  • Marcus Semien Signs One-Year Deal With Toronto Blue Jays

The Brewers may have been involved, but it's the Blue Jays who ultimately land free agent shortstop Marcus Semien. The deal mirrors ones signed by Josh Donaldson and Marcell Ozuna in previous offseasons-one-year deals at or near the qualifying offer that allows a player to prove their worth and hopefully cash in during the following offseason.

Semien hit.223 with seven homers, 23 RBIs and.679 OPS in 53 games last season, his sixth with Oakland.

It was a different story for Semien in 2019, when he finished third in AL MVP voting after posting personal bests with 33 home runs, 92 RBIs and a.285 batting average while playing in all 162 games.

As is the case with one-year deals, this is a move that could benefit both club and player. He earned $4,814,815 in prorated pay from a $13 million salary.

LeBron James felt a little inspired when he hung 21 fourth-quarter points on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Los Angeles Lakers' win Monday.

Defensively, Semien has played the majority of his career at shortstop (766 starts).

In eight Major League Baseball seasons, Semien, who is above-average when it comes to base running, has a.254 batting average with 115 home runs, 380 RBIs, 467 runs scored and 66 stolen bases - but with 731 strikeouts in 3,266 at-bats - for the Chicago White Sox and A's.

It is not clear where the Blue Jays will play home games when the 2021 season starts.
