Jays sign Gonzalez to one-year deal
TORONTO (AP) -- The Toronto Blue Jays signed shortstop Alex Gonzalez to a one-year deal worth $2.75 million on Thursday, which includes a club option for 2011.
The move came a day after backup shortstop John McDonald agreed to a $3-million, two-year deal that effectively marked the end of free agent Marco Scutaro's time with the club.
Gonzalez, 32, split last season between Cincinnati and Boston, batting .238 with eight home runs.
