      Blue Jays' Justin Smoak: Signs deal to avoid arbitration

      Smoak signed a one-year, $3.9 million contract with the Blue Jays on Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. After fizzling out with Seattle, Smoak got his career back on track in 2015, recording a career-best .768 OPS and 18 homers in 132 games. He will be rewarded with a significant raise from the $1 million he got last winter, but Smoak may need some breaks here and there to match his 328 plate appearances from last season.

      Toronto Blue Jays' Justin Smoak Starting Game 1 of ALDS

      Smoak is in the lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. With right-hander Yovani Gallardo set to take the mound in the opening game of the series, manager John Gibbons will opt to play his left-hander instead of Chris Colabello at first base. Smoak could be a pinch-hit candidate with Gibbons often using him in a platoon situation throughout the season, however he will likely get a few at-bats against Gallardo before that situation arises.

Smoak smoked one out of the park for a grand slam in the sixth inning Saturday that turned a taut affair into a rout of the Yankees. He still, however, has just seven hits in his last 46 at-bats.
