Toronto Blue Jays re-sign former Diamondbacks southpaw Robbie Ray
TORONTO (AP) — Pitcher Robbie Ray and the Toronto Blue Jays have reached agreement on a one-year, $8 million deal, making him the first of 181 free agents to get a new contract.
Ray accepted a 15% percent cut from his $9.43 million, one-year deal with Arizona last year, which turned into $3,492,593 in prorated pay in the virus-shortened season.
The Diamondbacks traded him to the Blue Jays on Aug. 31. The 29-year-old lefty was a combined 2-5 with a 6.62 ERA this year. He is 49-51 with a 4.26 ERA in a seven-year big league career that began with Detroit and was an All-Star with Arizona in 2017.
