Blue Jays radio play-by-play broadcaster Mike Wilner reported on Twitter that the club has signed pitcher Joel Pineiro to a minor league deal and assigned him to Double-A New Hampshire.

Pineiro, 36, hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2011 with the Angels. He spent the 2014 season in the Cubs’ and Angels’ systems, posting a combined 5.93 ERA with a 21/11 K/BB ratio in 44 innings. He was suspended for 50 games last season after testing positive for a banned stimulant.
