Pompey and Sam Gaviglio as the most likely candidates to be removed.

Roy Halladay won’t represent the Blue Jays — or the Phillies — in Hall of Fame.
The family of the late Roy Halladay has reportedly requested his future Baseball Hall of Fame plaque not sport a Toronto Blue Jays or Philadelphia Phillies logo. Halladay will be inducted into Cooperstown in July alongside Mariano Rivera, Mike Mussina and Edgar Martinez, Harold Baines and Lee Smith. The irght-hander played 12 seasons for the Jays and finished his career with four years in Philadelphia. Halladay, who died in a plane crash in November 2017 at the age of 40, received 85.4 per cent of the votes to gain entry to the hall on Tuesday in his first year of eligibility on the Baseball Writers’ Association of America ballot.
