Blue Jays Sign Corey Patterson

Multiple sources are reporting Corey Patterson has signed with the Blue Jays. Terms of the deal have not been announced.

Patterson spent the 2010 season in Baltimore stealing 21 bases but logging a .315 OBP in 340 plate appearances. He has not been a full time player since the 2007 season.

If he earns significant playing time he could steal 25-30 bases.

Patterson has never lived up to the 5 tool hype he had when he came up with the Cubs in 2000. It is amazing that he has stuck around the league so long with a career .292 OBP.
