The Toronto Blue Jays will not be attending any arbitration hearings for the 15th year in a row after agreeing to a two-year contract with 30-year old reliever Casey Janssen worth $5.9 million. It includes a club option in 2014, which if picked up, will pay Janssen $4.0 million. Janssen has agreed to make an annual donation to the Jays Care Foundation.
Welcome back, Casey! Time to splurge on a downtown condo.
Update: According to MLB Trade Rumors, Janssen will earn $2 million in 2012 (splitting the middle between the arbitration figures) and $3.9 in 2013. He earned $1.095 million last season.
