Reports: Blue Jays, Justin Turner agree to one-year deal

Infielder Justin Turner agreed to a one-year, $13 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays, multiple media outlets reported on Tuesday.

Per reports, the deal carries $1.5 million in roster and performance bonuses as Turner joins the third American League East employer of his career.

Turner, 39, received a $6.7 million buyout from the Boston Red Sox and hit free agency for the second consecutive offseason.

He spent last season in Boston after signing a two-year, $21.7 million contract.

Turner batted .276 with 23 home runs and a career-best 96 RBIs in 146 games last season with the Red Sox.

A two-time All-Star (2017, 2021) and World Series champion (2020) while playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Turner is a career .288 hitter with 187 homers and 759 RBIs in 1,539 games.

He has played for the Baltimore Orioles (2009-10), New York Mets (2010-13), Dodgers (2014-22) and Red Sox (2023).
