Blue Jays, Colby Rasmus Avoid Arbitration

The Blue Jays avoided arbitration with center fielder Colby Rasmus, agreeing to a one-year, $4.675MM deal, MLB.com's Gregor Chisholm reports (on Twitter). Beverly Hills Sports Council represents Rasmus, who was arbitration eligible for the second time.

Rasmus, 26, remains under team control through 2014. Matt Swartz had projected a $4.5MM salary for Rasmus following a season in which he hit 23 home runs and posted a .223/.289/.400 batting line.

As MLBTR's Arbitration Tracker shows, the Blue Jays have three remaining unsigned arb eligible players: Emilio Bonifacio, J.A. Happ and Josh Thole.
