Blue Jays To Sign Dominican Left-Hander

The Blue Jays have agreed to sign Dominican left-hander Jairo Labour for $350K, according to Ben Badler of Baseball America. The 16-year-old became eligible to sign when the 2010 international signing period opened last July. Badler reports that Labour stands 6'4" and has a 92 mph fastball with feel for a breaking ball and a solid delivery.

The Blue Jays have been aggressive in international free agency under GM Alex Anthopoulos. They signed Adonis Cardona and Adeiny Hechavarria and expressed interest in others, including Aroldis Chapman and Luis Heredia.
