Pitcher Gavin Floyd agrees to $1M, 1-year deal with Toronto
TORONTO (AP) Right-hander Gavin Floyd and the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a $1 million, one-year contract.
Floyd can make an additional $1 million in bonuses based on days on the active roster: $500,000 for 90, and $250,000 each for 120 and 140.
A 12-year veteran who has also pitched for Philadelphia, the Chicago White Sox and Atlanta, Floyd had a 2.70 ERA and no decisions in seven relief appearances with Cleveland last season, missing significant time with a fractured elbow for the second straight year.
To make room for Floyd, the Blue Jays designated right-hander Chad Jenkins for assignment.
Also Saturday, the Blue Jays hired former Cleveland and Seattle manager Eric Wedge as player development adviser. The move reunites the 2007 AL Manager of the Year with Blue Jays president Mark Shapiro and GM Ross Atkins, both former colleagues with the Indians.
While with Seattle, Wedge missed 28 games following a stroke in July 2013. He left the team at the end of the season.
