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.
