The Toronto Blue Jays solidified their bench Tuesday adding veteran utility man Mark DeRosa to the roster. The Jays inked the soon to be 38-year-old to a one-year $750,000 contract with an option for 2014.
The signing more than anything sends a distinct message to fellow Jays players that there will be some accountability on the roster this time around. DeRosa is a consummate professional and has a reputation for being a positive influence and reliable clubhouse voice.
The new additions of John Gibbons, Mark DeRosa, Henry Blanco, Mark Buehrle and the return of Darren Oliver should go a long way in preventing any unnecessary antics and hold players accountable for their actions both on and off the field.
