Jays Bring Back Four Minor League Free Agents
Tracy Thorpe, who was also eligible for free agency, was added to the 40-man roster last week. To make room for Thorpe, Kevin Barker was outrighted and elected free agency. Sources tell InsideTheDome that Barker is close to resigning with Toronto.
Kreuzer was signed to a minor league deal last offseason, and began the year on a hot note. The first baseman batted .309 with two home runs and fourteen runs batted in for the Dunedin Blue Jays, before being placed on the disabled list late in April. Kreuzer came back in July, but batted just .235 in 37 games. He's expected to begin 2007 with Dunedin.
Peralta struggled with Dunedin after a breakout 2005 season. The 23-year-old infielder did play better, however, during the second half of the season. A strong end to 2006 saw Peralta finishing with a .251 average after hitting just .230 the first three months.
Scobie joined Toronto on June 30, after being released by the New York Mets. The right-hander went 1-11 with a 7.91 ERA for the Norfolk Tides, and was signed for the rest of the season by Toronto when injuries and callups caused Syracuse to be short on pitchers. In 56 1/3 innings for the SkyChiefs he went 2-7 with a 4.63 ERA. The 27-year-old had an All-Star year in 2005 with Norfolk going 15-7 with a 3.34 ERA.
Tablado spent the entire 2006 season on the 60-day-disabled list.
