Blue Jays reportedly agree to deal with reliever John Axford

John Axford

The Toronto Blue Jays have decided to take a flier on relief pitcher John Axford.

Axford and the Jays have agreed to a deal, The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal reported on Thursday.

Axford, 34, is from Canada, so this is somewhat of a homecoming for him.

The 6-foot-5 right-hander spent the past two seasons with Oakland. He suffered a shoulder injury last year and posted a 6.43 ERA over 21 forgettable innings.

Axford, who led the league with 46 saves for the Brewers in 2011, has a career 3.71 ERA.
