Blue Jays Sign Aaron Laffey

The Blue Jays have signed left-hander Aaron Laffey to a split contract, MLBTR's Tim Dierkes has learned.  The Royals non-tendered Laffey earlier this month.    

Laffey, 26, turned down a pre-tender deal with the Royals in order to find an opportunity to pitch as a starter.  Three teams told Laffey that he could compete for a spot in the rotation and ultimately the pitcher decided that the Blue Jays presented him with the best opportunity to do that. 

Laffey made 47 appearances for the Yankees and Mariners in 2011, posting a 3.88 ERA with 5.1 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9.  In 49 major league starts, Laffey owns a 4.35 ERA with 4.3 K/9 and 3.6 BB/9.
