Vizquel to play for Jays in spring training
The team announced the move in a news release. ESPN first reported the sides had agreed to a deal.
Vizquel tweeted: ''I'll be with the Toronto Blue Jays in spring training this year to earn a spot.''
The veteran infielder, who turns 45 on April 24, would be headed into his 24th major league season if he makes the club. Vizquel has 11 Gold Gloves at shortstop and provided a positive clubhouse influence for the Chicago White Sox the past two seasons and a reliable option off the bench.
Vizquel appeared in 58 games last year, batting .251 with eight RBI and seven doubles. He is a career .272 hitter in 2,908 games.
