Blue Jays' Vinny Capra: Re-ups with Toronto
Capra re-signed Sunday with the Blue Jays on a minor-league contract, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

His minor-league deal presumably includes an invitation to big-league spring training, where he'll be vying for a reserve spot in an outfield that no longer includes Teoscar Hernandez, Raimel Tapia or Bradley Zimmer. Capra appeared in eight games for the big club in 2022 but otherwise spent the majority of the campaign at Triple-A Buffalo, where he produced a .789 OPS over 225 plate appearances.... See More ...
