Blue Jays Release Shannon Stewart

According to the Globe and Mail, the Blue Jays released outfielder Shannon Stewart today.  He’d signed a minor league deal in February.

Stewart, 34, hit .240/.325/.303 in 200 plate appearances.  He dealt with a sore groin and ankle sprain during the season.  Stewart was paid $1.5MM.  Adam Lind had an excellent July and seems entrenched in left at least for the rest of the year.
