Blue Jays Sign Bautista To Five-Year Extension

Last year wasn't supposed to be Jose Bautista's contract year. At the beginning of the 2010 campaign, Bautista was a utility player who had never hit more than 16 homers in any major league season and was still two years away from free agency. But his 54 home run outburst has officially earned him a five-year extension. The Blue Jays announced that they have avoided tomorrow's scheduled arbitration hearing and agreed to a $64MM extension with Bautista.

Bautista will earn $8MM in 2011 and $14MM per season from 2012-15, according to the team. The Blue Jays hold a $14MM option for 2016.

As our Arbitration Tracker shows, Bautista filed for $10.5MM and the team countered with a $7.6MM submission. The five-year deal, which resembles Dan Uggla's extension, buys out Bautista's fourth and final season of arbitration and his first four seasons of free agency.

Bautista posted a .260/.378/.617 line for the Blue Jays last year. He reached base like a leadoff hitter (.378 OBP) but his surprising power (.617 slugging percentage) pushed him to the heart of the Blue Jays' order before long. A versatile defender who spent most of last season in right field, Bautista is slated to start the coming season as Toronto's starting third baseman. For more on his unusual arbitration case click here.

Hunter Pence, who has a hearing scheduled tomorrow, is the lone unsigned arbitration eligible player remaining.

Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes first reported that the sides were close to an agreement and Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports first reported the deal was done.

Two years too many. But these are things you have to do if you’re the Jays, Rays, O’s etc.

4 years 6 months ago

I fail to see the relevant property that is connecting the set you mentioned. Surely you don’t mean limited financial resources because that is obviously just false.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

rays, jays, and O’s are not favourable among free agents

4 years 6 months ago

Plus defender at 3rd and RF. Even played some 1B. Versatility matter Dominican leader in clubhouse, Escobar, Hecchvaria, Encarnacion and other Latin players on their way up. Cannot be a bad thing to have a character guy who led the majors in HR mentoring young up and comers. 10 HR in Sept 09, continued it into 10-11. Not a bad signing at all.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex

he is not a plus defender. please understand that

brendonkuhn
4 years 6 months ago

why don’t you think he’s a plus defender?

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

UZR and Totalzone and DRS all agree that he is well below average

Guest
4 years 6 months ago

I’ve seen multiple posts talking about his above average defense.. Most people who split time at multiple positions, are usually moving to shield their defense.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

even with my eyes i can tell that he’s not good defensively. In the outfield he doesn’t take good routes and isn’t quick on his feet. His catching is also a bit meh. At 3B his range is also weak. people overrate his defence because of the arm.

explodet
4 years 6 months ago

His range at 3B is fine; he just has a tendency to ole (and miss) on hard balls hit straight at him instead of staying in front of them. Not the best quality to have at the “hot corner”.

I agree completely about his right field defense, though. Altogether, he’s probably a -5 right fielder or so.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

most metrics say his 3B is below average as well. Many pirates fans who’ve regularly seen him man 3B will agree

explodet
4 years 6 months ago

I don’t disagree that he’s a below average third baseman. I’m saying he’s below average because he’s not good at balls hit straight at him, not because of a lack of lateral range. That’s just based on my own personal observation though.

Paul Drinkawater
4 years 6 months ago

Bautista has a rifle for an arm, and his defense is considered a strength…….I think the signing is idiotic, but his defense has never been questioned

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

you might want to do some research around fangraphs. His defensive capabilities, other than his strong arm, are all below average.

I guess compared to Jason Werth’s contract this contract is not that bad.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

yes, compared to jason werth’s completely disastrous deal, this is only potentially disastrous

YanksFanSince78
4 years 6 months ago

By comparison to Zito, AJ Burnett’s deal isn’t so bad either by your logic.

icedrake523
4 years 6 months ago

No, that one is still bad.

