Janssen, Blue Jays agree on two-year deal

Right-hander Casey Janssen agreed to a two-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays to avoid salary arbitration.

The deal is worth at least $5.9 million, and the Blue Jays said the contract includes a $4 million team option for 2014.

Janssen, 30, went 6-0 with a 2.26 ERA and two saves in 55 relief appearances last year. The right-hander is 21-19 with nine saves and a 3.81 ERA in five seasons.
