Blue Jays ink P Janssen to 2-year deal

Feb 14, 2012 - 12:28 AM Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - The Toronto Blue Jays signed pitcher Casey Janssen to a two-year contract on Monday.

The deal, which is worth $5.9 million, includes a $4 million club option for the 2014 season.

Janssen, 30, appeared in 55 games last season, recording a 6-0 record with a 2.26 earned-run average and two saves. He became only the third Blue Jays pitcher, and first since Dennis Lamp (11-0) and Tom Filer (7-0) in 1985 to win at least six games without a loss.

In five major league seasons, all with Toronto, Janssen has a 21-19 record with a 3.81 ERA in 221 appearances -- 22 starts.
