It looks like Joe Biagini won’t be the Jays 5th starter, at least to start off the season.
The Blue Jays have signed LHP Jaime Garcia to a 1-year contract worth $8 million, with a team option for a second year. It looks like the option is for $10 million, with a $2 million buyout. So, he’s guaranteed $10 million.
In total he made 27 starts, had a 5-10 record and a 4.41 ERA. In 157 innings, he allowed 157 hits, 18 homers, 64 walks with 129 strikeouts.
He’s been in the majors for 9 years. He’s got a 67-55 record with a 3.69 ERA, pitching for the Cardinals until last year.
It seems like a reasonable contract.
The Orioles signed Andrew Cashner earlier this afternoon. He got 2-years and $16 million, with a vesting option for a third season. He gets the 3rd year if he pitches 360 innings between the first two years.
Which team got the better deal?
