Blue Jays sign Michael Bourn to a minor league deal


Ken Rosenthal reports that the Toronto Blue Jays have signed Michael Bourn to a minor league contract. The Braves had released him a week ago.

Bourn, 33, hit .238/.310/.282 with 17 stolen bases in 482 plate appearances between the Indians and Braves last season and then couldn’t make a bad Braves club out of camp. He’ll likely be in the minors until an injury or two happens, or until he shows that he’s really prepared to bounce back in a major way.
