Ken Giles avoids arbitration and signs for $9.6 million for 2020.

He’s been with the Blue Jays for a season and a half, has a 2.48 ERA with 37 saves (39 save opportunities) in 74 games. in 72.2 innings he’s allowed 54 hits, 9 home runs, 21 walks and 105 strikeouts.

And Richard Ureña was claimed by the Orioles off waivers. I hope he gets a chance to play there. Ureña has a .253/.300/.336 with 2 home runs, 15 walks and 83 strikeouts in 91 games with the Blue Jays.

Not that it is about baseball, but as much as I like Popeyes chicken, but there I would guess that $10,000 would be far more than a lifetime supply for me. But then they got far more than $10,000 worth of advertising from this.
