Toronto will get at least one more year of the bat flip king.
Jose Bautista has agreed to a one year deal worth $18 million. There is also options for 2018 and 2019 that would make the deal worth $60 million for all three years. The free agent market wasn’t kind to the six time all star which helped to lead the face of the Toronto franchise back home. After six great seasons Bautista had a rough season last year facing injuries and only managing 22 home runs and 69 RBIs. The Blue Jays already lost slugger Edwin Encarnacion so it is a relief to have Bautista return.
Hopefully there will be plenty of more bat flips to come in Toronto these next three years.
