Enrique Rojas of ESPNdeportes.com reports that the Blue Jays have signed Melky Cabrera to a two-year, $16 million contract.
After a tidal wave Tuesday, the Jays make another big splash Friday. Cabrera, of course, missed the final six weeks of the season after testing positive for a banned substance, but he batted .346/.390/.516 with 11 homers, 60 RBI and 13 steals before that. It looks like a pretty worthy gamble on general manager Alex Anthopoulos' part. The Jays are suddenly looking like real players in the AL East.
