Catcher Ramon Hernandez has another new home.

According to Shi Davidi of Canada’s Sportsnet, the 37-year-old agreed to a minor league contract with the Blue Jays on Sunday morning and will report this week to Triple-A Buffalo. Hernandez was released by the Dodgers on June 22 after batting just .208 with a .291 on-base percentage in 55 plate appearances.

He owns a .263/.327/.417 batting line in the majors and will function as organizational depth for the Jays.

Hernandez has also played for the Athletics, Padres, Orioles, Reds and Rockies over the course of his 15-year big league career.

    Thank God they beat the Yankees to him, .208, late thirties, early forties, hell, he met all the qualifications.

      Sox tried to make it interesting, giving Papi the day off, but the Jaynes were no match for Brandon Snyder and Co.

      Your Yankees are headed that way too, Harry. 4th place after being swept by the O’s and dropping 5 in a row. They are only 2 games ahead of the Jays right now.

    Bosox will soon need Botox. All smoke and mirrors. Just playing over their heads for now. The AL east will be a bloodbath by the end of the year. Only one team can come out of this division. Too close to call now.

      Won’t be the Yankees the way they are going. Cano is the only bat they have now and as good a defender as Gardner is, he throws like a girl. Threw a nice 6-hopper to home last night from shallow center to try to nail speed demon Wieters on a sac fly. Wieters was safe by a mile.
