Blue Jays sign Luke Scott after stints in Korea and Mexico

Luke Scott, last seen in the majors with the Rays in 2013, has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays according to Chris Cotillo of SBNation.

Scott slugged 20-plus homers in three straight seasons for the Orioles from 2008-2010, but now he’s 37 years old and spent last season playing in Korea. He did well there, posting a .900 OPS with power, but got kicked off the team for having an altercation with a coach.

Scott had been playing in the Mexican League before signing with the Blue Jays. He’d probably be limited to platooning at designated hitter, but Scott might have a little gas left in the tank. More likely is that he’ll simply help beef up the Triple-A lineup.
