The Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a minor-league deal with nine-year MLB veteran Luke Scott, an industry source told Sportsnet. The 36-year-old will report to triple-A Buffalo on a deal that does not include an opt-out clause.
Scott, who last appeared at the MLB level with the 2013 Rays, has 135 career home runs and a .258/.340/.481 career batting line. He hit 20-plus homers each year from 2008-10, when he established himself as a capable left-handed power bat in Baltimore.
The Blue Jays recently promoted Chris Colabello and Ezequiel Carrera from triple-A, which leaves the Bisons without much outfield depth. Scott has considerable experience as a corner outfielder at the MLB level, though has mostly been a designated hitter since 2011.
Chris Cotillo of SB Nation first reported the agreement.
