Barajas Signs

Barajas Inks a Deal with the Mets
Good news for the Toronto Blue Jays and their fans because now former-Jay Rod Barajas has signed a major-league deal worth $1 million (with $1 million in incentives) for the 2010 season with the New York Mets. The deal, as explained in an older post, will allow the Jays to receive a supplemental pick in the 2010 amateur draft.

According to MLB Trade Rumors, this signing will allow the Jays to pick up the 41st pick in the upcoming draft. After thoughts that Barajas may have to settle for a minor-league deal, it is a good thing that he will sign a guaranteed major-league deal. With a minor-league deal, the Jays would not have received draft pick compensation.  

McGowan Throws Successful Bullpen
Another fact-filled blog post by Jays reporter Jordan Bastian that you should check out. The best news is that Dustin McGowan, one of the spring's biggest storylines, has thrown his sixth pain-free bullpen session after coming off an injury-plagued 2009 season which saw him go down with right shoulder and left knee injuries.

McGowan is quoted as saying that he hopes to makes the Jays rotation as soon as opening day.
