Report: Melky Cabrera signs with Blue Jays

Melky Cabrera will sign with the Toronto Blue Jays, according to a report from ESPNDeportes.com (link in Spanish). According to the report, Cabrera will sign a two-year, $16 million contract with the Canadian club.

Cabrera will come to Toronto after a 2012 season with the San Francisco Giants that was, to say the least, up-and-down. Cabrera hit extremely well in the first half of the season - well enough to earn his first All-Star nod. Cabrera won the All-Star game MVP award, but that would be his last honor of the season.  Cabrera was suspended for 50 games by MLB a month after the All-Star break after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs.

Cabrera, who at that point was a shoe-in for the NL batting title, requested that he be made ineligible to win the award. Cabrera's suspension ran out in the Giants' run to the 2012 World Series title, but he did not play a part in the postseason.
