Blue Jays sign Dellucci to minor league contract

Jun 10, 2009 - 10:42 PM ARLINGTON, Texas(AP) -- Free-agent outfielder David Dellucci has signed a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.

Dellucci will report to Triple-A Las Vegas. Manager Cito Gaston said the Blue Jays are looking for another left-handed batter to go along with Adam Lind and Lyle Overbay.

Toronto began the season with rookie Travis Snider in that role, but sent him to Las Vegas when his batting average fell to .242. Snider's now on the disabled list because of a back injury.

The 35-year-old Dellucci began his 13th major league season with Cleveland but was released May 29. He batted .275 with only one run batted in in 40 at-bats, playing mostly as a designated hitter/pinch hitter with only one of his 14 games in the field.
