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.

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.

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.
