Blue Jays sign catcher Blanco

The SportsXchange

The Toronto Blue Jays have signed catcher Henry Blanco to a non-guaranteed, one-year, $750,000 contract, the team announced Friday.

Blanco, 41, batted just .188 with one home run in 21 games with the Diamondbacks last season. Arizona declined his $1.24 million option for 2013, and he became a free agent.

He caught knuckleballer R.A. Dickey when they were teammates with the Mets in 2010.

Also, Tommy Hottovy was designated for assignment.
