Tanner Roark signs with Blue Jays, Josh Lindblom goes to Brewers

The Blue Jays have added to their rotation signing pitcher Tanner Roark to a two-year deal worth $24 million.

Roark’s deal is pending a physical. The 33-year-old compiled a 4.35 ERA across 165 1/3 innings between stops with the Reds and Athletics.

Another pitcher the Blue Jays had made a play with opted to sign elsewhere.

Josh Lindblom will return to the United States after signing with the Brewers. Lindblom’s return follows two years in the Korean Baseball Organization where he had a 2.50 ERA in 194 2/3 innings of work for the Doosan Bears.

Lindblom will earn $9.125 million as part of a three year deal. It is unclear whether he will be used in the Brewers rotation or out of the bullpen.
