Blue Jays sign outfielder David Dellucci

The Toronto Blue Jays made a minor move Wednesday, signing 14 year Major League veteran David Dellucci to a minor league contract. He will report to AAA Las Vegas to get some at bats in, and is expected to join the Jays shortly thereafter.

The Jays could use a left handed bat coming off the bench. Joe Inglett battled an injury earlier in this season, playing in only 7 games with Las Vegas before being summoned to the big club. In 9 games with the Jays, Inglett hit just .125

Dellucci hit .275 in 14 games with Cleveland this year, so he can still hit for a decent average and can play all three outfield positions. Let's hope he doesn't turn out to be a disaster like Kevin Mench and Brad Wilkerson were last year.
