Blue Jays Sign Veteran Reliever Tyler Clippard To A Minor League Deal

Published

on

The Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a minor league deal with right-handed relief pitcher Tyler Clippard.

Clippard’s new deal includes an invite to Major League spring training. The Blue Jays officially announced the signing on Wednesday.

A two-time All-Star, Clippard has an ERA of 3.11 over the course of his 11-year MLB career. The 33-year-old will now get the chance to compete for a spot on the Blue Jays 25-man roster.

Clippard had stints with three different teams during the 2017 season. He began the year with the New York Yankees, but was traded to the Chicago White Sox in July as part of the deal that sent David Robertson, Todd Frazier and Tommy Kahnle to New York. Clippard’s time in Chicago was short-lived however, as he was dealt to the Houston Astros less than a month later. He did not appear in any games for the Astros during the 2017 postseason.

Overall, Clippard went 2-8 with a 4.77 ERA in 67 appearances last season.

As long as he performs well in spring training, Clippard should have a decent chance to earn a spot in the Blue Jays bullpen.
