The Blue Jays avoided arbitration with outfielder Colby Rasmus as they signed him to a one year, $2.7 million deal. The former first round pick came over to the Jays in the three team deal that included guys like Octavio Dotel and Edwin Jackson.
Rasmus belted 23 home runs in sophomore campaign but he struggled in 2011 with a .225 batting average between the two teams he played for. He was awful for the Jays in the final two months of the season with a .517 OPS. He has a solid hitting eye and can draw some walks so there’s upside here. He’s also still young and he’ll turn 26 in August.
