Blue Jays deal with Belisario falls through, remains free agent
The Blue Jays reported deal with reliever Ronald Belisario has fell through, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet posted in a tweet Friday. The two sides got close but never agreed on a deal, so Belisario remains a free-agent.
Details of why the deal fell through were unclear as of Friday night.
Belisario, who turned 32 last month, is coming off a bit of a down season, scuffling to a 4-8 record and 5.56 ERA in 62 appearances with the White Sox in 2014 before being designated for assignment in November. Prior to last season, he had been a solid middle reliever for the Dodgers.
His deal with the Blue Jays was reported to be a Minor League deal with a chance to make $1.7 million if he made the Majors.
Toronto figures to still be in pursuit of bullpen help for next season.
