TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays have signed outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. to a one-year major league deal.
The 32-year-old was released by Boston on Thursday. He’s a .210 average with 19 doubles, a triple, three home runs and 29 runs hit in 92 games this season.
The left-handed outfielder was named an All-Star in 2016 when he hit career bests with 149 hits, 26 home runs and 87 RBIs.
He helped Boston win the 2018 World Series and was named American League Championship Series MVP that year with three RBIs in nine hits in a 4-1 win over Houston.
