Blue Jays re-sign Darwin Barney to one-year deal

Leave a comment

As first reported by Shi Davidi of Canada’s Sportsnet, the Blue Jays have agreed to terms on a one-year major league contract with infielder Darwin Barney. The deal is only pending a physical.

Barney is a .246/.294/.339 career hitter at the major league level, but he showed a little pop down the stretch late this summer in Toronto and he’s a strong defender all around the infield.

The 30-year-old will return to a utility-infield role with the Jays.
