Getz Me A Second Baseman: Jays Sign Former KC Two-Bagger

Posted on Jan 16 2014 - 12:56pm by Erik

The Toronto Blue Jays have signed free agent two bagger Chris Getz to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training.

After four seasons in Kansas City, 30-year-old Getz was non tendered and became a free agent back in early December.

His career with the Royals was riddled with injuries, playing only 72 games during the 2010 season. In 2011 he appeared in 118 games while posting a .255 batting average with 21 swiped bags. In 2012 season Getz made three separate trips to the disabled list, first in May with a bruised ribcage, then in June with a lateral strain of the left leg, and then in August with a broken left thumb — which required surgery, ending his season.

Getz will be given a chance to compete with Macier Izturis and Ryan Goins in Spring Training for a spot on the big league club.

I grew up playing baseball and followed the Blue Jays from an early age. I used to rock a Toronto Star season pass 40 plus times a year, but those days are over… I’ve been a soldier for over 5 years, which limits my ability to attend as many games as I’d like.
