And We Have a 2B!

MLBTR reports that the Jays have signed Maicer Izturis (formerly of the Angels) to a 3 year deal worth $10M, with a club option for a 4th year. The reaction in comments I've seen so far seems to be pretty positive about this signing. Just over $3M per year is only a bit more than what the Jays were gonna have to pay Aviles anyways, and Izturis is a pretty similar value to Aviles...

Not so mighty Maicer Izturis

The correct spelling for Mighty Mouse is Maicer Izturis.  Angel fans would all readily agree, once upon a time.  In my book Maicer is still that pesky, clutch, go-to guy that earned the nickname.  I expect we’ll all be in agreement before this season is over:  Maicer is still mighty. Fresh in my memory is Izturis batting fifth because no one else on the Angels team could be...

2012 Player Preview: Maicer Izturis

2011 wasn't Maicer Izturis' greatest season, but it was far from his worst.  More important than his production though was that for the first time in a long time, Izturis stayed healthy for an entire season.  Can he do it again in 2012?  Do the Angels even need him to? (EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to the early start, not all stat projection systems are available yet...