YanksFanSince78
4 years 6 months ago

Of course it is. Point being that “bad” is “bad” regardless of who is the worst. Just because the Nats/Werth deal was bad it doesn’t justify the next “bad” deal. Not saying that Bautista is one at this point.

YanksFanSince78

I guess the “by your logic” part was skipped over , huh?

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex

Furge
4 years 6 months ago

Hopefully Bautista turns in good seasons in 2011/12. AA could use that as trade bait.

renegade24
4 years 6 months ago

What is with Jays fans NON-STOP talk about trading away players once they get good? Are you a Leafs fan or something? Enough!

Furge
4 years 6 months ago

Probably because he was virtually unheard of prior to last season. It seems a little naive to expect Bautista to be the real deal. Brady Anderson hit 50, then hit 18. Louis Gonzalez hit 57, then hit 28. Adrian Beltre hit 48, then hit 19. Do you see where I’m going with this? Especially since he hasn’t hit more than 16 prior to the 2010 season. I hope I’m wrong though, renegade, and I hope the Bautista we saw in 2010 is the same Bautista we signed.

4 years 6 months ago

Amen

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

you mean you don’t want to trade away a player past his peak and is about to be on the decline for blue chip prospects?

Holidayjesus
4 years 6 months ago

This guy is a career .240 BA hitter and that is putting it nicely. He had a pretty nice season, I agree. But it’s very unlikely he’ll even do it again. It’s like Blue Jays are just investing in his raw power. This guy will not be the same caliber player next season when pitchers adjust to him; a .240 career hitter does not make key readjustments.

TheodoreRoosevelt
4 years 6 months ago

Adjustments have been made, circumstances have changed. Part of the Bautista enigma is that I’m not sure you can legitimately compare the rest of his career to what he did in 2010 and the tailend of 2009. I think it’s only at the end of 2011 that we’ll have an accurate gauge of the guy.

rzepczynski
4 years 6 months ago

that made no sense…. for starters who cares about batting average when he has that OPS, and what do you mean a 240 hitter does not make key readjustments what does his batting average have anything to do with if he readjusts lol…. even if he regresses 20 homeruns he will still be a middle of the lineup hitter, he is great in the clubhouse apparently and the jays need a new face of the franchise i dont mind the deal… would of preferred less years

renegade24
4 years 6 months ago

Batting average is useless. Try again.

Holidayjesus
4 years 6 months ago

Useless? Do you even watch baseball? Batting average determines how much you get a hit. The higher determines how much of plate discipline a player has or adjustments that player makes. Without his homers, he would just be an expensive utility player.

Matt_CC
4 years 6 months ago

Yes useless. Plate discipline is more accurately described by OBP and his OBP is routinely 100 points higher than his BA.

Guest
4 years 6 months ago

You sound really smart. I think you should continue to ignore OBP, defensive versitility, outfield assists, and so on. A .260 batting average trumps all these stats.

Furge
4 years 6 months ago

Outfield assists are sort of moot since he’s playing 3rd.

4 years 6 months ago

No. He’s that good.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

one of those things does not belong

vtadave
4 years 6 months ago

And without Roy Halladay’s ability to dominate hitters, he’d be Jon Garland.

damnitsderek
4 years 6 months ago

Oh god, dude. You just shot holes in your own boat.

SpecialFNK
4 years 6 months ago

AVG still matters. it does determine the type of HITTER you are. OBP counts walks which are nice, but all a walk does it get you on 1st base and does nothing else with any runners on base. I’d rather have someone who is a good HITTER.

Encarnacion's Parrot
4 years 6 months ago

With Bautista’s walk rates, no one really cares about his BA. A regression in power is understandably expected, but an OPS of .850 seems reasonible for 2011. That justifies more than $13mil to me.

4 years 6 months ago

Thank you. Finally an intelligent comment on this thread.

strikethree
4 years 6 months ago

I think that’s the problem: we really can’t say for sure what his OPS will be. The guy came out of nowhere; before 2010, he was hitting near a .750 OPS. So do we just average that out? That career average would be a .794 OPS. He also isn’t a very good fielder (especially at 3rd) so it’s not like he can make up for the risk with defense.

