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.

The writer might want to use proper grammar, to wit “has fell through”.

i thought the Rays signed Belisario to a minor league deal
