"Blue Jays released outfielder John-Ford Griffin.
Griffin went 3-for-10 with a homer and three walks during his late-season stint with the Jays, but he wasn't in the team's plans going forward. A natural DH, he's never blossomed offensively to the point at which he'd be a decent choice for an AL team. Though that probably means he'll play regularly for the Twins next year."
Ouch for the Twins. Hey, it's not like former Minnesota GM Terry Ryan's decision not to offer David Ortiz a contract five years ago, only to watch him become a star slugger in Boston, ever cost the Twins anything, save for maybe one ALCS appearance.
(Good catch, Pete.)