It’s an interesting move; although, I would like to have seen him do it again for at least another year before giving him a multi-year contract.

Encarnacion's Parrot
4 years 6 months ago

I’d rather look at the median of his career OPS and 2010 as a guesstimate for what to expect.

.794 [.895] .995

Still seems high to me, but I can’t expect his OPS to drop 200 points. That’s almost unheard of.

strikethree
4 years 6 months ago

Except that median includes the .995 in the average (so you’re counting it twice)

A 200 OPS drop is not unheard of: Ben Zobrist and Ryan Ludwick come to mind. These guys were also one hit wonders. Although the power surge from Bautista is quite rare.

He had 1 more arbitration year so it’s not like there wasn’t another option.
The only way the Blue Jay lose is if he posts another great year (better than 2010) so he would ask for a lot more. Even then, do they actually lose? A) they could rest easily about Bautista’s improvement and B) he would be a much more tempting trade candidate if they chose to trade him.

Now, if he posts a more mediocre season like many suggest he will (or maybe a good but not great season) then he would probably cost less. Again, the Blue Jays would have a bigger sample size to evaluate his true talent.

Right now, they’re basing most of the deal on his career year which is usually unwise.

Mick_In_Ithaca
4 years 6 months ago

I don’t know what market you’re looking at, but to my mind, if Bautista has a season in 2011 something like 30-35HR, 850+ OPS, he’d be looking at a lot more than 5@65M. This deal allows the Jays to hold onto a good player, without turning into an albatross if the player busts. The FA deal he would’ve got with another good season would’ve been way more risky for the team, and I doubt they would’ve signed him.

strikethree
4 years 6 months ago

I think you’re using this year’s market and projecting it for next year.

There are a lot more interesting names that are FA’s compared to this year. This year we had Crawford, Werth and… the rest.

Next year, we have (according to Cot’s contracts) OF’s: Beltran, Cameron, Cuddyer, DeJesus, Drew, Guillen, Kubel, Ludwick, Pierre, and Willingham (Not to mention top hitters that aren’t OFers like Pujols and Fielder)

Obviously, some of these guys will be resigned and each has his own weaknesses; however, I don’t think the market will be as barren as last this year’s.

Bautista isn’t going to provide defensive value so he needs to average 850 OPS+ to make the deal worth it.

If he is a bust, then those 5 years isn’t an “albatross” like Wells but it isn’t anything to sneeze at either. Again, only the very best players post good WAR numbers year after year. There are many more players who are one hit wonders or players like Huff that do great one year and just flunk the next year.

The guy wasn’t even a regular before 2010 and now, some fans have him at 850+ OPS? I just don’t know. I’ve seen a lot more flukes than bench players “who just find it one day”… It’s not impossible but I would have liked to see more proof. (at least two seasons)

Yes, he could post the same or better numbers, but he could also very well drop back to his 750 OPS. That’s the problem here — figuring out whether it is more fluke than talent.

RanceMulliniks
4 years 6 months ago

He didn’t have another arb year left – he’d be a free agent after the 2011 season, which is why the Jays couldn’t just wait to see how he did this season. Assuming he does anything close to 2010, once he hits the open market he should have been able to make a lot more money.

strikethree
4 years 6 months ago

I meant the 2011 season. The Jays do have a period to resign the guy before free agency. If he gets off to a blazing start, he would’ve been a good trade candidate. (and, probably not as attractive with this 5 year deal since a trade team needs to commit so many years)

The OF market for 2012 isn’t that small compared to this year’s. Which is more likely, him posting a 900+ OPS or him going back to about 750 OPS?

I think he needs to average at least 850+ OPS to make this deal worthwhile since he isn’t a very good defender.

