Blue Jays Sign John Thomson
According to the Toronto Star, the Blue Jays signed 33 year-old right-handed starter John Thomson for $500,000 plus incentives. The 33 year-old has a mild labrum tear and was affected by elbow soreness and a blister in '06 as well. The Jays aren't risking much to see if he can rehab his way to a fifth starter job. In fact, if Thomson can keep his ERA around 5 he'd be on par with most fourth starters.
