Jays sign Podsednik

Scott Podsednik has finally landed a job, signing a minor-league deal with the Jays that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, according to the team. Podsednik, who turns 35 next month, will probably split time with Juan Rivera in left field.

Podsednik started last season with the Royals and was traded to the Dodgers in July when they needed a replacement for Manny Ramirez. He batted .262 for the Dodgers (.297 overall), and the team exercised its side of the $2 million mutual option for 2011. Podsednik declined and opted for free agency, but found the market softer than he expected. It will be interesting to see how much he got from the Jays.