I don’t know, I think waiting another year would’ve been better. (Although, this isn’t a terrible risk and AA deserves the benefit of the doubt after getting rid of Wells)

4 years 6 months ago

How can you not? His career average is 200 points less…

Encarnacion's Parrot
4 years 6 months ago

A dropoff in OPS of .200 points is just as unlikely as an increase. The latter actually happened, and considering the rarity of it, I find it unlikely for it to fluctuate down hill as violently.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

the problem is that a .850 OPS is not reasonable. we have no clue what kind of hitter he will be

Mick_In_Ithaca
4 years 6 months ago

There are plenty of clues. They’ve all been on display since the beginning of September 2009.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

and his inability to hit has been on display since his debut until september of 2009

Mick_In_Ithaca
4 years 6 months ago

Which is also a clue. The problem is to evaluate the clues. It is not the case that we have no clue.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex
4 years 6 months ago

well my use of the word “clue” was more in term of how we can’t predict the level he’ll perform at

4 years 6 months ago

Thats a joke. Do you think pitchers and opposing teams went all of 2010 not making adjustments? Look at the monthly breakdown. He had a huge preseason and the pitchers made adjustements and he started off slow. Then he adjusted and had a huge May and June. Then a slow July and a huge August and September. The only difference this year is the fast that he may be pitched around a little more often. He is a beast end of story and barring injury, will still be a 35hr/100rbi/.260/.360 guy this year. Throw in 100+ walks and like I said, you have a beast with a cannon for an arm in the outfield or above average defence at 3rd base.

Well worth the contract.

Chuck Norris

It’s time to find out.

BVHjays

Lots of money for a guy with one good season under his belt. Hopefully the Angels will find this deal “tolerable” in two years.

Guest

AA will likely back load most of the contract into the 5th year. That way, in 4 years when the Wells contract is up, we can pass along Bautista.

It never gets old, does it?

4 years 6 months ago

They had to do it. If they settle on arbitration and he puts up even 30hrs then they are competing against other teams and probably giving him more money and maybe more years ala Werth. I think it is a good contract for now but we will see in 3 years.

4 years 6 months ago

I hope the Blue Jays and Orioles do better than the Yankees

4 years 6 months ago

I hope for world peace as well. None are happening.

FrankTheFunkasaurusRex

sadp
4 years 6 months ago

Based on this comment I believe we can expect world peace within 4 years.

4 years 6 months ago

good luck, hope it works out.

4 years 6 months ago

It was either sign him now or risk Bautista having another huge year and let him get competing offers from other teams.

$65 million doesn’t hurt. We saved 86% million from Well’s contract, so apply those savings here and overall we’re still in the plus.

carlpavanosmustache
4 years 6 months ago

I agree it’s too much money, but if the huge jump in production is a result of better plate discipline (he had 50 more walks then his typical season) it’s not preposterous to think he’ll be a consistent .850 ops guy with 30-35 hrs. The Jays needed to spend some of the money they freed up to justify shedding it in the first place.

Sniderlover
4 years 6 months ago

So it’s 5yr/60 instead of 65?

Could be a great, fair or a terrible deal for the Jays.

I like and trust Bautista swing and he played well in September 09 so I can’t help but think he can continue hitting 30+ bombs.

jnolan33177
4 years 6 months ago

If he can put up 30 per yr, and 100 rbis with a 270-290 avg itll be worth it. He dont have to hit 54 to make him worth 10 million- 12 million. That puts him worth 20-25 million

SpecialFNK
4 years 6 months ago

270-290? he had .260 in 2010 and that was a career high. he’s more likely to be .250ish hitter. that’s not bad if your Adam Dunn putting up significant HR, but when your not even getting 30 it hurts and not worth the money Bautista is set to get.

4 years 6 months ago

walks tho.

grownice
4 years 6 months ago

Heres an idea… stop assuming and watch the season pan out… its tough i know, but this contract could be great , and if it isnt itwont hurt the jays that much anyways, do you think they needed to get rid of wells? NO , they did because halo’s were desperate, money isnt an issue with the Jays, this is peanuts for them even if he only performs half as good as last season.

