Let go earlier this week after making six appearances for the Diamondbacks, left-hander Ryan Rowland-Smith has agreed to a minor-league deal with the Blue Jays according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish.
Rowland-Smith’s action for Arizona was his first in the majors since 2010 with Seattle, but the 31-year-old has a 4.74 ERA in 370 career innings and has generally been pretty effective as a middle reliever.
His contract with the Blue Jays includes a June 1 opt-out clause if he’s not in the majors by then.
