Susan Slusser reports that the Jays will be signing Brandon Belt to a one-year contract. And Kaitlyn McGrath confirmed it, saying he is getting $9.3 million.

Belt turns 35 in April. He’s played for the Giants for 12 seasons. Career he has a .261/.356/.458 batting line with 175 home runs. Last year he hit just .213/.326/.350 in 78 games, but he missed a lot of time with a knee injury. He had surgery back in January. In 2021 he hit .274/.378/.597 with 29 home runs, so if he’s healthy, he could be productive.

He’s a left-handed bat who played mostly first base last year. He’s played some outfield in the past, but not since 2019.