Guest
4 years 6 months ago

hey, its not the most sexy stat, but his argument was “Without his homers, he would just be an expensive utility player”. Im just pointing out some the areas where Bautista was at or near the top of the league.

4 years 6 months ago

OF assists can sometime be misleading. But watching him play last year showed he was a great outfielder with a cannon of an arm. As John Farrell put it, the BoSox viewed him as a “premier right fielder” last year. Farrell also said that they as a pitching staff made a lot of adjustments to Bautista last year, and he kept hitting them over the fence.

coolstorybro222
4 years 6 months ago

This is a stupid deal. I mean he will not live up to the season he had last year. That was his best year, now it’s ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE

He’s not getting paid as if he was going to repeat last year.

brendonkuhn

No kidding, some dumb comments here..do people realize what 54 HR, strong obp, and plus defense are ACTUALLY worth?? If he was paid to replicate 2010 he would of commanded 7/150

If they thought he was going to repeat what he did last year they would have been paying him Pujols-type dollars.

sorry, ouch!
5 years!? dude is 30 now and coming off an incredible career season.
F’n ridiculous! that money could have been much better used at someone who was more reliable.
I have loved the moves AA has made while GM, but this one is questionable.

what happens when hes hitting .250 (or under) with 20-25 HR? ..and this is at age 30. what happens when he is declining more?

$60 MIL for 5 years is roughly $12 MIL a season. what?! the Jays offered him $7.6 MIL in arbitration and Bautista requested $10.5 MIL ..so the Jays instead of giving him the $10+ he wanted, they go HIGHER? I feel like I’m hearing Will Ferrell sitting on the couch in the movie Step Brothers.. WHAT!?

if the Jays really wanted to give hi a long term contract, they could have had him cheaper and for less years.
after Bautista signed this and calmly left the room and got alone, he was jumping up and down like a kid.

I hope the Jays don’t regret this TOO MUCH.

4 years 6 months ago

I’d hazard a guess that this contract only pays him in the neighborhood of that $10MM mark this season and backloads the contract, just like most longterm contracts do. Assuming 5/65 is right, 9MM, 11MM, 14MM, 15MM, 16MM or something like that.

grownice
4 years 6 months ago

I hope its front loaded, considering the jays have so much room in there budget it wont aftect them this year and will only make things easier in the longterm, ive never understood why gm’s dont front load contracts sometimes.

4 years 6 months ago

because it’s better to pay someone later than it is now? paying 13MM per is paying more than paying 9 MM now and 17MM in the last year of the contract.

grownice
4 years 6 months ago

Thanks for the math lesson… My point was , for the Jays it would make sense to front load it considering they dont need the budget room that badly this year. Over time it will allow for alot more room as the contract goes on , and if he needs to be traded , the less he’s making the better.

4 years 6 months ago

Why should they overspend this year then? If they’re not going to produce a winning product then there’s no reason to increase spending. They obviously plan on contending within the next 4 years, and with Bautista in the heart of the order, so that’s where the money goes. Spending money just because you have it is an awful business model, and this team is just that: a business.

edit- The way it’s written, maybe my other post didn’t get my point across clearly. 9M 11M 14M 15M 16M is the same monetary value as 13*5, but by putting the big numbers later in the contract, the jays are allowing themselves that flexibility in the next 2-3 seasons, since 16M today != 16M 4 years from now.

grownice
4 years 6 months ago

It would make sense to front load it considering they dont need the budget room that badly this year. Over time it will allow for alot more room as the contract goes on , and if he needs to be traded , the less he’s making the better. I repeated it because i dont think you read it properly… or read it at all. but it doesnt matter considering the deal is already annouced at 8-14-14-14-14.

