Blue Jays (might have) signed Car-Jumping Joey Gathright

The Blue Jays finally made a splash at the Winter Meetings this morning by signing outfielder Joey Gathright.

Details and terms of the contract have not been officially released, but the video above is a pretty good example of the kind of speed and agility that the Blue Jays outfield has been sorrily missing.

Welcome to the club, Joey!


UPDATE: Apparently according to Gathright’s agency, he is still unsigned and has not been picked up byt the Blue Jays. That’s what I get for believing something that was posted at 5:30 in the morning!

Ian has been writing about the Toronto Blue Jays since 2007. He enjoyed the tail-end of the Roy Halladay era and vividly remembers the Alex Rodriguez "mine" incident. He'll also retell the story of Game 5 of the 2015 ALDS to his kids for the next 20 years.

    Sounds like it's going to happen though. Not sure this does anything for Toronto but I guess it helps defensively in the outfield.

    I'm still waiting for an official press release, so who knows if this deal might actually happen or not.
