Thanks go out to Smirnoff, Glaswegian, and MatO for the heads up.

The Globe and Mail reports that the Jays have signed righty reliever Terry Adams to a 1-year 1.7 million dollar contract and shortstop Chris Gomez to a 1-year $750,000 contract. To make room for the two, Pete Walker has been desginated for assignment and Tom Wilson has been picked up on waivers by the Padres.

I'm not sure I like Gomez and Adams $1.7 million more than I like Wilson and Walker, but the Jays needed a backup shortstop and had one catcher too many. Until Quiroz looks ready for Prime Time, Kevin Cash will be a Fighting Jay.
