Blue Jays Sign Joey Gathright, Raul Chavez

The Toronto Blue Jays have signed Joey Gathright and Raul Chavez to minor league deals, according to's Jordan Bastian.

The Blue Jays just non-tendered Chavez yesterday, so it didn't take long for them to get him back off the market. As for Gathright, his agent denied earlier in the week that the speedy outfielder had signed with the Jays. According to Bastian though, the deal is now in place. Both players will receive spring training invites.

Bastian also tweets that the Jays agreed to terms with arbitration-eligible players Jose Bautista ($2.4MM) and Dustin McGowan ($500K).
