Jays Sign Clayton

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Blue Jays signed Royce Clayton today to be their starting shortstop, at a price of $1.5MM.

As Rosenthal suggests, Clayton's main skill, defense, has been deteriorating.  He isn't much range-wise and probably shouldn't be starting for anyone.  At least when the Red Sox went with Alex Gonzalez last year, he truly was saving runs with glovework.

While I don't love the signing, the Blue Jays will still field a fine club in 2007 once they add some starting pitching.
