Blue Jays sign Ronald Belisario

Right-hander Ronald Belisario and the Blue Jays have agreed to a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training, with Shi Davidi of Toronto Sportsnet reporting that it’ll be worth $1.7 million if he makes the team.

Belisario was awful for the White Sox last season, allowing 46 runs in 66 innings, but he posted a 3.24 ERA in 139 innings for the Dodgers during the previous two seasons.

Toronto has clearly been looking for veteran bullpen help after losing Casey Janssen to free agency and the 32-year-old Belisario has a good chance to claim a middle relief role.
