In from the one-year wonder category, it has recently been reported by ESPN Deportes that the Toronto Blue Jays have agreed to a five year, $65 million deal with slugger Jose Bautista.

That works out to a $13 million annual value for the player that led the majors last season with 54 home runs.

Prior to last season, Bautista had never hit more than 16 in his first six seasons in the majors. Also, with the scheduled arbitration hearing, Bautista was set to earn either $10.5 million or $7.6 million depending upon how the arbitrator ruled.

This is an interesting move by Alex Anthopoulos and the Blue Jays considering the great job they have done ridding themselves of poor contracts over the last two seasons.
