Darren Oliver‘s signing with the Blue Jays — which we’ve known about for a while — was actually announced today, complete with terms: he gets $4 million for 2012 with a $3 million team option for 2013. There is a $500K buyout of that option, so his guaranteed money is $4.5 million.
Not bad for a 41-year old dude. Of course, he’s coming off his best year — a 2.29 ERA in 61 lefty-destroying appearances — so it was pretty certain that he was going to do well regardless.
