Roy Halladay Retires as Blue Jay

Former Toronto ace pitcher Roy Halladay has signed a one-day, free-agent contract with the team so he can retire as a Blue Jay.

Halladay was Toronto's first-round selection in the 1995 major league draft and pitched 12 seasons with the club. He was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in December 2009.

Halladay won a pair of Cy Young awards as the top pitcher in baseball — in 2003 while a member of the Blue Jays and in 2010 with Philadelphia. The 36-year-old right-hander won 203 games with a 3.38 earned-run average between the Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies.

With the Phillies, Halladay pitched the 20th perfect game in major-league history on May 29, 2010 and threw a no-hitter Oct. 6 in his first playoff start, just the second no-hitter in baseball post-season history. He went to great lengths to express his sincere gratitude to the Phillies organization and its fans. However, he also said he wouldn't have been able to get a shot with a World Series contender if not for the Blue Jays.

New Toronto Blue Jays Catcher

Dioner Navarro J.P. Arencibia's tenure in Toronto is over after the Blue Jays opted not to tender the 27-year-old catcher a contract Monday, while also signing free-agent catcher Dioner Navarro to a two-year deal.

Under the deal with Navarro, the Jays will pay him $3 million this coming season and $5 million in 2015.

The Jays had reportedly been trying to trade Arencibia before Monday's midnight deadline for arbitration-eligible players, but evidently could not find any takers. Arencibia, who was entering his first year of arbitration eligibility, is now a free agent.