4 years 6 months ago

I read it, it’s just wrong. It doesn’t make sense to spend more money now, when they don’t need it. The more they spend this year, when they are not contending, the smaller their profit is. A penny saved is a penny earned, or some other cliche that fits here.

vtadave

RanceMulliniks
4 years 6 months ago

“the Jays offered him $7.6 MIL in arbitration and Bautista requested $10.5 MIL ..so the Jays instead of giving him the $10+ he wanted, they go HIGHER?”

You’re comparing apples and oranges. The two numbers exchanges were for a 1 year deal (in arbitration). The Jays are buying out 4 free agent years. If he was a FA coming off that year, how much would he have gotten paid?

“if the Jays really wanted to give hi a long term contract, they could have had him cheaper and for less years”

How’s that? Maybe by signing him long term back in 2010, but who’s to say that was even possible. Today, how could they have had him cheaper and for less years? If they’d only offered 2 yr / 16 mil, why would he accept?

MetsEventually
4 years 6 months ago

Ouch…should have waited…

TheodoreRoosevelt
4 years 6 months ago

The chances are that another good season would see him walk. And even if the Jays tied him down, it would be at a huge price that would still make people itchy.

This contract is a straightforward, aggressive gamble. I like it.

RanceMulliniks
4 years 6 months ago

Waited until when? He’s a FA? The Jays had a window between now and the end of the season to negotiate exclusively with him. There’s clearly some risk – if he regresses a ton during the 2011 season, he probably wouldn’t get this kind of contract (though who knows what a desperate team would pay him based on his 2010 and based on the relatively weak class of OF free agents), but if he plays well in 2011, there’d be little chance for the Jays to get him at this price.

4 years 6 months ago

OF assists can sometime be misleading. But watching him play last year showed he was a great outfielder with a cannon of an arm.

Catztradamus
4 years 6 months ago

damned if you do damned if you dont situation. If he hit the way he did for the last season and half again this year, he would have gotten way more on the open market. If he reverts back to 2008 levels, then you ask if the season was a fluke, or who he really is…

Either way this is the deal that will define AA as a GM, becuase ultimately, he made the call, and he believes Bautista is the real deal.

He’s gonna look like a genius or a fool.

$5427573
4 years 6 months ago

Agreed, though from looking at most things AA has done, I wouldn’t bet against any of his decisions.

Mick_In_Ithaca
4 years 6 months ago

I guess at 5pm we’ll hear AA’s justification for the deal, as well as some of the details that we don’t necessarily have as yet. Is it 60 or 65M? Are there options and are they the club’s, the player’s, or mutual, and for how many years? Is there a no-trade clause, and how extensive is it? What are the details about this “charitable work” component? Etc.

Bautista seems to me a very confident, determined and dedicated player. There is risk in any deal (the player could suffer a catastrophic injury), but I wouldn’t bet against Bautista making this signing look like a steal for the Jays over the next few years.

OKGOJAYS85
4 years 6 months ago

Typically with all of the Jays big signings there is at least a donation to the Jays care foundation, it is part of their dedication to the city of Toronto, it has been standard in the Wells, Hill, Romero, Halladay signings over the last couple of years. I know Romero had a $100,000 donation as part of his latest contract. I would imagine at least 100,000 or more being written into this contract as well.

I’m actually thinking more. Especially with him starting a charity of his own.

4 years 6 months ago

Most deals are insured against major injury to the player. So even if he has a catastrophic injury it is not like it is going to handcuff the payroll flexibility. Just their facial hair dominance.

As an aside, even if there was no insurance, I really don’t think eating 12+million a deal would be the end of the world for the Rogers Corp.

Hi Jon.

I’d just like you to know, that you’re absolutely killing it in this thread. You should feel good about yourself. If you don’t mind, please continue this streak of awesome posts, which, at my count, is at 80 bajillion consecutive B+ grade or higher.

I’d also like to congratulate you on not being completely braindead, much like the high majority of posters in both Bautista threads over the last couple days.
