UPDATE: T.R. Sullivan confirms the deal. It’s a one-year deal with a club option for 2013.

3:14 PMEvan Grant reports that Darren Oliver is poised to sign with the Blue Jays.

The terms are still unknown, but Oliver made $3.25 million last year and all he did was have the best season of his career at age 41.  And of course he’s a left hander, and lefty relievers all have Lazarus Pits that help them live forever, so he may as well sign a ten year deal. Dollar-for-dollar, it will probably work out better for the Jays than A-Rod’s is for the Yankees.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
